A MyDepressionTeam Member asked a question 💭

Is there any other antidepressants besides Zoloft? I have been on zoloft since 2011 and I am finding that it is not effective like it used to be. What other medication goes Wellbutrin? I started using that in October 22, and it helps a lot. I want to stop taking zoloft. Should I stop taking zoloft or wait for my next appointment?

Zoloft put me into my first manic eppisode. I am on the Antidepressive med Cymbalta. I have been on it for about 12 years.

More Than One Anti Depressant
A MyDepressionTeam Member asked a question 💭

After many years on different medications, I feel like nothing works for me anymore. Doctor has decided to try a combination of 2 anti depressants together. Just wondering if anyone else takes more than 1 and if so, is it worth sticking it out?
