Loc: Imladris, The Safe Haven of Ar...
I consulted with a psychiatrist today who diagnosed me with PTSD, major depression and panic disorder, is taking me off effexor xr 150mg and wrote Zoloft for me. Even gave me free samples to get me going....I feel like I've been diagnosed with appendicitis and the doc is gonna give me an alka seltzer for the cramps... am I just treating the symptoms or really getting to the root of the problem. What is the root of the problem? Is it the abuse? The sexual acting out afterwards? The drinking? the drugs? The porn? This is so messed up. So does anyone know if zoloft makes one horny or what? Will it make me space out even more than i already do? I am anxious...about so many things. Where is the rewind button?

I WISH I HAD A REWIND BUTTON. I HAVENT FOUND CELEXA TO HAVE ANY AFFECT ON THE PENIS. BUT I KNOW IT IS HELPING ME COPE. I KEEP ASKING MY THERAPIST IF TODAY IS THE DAY THAT I CAN QUIT THE MEDS AND SHE SAYS ITS UP TO ME. AND I KNOW IM NOT READY, BUT I PRETEND TO DO WITH OUT IT. WHATEVER IT TAKES TO LEAD A "NORMAL" LIFE CANT BE ALL THAT BAD. THANKS FOR READING MY RAMBLING..

Just a side note about Zoloft... I have taken that and it messed with my stomach pretty hard (I have a lot of nervous stomach problems on my own without zoloft). Make sure you start out on a low dose of zoloft (50mg) and then after a month, increase it if it needs to be increased. Also make sure you eat food and then take it. For me the effects of zoloft on my stomach did lessen to a manageable point, but the first couple of weeks it was a killer!

Just some things from my experience with zoloft

DO YOU REALLY THINK DRUGS ARE THE ANSWER FOR DEPRESSION????????????? i was on celexa with very little success, then i was put on zoloft with i guess mixed success......i really do not notice alot of improvement, but when i quit taking it, i do notice a rapid descent in my mood.....my hour of depression turns into days....so i guess it helps.....i just re-started taking it a few days ago....we will see.....But i really do not see medication as a long term solution.....i think pills are a scapegoat and will not live taking pills all the time....i quit taking my heart pills several months ago and i will not be addicted to anti-depressants.....i will take them for a couple of months at my therapist's urging, but i will not live my life depending on any medications......i realize that this is my own way of hating myself by denying my body medications that will extend my life, but that is how i feel..... michael
