    I've been on Welbrutin for years and it had not helped me, so I finally went back to doctor to try something different and she started me on Zoloft and mentally I felt AMAZING. I was just so happy for once I couldn't beleive it. The fall back for me was the constant diareaha. It was to extreme for me to continue taking Zolofot. Trying Lexapro as of now. So far the Lexapro just makes me ... Show Full Comment

    Zoloft is, hands down, the best all-inclusive antidepressant. I had results almost immediately. It made me able to get out, eased social anxiety, panic, depression, and OCD. Unlike other SSRIs/SNRIs, Zoloft does not make me tired. It has been a God send.

    In August 2014 I started taking Sertraline 200mg once daily for depression and anxiety. Over the next couple months, I noticed that my hair had gotten thinner. By December it was coming out in the handfuls. I have been off of Sertraline for 3 weeks now and have not seen any signs of improvement. Being a 20 year old female college student with very long hair, this was a huge deal for me. It resulte ... Show Full Comment

    I've always resisted taking any medication and never wanted to give into it. My day to day was getting so bad that I would cry at the drop of a hat, over practically nothing. I was argumentative to everyone and always negative. My doctor started me on 25mg of Sertraline (generic) and its like the heavens have opened up. I'm so look much happier and positive. I very rarely cry if at all, ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on the generic version for almost 8 years. The only side effect (which I'm not even sure is due to the meds) has been occasional night sweats. This medication improved my life immensely. I never realized how much I needed it until after I was on it for a few weeks. If I continue to do well with it, I plan to never go off it.
