Hello all. :wave:

I'm new to the boards. I've been reading about the different things that everyone deals with relating to their anxiety/depression symptoms and I feel relieved that I'm not the only one. I feel less crazy now that I know others are dealing with the same crap I am.

I'm 26, female and I've been dealing with depression since I was in middle school. The anxiety has been a recent development within the last five years or so. I've been on several medications in the past to treat both. Trazodone-felt better but then I began to see light trails even on a very low dose, had to quit. Wellbutrin-very bad idea, came very close to being hospitalized. Celexa-didn't really do anything even at a high dose so I quit after a few months. I've been off any type of meds for almost 2 years, but the panicky feelings were starting to get the better of me and I was getting to the point where I was afraid to leave the house and all I wanted to do was hide under a blanket on the couch and cry, waiting for the world to end.

I finally went to the doctor and have started Zoloft. Mainly because that's what my insurance company says I can have. I've been on 25mg for 10 days now and I cannot believe how much better I feel. I can actually sleep almost 7 hours now and only get up 3 or 4 times a night(great for me), I haven't been a witch to my husband and family-I've actually been nice. But most importantly, I don't constantly feel like I'm going to die or that the world is going to collapse in on me. I feel fantastic. :bouncing:

From what I've read on these boards, that is a very low dosage. I do have a tendency to really "overreact" or have no reacation at all to medicine, which is why I've been hesitant to take any. My question is this: Is anyone else doing this well on such a small dose of Zoloft or is it too early too tell and it's just psychosomatic wishful thinking? I guess as long as its working I'm okay, but there's a little voice in the back of my head saying its all too good to be true. :confused:
