... some hard times I have been taking it faithfully for for about two weeks. How bad will this off/on risk I took affect me? And how long before I see improvement if it does work?
Hi, I am also on 100mg Zoloft, and I think it's wonderful! I read some info about Zoloft on Drugs.com and according to it, the medication takes 4 weeks or longer to fully work for you. It says you should take it at the same time everyday and don't miss a dose. I found that I started feeling better sometime between the 2nd and 3rd week and really felt better by the 4th, but everyone is different. I also found out that if I let myself run out and don't get to the drug store for a couple days, that I can really tell I haven't taken it! I've learned to not let myself run out, but in the past, when I did, I would usually start feeling better about the 2nd day after restarting it. Just be patient and remember to take it everyday around the same time. I found that if I take it right before bed I remember it. I found it also helps me sleep better. Good Luck to you...
Yes. Do not let your med run out. In order for the med to work you have to take it continuosly every day for it to work. On and off, you wont benefit from. Like they said, give it time for the body to get used to it. Four to five weeks, it will take to fully start working. Ive been on the zoloft for three months now. I started on 50mg and now im on 100mg. It definately helps. Keep up the good work. Take care
