I felt the same way. But 9 weeks in to Zoloft and I feel a good deal better. This week is tough because of a new job and I'm on the lowest dose, but I had 2 weeks that were amazing. I felt like me again for the first time in a while. Side effects we're annoying for the first week or so but one day they all just shut off.
Trials have shown that Remeron (mirtazapine) may be effective for OCD and it has a better side effect profile. I am taking it and don’t notice a difference, mentally or side effect wise, but I am currently at a very small dose.
Zoloft and Remeron are good. Remeron made me super hungry🤷♀️ but helped me relax. I currently take Luvox which has been the most helpful for me.
I'm debating switching to Luvox, but I'm concerned about the side effects. Have you had many side effects with it?
I am back on Remeron at it’s lowest dose and feel better overall. It might not be as efficacious for me tho since I’m on the bipolar spectrum as well. I’m thinking of upping it & adding a mood stabilizer. I will let you know Remeron’s main side effects are weight gain w/ appetite changes AND drowsiness.
Talk about it with your psychiatrist. Anyway they are not necessarily bad, you try and see how it goes with side effects. If they bother you you can stop them in agreement with your doctor! I'm with sertraline for years and no side effects
I havent had many side effects with luvox but everyone is diffetent. Talk with psych like Gio suggested. Let them know your concerns. Oftentimes side effects go away after you are on the meds for a bit.
