While Lexapro is similar to Zoloft it will not replace it quickly. Taking a few of someone's Lexapro will not prevent you from feeling withdrawal from the Zoloft. Antidepressants just don't work this way. You have to be on one for a few weeks before it starts working regardless of what you may have been on before.
Hi, starphy! Taking any prescription medication without your doctor's knowledge is dangerous! That's why you need a doctor's prescription to get them.
Don't take silly chances.

Not to mention you shouldn't be taking someone elses pills. Why haven't you gotten your zoloft?
And what does your friend do running short? Go to the doc and get it renewed. I knew someone in college who would forget to fill prescriptions. It happens. Glad you are attempting to stay on target, but one stays responsible as well. No sharing Med's, ever. You may have some rocky days ahead. Sooner you get the med the better for you. Take care, k
Thanks to all of you for responding. Although I have become very emotional & depressed again, since finishing the Zoloft, I will wait until I can afford to see a doctor before I take anything else; however, I really do feel “on edge“ & hope I can do something soon. I have been through some major things recently, have just started a new job, and therefore am very limited financially.
