... changes in mood should i look out for??? I want to be able to help him through this as best as i can, and would like to be well prepared in all changes he will be going through... Thank you
What mg did he start on? I started on 25mg, then 50mg, then 75mg and I am now on 100mg. I still feel depressed especially in the mornings. But, I am somewhat better. I didn't have any drastic changes when started this. I could just handle things easier. Dr's say it all takes time. This is my experience so far. I hope it helps him. Keep us informed.
You can expect some mood changes or none at all. It takes 2-6 weeks for Zoloft to kick in to full effect sometimes even more time.
If he becomes depressed and or talks about suicidal ideation, he should get a hold of his doc asap. Sometimes what ever he is being treated for may become worst before better, the nature of the meds. It is nice that you are trying to be support.
Best of Luck to Both of You
