I was 18 when I was first told to take this medication. Maybe a month after taking it I started to get the feeling I needed to take more in order to get out of the Zombie like state i was in. That lead to my eventual overdose and hospitalization from the "side effect" known to cause adverse reactions. This medication made me more depressed then ever. i don't recommend it at all.

For the short time I have been taking Zoloft, I have seen improvement in my symptoms of depression. I have been on this medication for 3 months & noticed improvement within 3 weeks. As time goes on I am feeling more like my energetic self again. As well, I do not suffer any side effects from Zoloft. This medication works for me.

I have to say it worked better than anything else I'd taken, but that's not saying much since the others didn't do a thing. As a matter of fact, some of them made my depression worse. Going off Zoloft was a nightmare, as I saw tracers every time I moved my head. I decided it was better to live with my depression than keep taking ineffective drugs.
