Prozac vs Zoloft

7701 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  scaredtolive
I meet lots of people who say Zoloft was better for them than Prozac. I've even met people I would categorize as Zoloft missionaries. Never met anyone who liked Prozac better. Anyway, the standard descriptions of how these drugs work seem very similar, that makes me curious, what is it about the way that Zoloft works that so many people like more?

The only difference I noticed was zoloft made me less sleepy.
Zoloft and Lexapro are considered the "best" SSRIs:
My memory too is dying on escitalopram. Soon I will be on a regimen that raises neurotransmitters rather than simply flattening them out. SSRIs alone are not a good solution.
I think they both suck but that's my opinion on SSRI in general. It might work for you though.
