Severe social anxiety.

Treatment Experience
As Zoloft is the only medication I've ever taken, I cannot compare its effectiveness with other drugs. However, taking this medication is what turned my life around. Just a few weeks after moving up to the standard dose, 100 mg, I found myself able to think rationally when around other people and to open my mouth. I also felt much better about myself in general. Not content with that, I went on to halve my dose--and 6 months later I am regretting that.

Zoloft may not work for everyone. But I experienced few side effects while taking the drug--just some headaches and insomnia for the first week or so--and it gave me the strength to make a life for myself.
