i went to see my gp today to see if she can perscribe me some antidepressants. she gave me zoloft, but 50mgs isnt this too
many mgs to start off with? shouldnt she had given me this medication
on a much lower dose?

im going to call her tomorrow. but just want to know what you think.

thank you all:)

i just thought that they started at a much lower dose. When i took antidepressants about a year ago they started me with 25 if i can
recall correctly.

but i think thats a good idea to start with 25 to see how i react.

thank you Joan.
thats exactly what i want is for my system to adapt to it slowly i dont want to get a bad reaction at a higher dose. i dont quite remember if it was the same medication that was perscribed last year but im going to find out.

my depression has gotten worse and i need to do something about it now before i keep going downhill. im happy that at least im going to start something that will help me.(hopefully)

thanks again Joan:)
sadieone, thank you very much for this information :):)
i havent started them yet but i will and i really hope that
they help me because in my mind im thinking nothing will :(:(
