Pleaseee! You are the only one on YT comparing these drugs. I am curious about weight gain. I have been on Zoloft for a year and have gained 30 pounds. I am an athlete as well but it makes me not want to workout and makes me hungry.

Hey hun, what has worked best for your insomnia? LexApro or Zoloft? If you had insomnia.
Allie Hamilton (14 дней назад)
Hey do you still take the lexapro? I started it but stopped after 10 days. This is all new to me and I completely freaked myself out and I’m trying to battle anxiety without meds. Any advice?

Why did you not like Zoloft? Also with your Lexapro, do you have low sex drive?
•Jo• (25 дней назад)
Hey girl good on you for taking care of yourself ! I’m currently going through the same thing as what you’re talking about. My Zoloft has quit working on me after 4yrs of it previously working.😕 So now I’m slowly titrating down on it and starting on Lexapro. I don’t know how you take the lexapro at night because it gives me a boost of energy kinda like a cup of coffee or tea. I also gained weight on Zoloft. 😒 Do u live in California? I’ve been looking for a fellow mom that understands me and can excercise together. 😊

Have been on lexapro for 8 months. Originally took 10 mg and felt AWFUL .. super tired, unmotivated and felt more sad. Doctor changed it to 20mg and works like magic. Haven’t had a bad day since. Not tired didn’t gain weight not super hungry like I used to be. I was able to breastfeed my son with it while on the 10mg dosage. No side effects for the baby and was okd by pediatrician and my physician. I took it for post partum which transitioned into full blown depression.

I was on zoloft for around a month until I had a super bad side effect & had to stop suddenly. Zoloft made me loose hella weight and didn't make me wanna eat. Then I started Lexapro, best decision. I had tiny side effects the first weeks but now I can slowly start to feel the benefits.. Haven't been on lexapro for even a full month yet, but pretty sure I will stick to it. Hope you're feeling good :)

Elmert Hernandez I wasn't eating, nauseous, lost a lot of weight & I always felt sick. It was just overall shitty.. but Lexapro has been working soooo much better

Sammi McCasland what side effects did zoloft cause you?

Zoloft and buspar help me so much. Buspar has been called female Viagra 😊. I've never had sexual issues though so I'm not sure. I always have high drive. Everyone is different.

Those dark thoughts at night are probably from Zoloft use for all those years. Don’t mess with antidepressants. They will ruin your nervous system

Zoloft worked great, but it made me gain weight. I went off of it. Lexapro does nothing for me. I am on it now. I feel like going off everything. Nothing works. Xanax does help me sleep though...
Judie Sims (2 месяца назад)
MeYouPlus2 I love Xanex but I use it when I'm really in a bad way. I'm supposed to go back to the doctor for more meds....I have white coat syndrome so I'm afraid to go....it's crazy.

Didn’t you ever experience hair loss with either, mainly Zoloft? Im supposed to start that today but I’ve seen so many hair loss cases. I took lexapro for a month but the stomach discomfort was too much. But I think I’d prefer lexapro
MeYouPlus2 (2 месяца назад)
giggles0766 no, however I would ask your doctor, maybe have your thyroid checked?

Lexapro is for Anxiety, Depression and OCD disorder. Side effects are worse for men, but overall not bad. kills any proper erections to have intercourse for at-least two weeks, (which was frustrating), makes it way harder to ejaculate (Girlfriend loves that one XD), gave me nausea, etc.

Lexapro works fantastic at 20mg for me. Take care

thank you for sharing.. I am soon to start on meds but my doctor is still discussing what's best for me. I'm interested more to take lexapro since the side effects of Zoloft seem like a common thread that scares me.

you gained weight because your diet was crap not the zoloft
claire99ism (1 месяц назад)
Zoloft increases appetite, fact. I am 7 stone, never over ate but, it gave me the appetite of 10 men.
Cyn Jo (3 месяца назад)
arron frederick pretty sure the scientists control for diet when they do their studies
Ray Rand (4 месяца назад)
I was thinking probably not burning enough calories. Usually increased appetite is a good sign. You have to do things to burn those calories off, however. I agree with you about being skeptical about antidepressants making you gain weight, however .. I believe it's because they make people feel better and so they eat more.
arron frederick (4 месяца назад)
yeah bro and i have not gained weight at all but i put that down to my diet and working out cool bro
Reverie Marie (4 месяца назад)

Women 65 and Over (5 месяцев назад)
Do you take it for depression or anxiety or both? I have had clinical depression for 18 yrs. I tried diff antidepressants and settled on Zoloft because it didn't affect my sleep. Fast forward to now and I am completely upside down with my body clock and not sleeping well so I have decided my body is immune to Zoloft. I got a 10mg Rx of Lexapro tonight. I am taking 1/2 tonight and hope it doesn't keep me awake. Does it affect your sleep? If you take it for depression, have you had other side effects? Thx
Saving peace (2 месяца назад)
Women 65 and Over I take lexepro in the morning as it's an activating ssri so yes it might keep you awake. It's common for your clinician to instruct you to take it in the morning to avoid disruption to sleep. I also found at higher doses over 10mg I needed seroquel to sleep because of it but everyone's different. Also initially it can cause increased energy and anxiety and trouble sleeping but this is short term 3-6 weeks and then should ease off
Nia Long (6 месяцев назад)
Zoloth also, greatly increases my appetite along with headache and irritability. It also gave me bad anxiety.
Jeff Byrnes 36 (6 месяцев назад)

Robb001 (6 месяцев назад)
When I started Zoloft I did not sleep for 2 weeks, It did kind of work for me as the anxiety lowered and I was able to do a few things around the house that had me triggered and living in fear of. But I was still having big waves of depression, So I am now in a detoxing faze before trying Lexapro. Thanks for your video :-)
Elmert Hernandez (13 дней назад)
Robb001 same happened to me and now dr prescribed lexapro. Did it lexapro work for you?
Lauryn Bertie (6 месяцев назад)

Joshua Cabrera (6 месяцев назад)
Glad things are working out for you . I was wondering prior to taking Lexapro did you also feel low energy? if so, did it boost your energy? and did not effect your sleep much?
MeYouPlus2 (6 месяцев назад)
Joshua Cabrera yes and yes. I felt more energy because I didn’t feel down and depressed. Just the first week ish I had trouble sleeping but after it’s in my system I was good to go when I went to sleep.
Areti Koutsogiorgou (6 месяцев назад)
Is Lexapro and Escitalopram the same medicine? I have been taking escitalopram 10mg since 6 weeks and see no difference in my anxiety. I still have to take a bit of benzo in the morning in order to be calm. What about you?
A. Zio10 (24 дня назад)
Not true. Lexapro or generic escitalopram (sp?) Is mainly given for Anxiety an depression but works well for anxiety or GAD. It has a antihistamine hence sleepy feeling or calmed down feeling. Its sister is Celaxa. It does not have the sleepyness added to it. Each antidepressant is totally diff. One can work for one person an not the other. Zoloft is more activating. But you have to get thrue the first wks to reach the therapeutic dose. Im on 5mg of generic Lexapro. I have very bad GAD an depression. Both go hand n hand. Ive tried 13 meds. 2nd time on Lex. But only got to 10mg. But was taking a opiate at same time. Turns out Codeine blocks the usefulness of Lexapro. So I thought it wasnt working. Wt gain an sleepy all time for 2 mths. So stopped. Now I know this an back to it due to it had least bad side effects for me. The worst was Zoloft. Ugh.. anorexia, diarrhea, liver pain an enzymes went waaay up. Labs went bad. Flu like aches all over. Had to stop. After I stopped it all went away in 4 wks. Brain zaps are common or dizziness when stopping but always taper down. Effexor an Cymbalta. OMG. Horrible getting off!! Never again. Prozac bad. For me. It might help someone else just not me. So on day 4 of 5mg easing up to 10mg in another wk. Im sensitive to meds apparently an if this doesnt work doing the genetic cheek swab for which psychotropic is best suited for my body chemistry. Im also in menopause so Im sure hormones are an issue. Ive had this since 2014 at 46. So goodluck! #sicknotweak #noshame

Do you really need to be taking this at all? You are perfectly normal. There is nothing wrong with you. People should learn to better express their genuine feelings rather than try to suppress them. Feeling and expressing anger is normal and healthy.

how much mg zoloft you get? 25? this is nothing.. base dose is 50 and 100
Anna Morris (8 месяцев назад)
Im a mother of two as well and everything you said in this video I relate to so much! I am on Zoloft, have been for months now and have gained a lot of weight along with other side effects. I know this is personal but do you find that either medication affects your sex drive?
Das Priscilla (3 месяца назад)
I was on Zoloft for 2 years and I swear I’d never want to have sex. I only had sex to help my ex boyfriends needs but if it wasn’t for that I could have went the whole time without it and been just fine.
Sam (5 месяцев назад)
Since I have the same problem I'll tell you about my experience. My libido suffers under both actually (depending on the dose of Zoloft - above 50mg very much so, only 50mg, it's not thaaaaaat bad..) but with Lexapro even at 10mg. The thing though is, Lexapro just helps better so I had to make little sacrifices. My Doctor gave me a smal dose of Ritalin (I also have an ADD diagnosis) which helps (by increasing Dopamin in the brain) with my sex-drive. (taken ca 30 min before having intercourse). Does Zoloft effect your libido? I hope I could help, I know how difficult and annoying it is.
MeYouPlus2 (8 месяцев назад)
anna Morris I would say the Zoloft did when I first started taking it. The lexapro however makes me feel better then normal! I’m really scared if I get pregnant because I can’t take lexapro while pregnant 😭
