Do you wish you never stopped taking Zoloft? Because it seems like you were doing better on it.Like even after the withdrawals from you stop using it go away would you say you were doing better on it then off? :)
How are you doing now? Would be good to get an update. I'm currently coming off from 100mg and now I'm down to 50mg every other day. Next step for me is to stop altogether so just wanna know what I can expect.
I really do hope that you get better soon. I'm dealing with generalized anxiety disorder myself and have yet to take the zoloft because of the things I've heard about it. stay strong beautiful. things will get better for you
i quit mine too ... i think its been over 2 months now i feel great when i get anxious or whatever i just try and keep busy i listen to music that calms me down ive learned one thing with all my problems ... if you tell yourself you are stronger then all of them and believe in yourself you will be able to control yourself i often ask myself why am i feeling this way and there are often many reasons but then i tell myself i only have one life and there is alot more good things then bad i just have to set a filter by that i mean set aside the negative and look for positivity... if your thinking too much about something and your mind is active dont fight it give it something good to think about look into things you like such as make up clothes i dont know girly stuff try dreaming and living a litlle set yourself free dont be scared you got this 😎 hope you cheer up a bit and sorry if it dont make too much sense im french hehe
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
