  • I took that one for a while and never did get used to it....it made me nauseous. But I would give it some time, I think most people get used to it after a couple of weeks.

  • I used it once. Ended up in the hospital while they flushed the drug from my system because I had an adverse reaction to it.

    I started feeling like you did, just "weird", then I was conscious but became unable to respond to questions, it was like my brain shut off. I don't remember much but my hubby said I was like a zombie. The ER triage nurses took one look at me and hustled me off to a room immediately, no waiting. THAT fact tells me how serious it was.

    It turned out that Zoloft and other anti-depressants were not what I needed.
