Hi all, so I have been on zoloft for probably 3-4 years but I have noticed changes along the way and just in general it doesnt seem to work like it used to.

I really started it because of SA and just being depressed in general, but I never went to a doctor. It seemed to really help for a while and I noticed some other positive improvements such as my temper, it really mellowed me out and it made it much more difficult to "get under my skin". I am really starting to have some of the original problems again as well as new symptoms that I am not sure what they mean.

So here are the symptoms I am trying to figure out

Anxiety - I stopped going out and end up making excuses alot so I don't have to go out, it helped for the first couple years but has since slowly deteriorated.

Concentration - I have an incredibly hard time focusing on anything, even if it is extremely interesting I find myself jumping around articles without really reading them even through I want to. I am always looking for what is next, I skim through articles but don't really read them and after i finish reading a bunch I really hardly remember what I read, at least not in any detail even when i focus on my concentration. This carrys over to tasks and how I multitask, I am always jumping around from task to task never really focusing on one and moving to the next. This is completely contrary to how I used to be, and I feel like I am not learning anything and I am in a fog.

Motivation - In general I was very ambitious before zoloft and initially, but that has subsided and I am perpetually in a steady state and have no interest in doing anything above and beyond.

Hi Loreak! There's a medications forum on this site. I think that would be a good place to post this info. I wish I could help you but unfortunately I'm not familiar with that med. Hope you enjoy your stay:)
