  • MY friend took zoloft while pregnant, IDK what disorder you have but she had been taking Paxil, and that is what they switched her to good luck!

  • the doctor can tell you the different names, then you can tell him youll get back to him. Then go home, get on google and search the names and reviews

  • Only your Dr will be able to tell you, even after all your research he is the only one that can tell you if you should or not . \

  • i say ask your doctor what options are available and ask him/her for information on them. don't be afraid to request a sit down meeting with your dr and take the time to thoroughly discuss all your options and ask every question you can think of. It's good to research yourself, but remember that the web is not always the most reliable place so always check with your doctor no matter what. and if your dr isnt willing to take time with you and answer your questions until you fell comfortable with your decision, then look for a new dr. also, maybe try some therapy as well...if you can get through it without meds, that would be good too. Not to be repetitive but always talk to your dr!
