I've been taking Zoloft for a month now. I'm finally past all the bizarre side-effects but I don't feel any better. I feel like I'm constantly on the verge of tears and I'm beginning to think that it isn't having a positive effect in any way. Some side-effects still linger; insomnia, occasional spells of restlessness, shivering. I end up laying awake at night longer than I used to, thinking myself into anxiety attacks. I've tried almost every other anti-depressant and I'm wondering if there is anything that could ever make a difference? I feel slightly detached, like watching my life on tv, but it just makes me feel worse about myself. Has anyone else had this happen? Like I said, I've tried so many different drugs and I'm no where better. Counseling helps me feel better for a few hours but then I'm back where I started. I'm not sure where to turn next or what to do. Anyone been in a similar spot with Zoloft? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
