I've been on zoloft in the past for OCD & anxiety. It helped a lot. But I gained weight on it, so I went off and have been trying to deal with OCD through therapy alone, and some nutritional support.
It's SO hard to fight this without meds. I CAN do it, of course. I have proven that to myself. But it gets worse with my period, it is better up till I ovulate, and then I am downhill again. The rollercoaster is exhausting and I want to level things out.
I AM looking in to having my hormones tested, and if there is an imbalance, I will treat that with bioidentical hormones and if that does the trick, then great. But if not, I am looking in to Prozac, which is the ssri that my pdoc wants me to try.
Has anyone been on prozac AND zoloft (obviously not at the same time)? And what did you find was the difference for *you*? Obviously I know ssri's are different for every person that takes them. But in your experience, what was the difference between the two?
My pdoc says prozac is better for OCD. She also said it's better in my case because it has less weight gain associated with it. What are your thoughts?
