I have been taking Zoloft for a couple of years now, and am very happy with it. Zoloft, in combination with some other medications, works well for me. For the last year or so, my dose has been 150mg. Recently I ran out of my 50mg capsules and, even though I did get them refilled in time, I had forgotten to add the 50s to my pill holder for the rest of the week (Wednesday-Saturday). So, basically, I have only been on 100mg for about 4 days now. Oddly enough, I have noticed that I have been feeling better. I feel more like myself. Before, for example, I would hear a song that I liked on the radio and it was as if there was a part of me deep down that wanted to dance and sing along to it like I used to do before I started taking meds, but I just couldn't. My symptoms were well controlled, but looking back on it I have felt very "flat" for quite a while now. Since being down from 150mg to 100mg, however, I feel like I have gotten my joy and zest for life back. Could it be that my dose was too high? Has anyone else experienced this? I mean, I still had feelings and cared about everything as I always have, but it felt almost muted I guess would be the best way to describe it. Today I felt that spark within me again that I thought I had lost forever. I don't know; maybe it has nothing to do with the dose decrease. Maybe it's just that the weather is getting better here lately. But I thought it was very interesting, and that maybe I should ask the group what your thoughts are, and if this has happened to anyone else.
Thanks so much!
