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 suggestions are general in nature and you should consult your doctor before following any of it, especially before changing med doses.
