So I feel like I've done a big step tonight. Finally started the Zoloft after staring at it for months.
Good. In my experience it works better that way. :) Antidepressants can be difficult in the beginning, but when they work they can change lives. Hopefully, Zoloft will do that for you.
NOTE: I'm not a doctor, and particularly not yours, so there may be factors I'm unaware of. Therefore all advice is of a general nature and you should consult your doctor before following any of it, especially before changing med doses.
