I started taking Zoloft about 4 weeks ago. It was a starter pack with 25mg for 2 weeks, and 50mg for the next four. But me and my therapist realized I needed more and I added 25mg to the regimen. Wow, what a differencee!

I did this because she says I need to be grounded before we can dig into the crap of my past. The reasoning is that if I don't know where here and now are (and thus feel unsafe), how can I venture into memories that are so painful? I need to be able to return to the present--where I am not being threatened. And so we are trying to find my antidepressant level that works.

How much do some of you take? What kind of changes have you felt?
