  • I'm 25 weeks and on Zoloft. It is wonderful! I feel so much better. I've tried other meds and Zoloft is the best so far in helping with my anxiety. Good luck! I hope it helps you too.

  • Yes my doctor prescribe it to me after I had my second child I was so emotional and at the time it seemed as though I was loosing my hair I don't know if it had anything to do with it but I feel alot better and my hair has grown back it has been 5 yrs now. I was taking 100 mg. but I told him about my sex drive about it going down hill so he good lucklowered the dose to 50 mg. All is good now I cant complain. Of course I had to do some changes as far as eating right and exercising and so on.

  • I used it and it worked, but I never used it while pregnant. I made a point to stop it before pregnancy.

  • Zoloft works well in that it just helps you to feel normal, not high or anything. I did take it during pregnancy without problems. But I have one word of strict caution. DO NOT stop taking it suddenly because the warnings on the package mean what they say. When my insurance stopped paying for Zoloft, I had to quit cold turkey when I ran out and I suffered a sudden emotional crash a few days later. Keep taking the medicine and don't self adjust.
    Good luck to you! :)

  • I took it for 5 months and stopped suddenly. (When my insurance wouldn't pay anymore) DO NOT stop suddenly. It was awful. I actually left my husband in the middle of the night. And he didn't even do anything. Snatched the kids up and left. Not good. But it is a good med for the blues. If taken properly.
