I'm in such a bad place & I cannot tolerate the side effects. Should I beg my GP for Wellburtrin or Effexor? My stomach upset & dry mouth & agitation are so bad. I keep making bad decisions. I feel so hopeless.
Don't give up hope. I'm not clear how long you have been taking Zoloft, but side effects in the first few weeks of treatment is not unusual. It will take upwards of a month or so for this med to reach peak effectiveness. Be patient and if it has been over 6 weeks since you started this med then I would discuss your options with the doctor. Keep in mind if you do switch to something like Effexor, you'll have the adjustment period again.
