I'm about 18 weeks pregnant with my second child and severely depressed. Don't want to do anything but sleep to escape reality, no interest in anything anymore. I started zoloft at 25 mg 2 and a half weeks ago, then went up to 50mg after a week, and have now been at 75 mg for almost a week. I am not sure that it is helping. I still feel severely depressed! When did it help you? How did you feel?
I'm feeling so scared right now that I will never feel better. They say that when you are depressed you should seek help. I feel like I have sought help -- I have a great OB, a therapist, an acupuncturist, and a supportive family...but I'm still not getting better. It is so scary because I feel like I won't ever get better and I don't know how much longer I can handle this (not that I have a choice).
Please share your stories of recovery with me. When did zoloft start working for you? How did you feel? I know this is the PPD thread, but at this rate, I feel like I'll still be depressed after baby comes.
Just need some hope that brighter days are coming.
