I was just put on Zoloft to help with my Pa and i was wondering if anyone has had succes with it? I also take img of Klonapin 2x a day. I used to take a combation of Depakote and Klonapin that worked great but the Depakote made me gain 60lbs to an alreay overweight body so i demanded to go off of it.

Zoloft or to give it it's English name ... Sertraline hydrochloride

I have been on and off Sertraline for 9 years.
I've had excellent results with it, how ever it may not suit everyone.
My current dosage is 150mg, but at one point I was on 200mg.

It does something technical with serotonin, making your brain hold on to it longer, so you feel better, however it can take up to 4 weeks for it to work.

I can say from personal experience I have not suffered any weight gain because of it.
I have suffered with insomnia, drowsiness, tremor, increased sweating (mainly at night),
diarrhoea, nausea, indigestion and a loss of sex drive.

Some medications may react badly with Sertraline. Aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs(ibuprofen)some decongestants and Saint John's wort.

Good luck with it, lets hope it works for you as well as it has worked for me.



Love, light and Best wishes
