Talking Zoloft...How long?

I was on Lexapro 20mg for 5 weeks and just switched to 100mg Zoloft.
How long before it can actually start reducing the SA?

I take 100 mg. of Zoloft also, it took me about 1 week to notice a difference, and about 3 weeks or so for full effects. Everyone is different though. Good luck!

Yes, my daddy was a trucker. You got a #@*&$^* problem with that?

Thanks irishgirl.
Can you tell me:
Does it really do a number on SA?

If so, that is VERY exciting !!

I take 200mgs of zoloft daily. As well as 5 mg of zyprexa. It does ok with my anxiety. I don't get depressed anymore.

Same here, took the edge off the depression big time, and as far as the anxiety, it allows me to try things now instead of staying at home afraid. Hope this helps! Good luck with everything...

Re: Zoloft...How long?

For some of us, never. Zoloft was the final SSRI I tried. I was on it for 13 weeks starting at 100 mg and going up to 300 mg (Yeah, that 50% higher than the max recommended amount). It did nothing positive for me.

I don't intend to ever try another SSRI.

DEA agents, being on par with Nazi war criminals, should be executed for crimes against humanity. They are guilty of inflicting mass suffering upon legitimate patients.
