i have depression, panic and anxiety disorders, and i was diagnosed with all when i was around 8 years old. i have tried lots of different medications, but this one seems to be the best for me.<br><br>I have been on zoloft for about 7 years now, and it has worked pretty well for me, when i remember to take it every day. there are times when i go without taking it just because i think i dont need it anymore, and then i fall into one of my episodes. i cant eat, i cant drink, i cant do anything but sleep. every time i have one of these episodes, it lasts a few days and i lose about 12 lbs. <br><br>zooloft does work... but you have to commit to take it everyday. if you stop taking it, you can get seizures... i know from experience. and it IS a proven side affect. so dont stop just because you think it isnt working for you anymore... if its not, talk to your doctor. maybe your dosage needs to be adjusted, and then it will work again. <br><br>best of luck.
