    This treatment has been a positive experience for me. I have used other medications for depression and everyone of them made my symptoms worse than they were to begin with, I am been on this for over 6 months and it sits well on the stomach, aids in getting to and staying asleep.

    I have noticed a difference in sadness and irritability, but also a PROFOUND lack of interest in sex. Coming from someone who was generally a 6x a week person now I have desire for only once or twice a week. Not a huge problem for me.. but my boyfriend is a little annoyed.

    It seemed to work, but I also occasionaly had thoughts of suicide. I would never do it, but it ocaasionally crossed my mind in my thoughts. I don't know if this was from the drug itself or because I was in a deep depression from my current divorce. It's hard to say.

    I've been on this medication for about a year. My moods have mellowed, which has been GREAT. Prior to using the medication, I would get depressed for weeks/months and couldn't deal stress but now I don't have the extreme lows (highs & lows). It keeps me on an even keel. I also had a bit of anxiety going into public places where there were large groups like bars or parties. Now, ... Show Full Comment

    I started on 50 mg and that didn't seem to be quite enough--I am switching from the generic form of Celexa because there has been more testing done with Zoloft and it's generic form Sertraline during pregnancy; my husband and I are trying to start a family. My doctor raised the dosage to 100 mg and that has been very good with the depression symptoms but now I've had terrible diarrhea ... Show Full Comment
