OK, so I started taking it again. That was a terrible idea to stop it😵😥! Some of you warned me, but I didn’t wanna listen. I didn’t realise how much it helped or I had forgotten.
Here is the shitty part, I’m not sleeping again 😥. This was the original reason I tried to get off it, because the months of restless sleep were causing me to be just as irritable and depressed it seemed. Ugh, I slept like a baby off of it..but I def need to stay on it. I wake up every few hours now, just like before though..damn.
I’m really frustrated because my doctors are still hard to get through to. I called back yesterday hoping to get in and they said their is nothing available until February. I do believe this type of shit is what drives some to addiction. It can be more reliable. Unhealthy. but damn sure more accessible.
I’m going to do my darndest to think on the bright side which has been a challenge for me, and be thankful that I kind of have a better idea of what’s going on. Now to find something that will help me sleep while still on Zoloft. (Had tried Trazadone before all this, but it had me ready to go hang myself from a tree and paralyzed at a table, mind freaking out, it gave me such bad anxiety).

I’m sorry to hear things got worse for you – I’ve heard that tapering off is really important. Do you take the Zoloft in the morning or at night? (Or both?)
I’m also sorry to hear your doctors are so hard to get in touch with – how frustrating that must be!
Grace and peace to you…
Thanks. I usually took it at night, but read to try morning if sleep issues happen. I took it in the morning yesterday so we’ll see what happens. I’m already awake though lol. I’ve decided to switch doctors and try this place some others have had good experience with.
And it’s OK, I can be hard headed at times. I am just glad I decided to try it again. I feel normal now, but need to def figure out this sleep stuff. I am starting to wonder if sleep deprivation was messing me up and also was why I was going through so much. It has been over a year since I slept regularly. Being off Zoloft recently was the only 2 weeks I slept through the night.
Hey, but at least I’m getting somewhere I guess. Thanks so much for caring, that means a lot to me. You be blessed as well. 🙏🏻🙏🏻
