Im a first time mom an the Drs put me on Zoloft 25mg right after i gave birth to my son... An it didnt change how upset an emotional i was... It was to the point i didnt wanna be around my newborn... Then my primary care dr upped my dosage to 50mg... An yet again that still did not work... So i stared to ween myself off my medication an i started to feel better on my own... Still have my days though... Did the meds make you feel worse or better?? I just wanna see if its normal and if you're better off working with ppd naturally..
im also in therapy now an they told me i have major depression disorder... something like that so is it also possible that this was my problem all along???
I just want a conclusion...
Sweetie hang in there. These meds take at least 4 weeks to fully start working. I started off at 25 mg for two weeks and during those weeks I felt more like crap. Horrible headache and nausea. Doc bumped me up to 50 mg and that was my perfect dose for me. But during all this time of just waiting. My anxiety was getting the best of me. It was hard but everything got easier once the meds kicked in. I felt less nervous, jumpy, not as much anxiety attacks. But whenever you get these attacks. Leave the baby in the crib and walk away. Breath in and out. Let me know how you do.
Yup sorry forgot to answer this. major depression disorder is full blown depression. That's what I have. Whenever you feel that your attacks are coming. Find a *,safe* place at home. And just breath it out. Especially when those anxiety attacks comes. Learn to accept them. Pushing them away makes them stronger. Listen to the attacks and it'll pass. Takes practice but if you keep doing this rather than pushing them away. You'll learn how to control them. meds can only do so much. We need to do the rest. :)
