My Dr's not believe that I may be suffering from PPD.  I was placed on Zoloft.  Went from 12.5 to 25 to 50mg.  I have been on 50mg for a week.  But on Zoloft for a total of 17 days.  I have heard they take awhile to kick in.  I am curious to hear about how you ladies deal with the side effects and raise a baby and a toddler.  Is the "relief" I could feel once it kicks in worth it to stick out?  My doc suggests sticking it out.  But, man, it's really hard.  I feel really "heady" not really sure how else to explain it.  Like changing pressures in my head.  I also have nausea through out the day and have no interest in eating.  I do make myself eat when I can.  My baby is 5 months old and breastfeeding and my toddler is 2 1/2.


Would anyone share with me their experiences?  Thanks!

Hi, there are so many awesome ladies on babycenter postpartum depression and anxiety site that would be able to answer questions like this if you don't get a response here. I have ppd it's gotten better but I'm not using meds.
