My main problem is lack of motivation/energy. Also have some insomnia. I also have hypothyroid which I am taking rx for. Thought about switching meds to either another SSRI or SNRI. Any recommendations?
After an extended time on a antidepressant they can stop working or working as well. You are lucky that you got 25 years out of the Zoloft. It is best to discuss your options with your doctor. You could also go on the internet and research possible options before seeing your doctor.
Hope it all works out for you.
Hi, Kathy! My friend, Janie, is right ~ you're most likely experiencing *poop out* and 25 years is a VERY long time to be on the same antidepressant.
It would be a good idea to have your thyroid level checked also, but let your doctor know how you are feeling. One option would be to try a newer antidepressant and another would be to try adding another med like Abilify or Rexulti which could booster the effect of your Zoloft.
It's hard to recommend another medication because each one affects every individual differently but I've had extremely good results with Effexor.
Best regards and don't worry. You'll be back to feeling yourself in no time! Wildcat
