Somebody help me. Please.

I don't know what to do. I started online courses in April. I am now bored with my 7th and 8th class. I am falling behind because my attention is not there. Do you have any suggestions as to how to get back on track. I started zoloft about a month ago because my pdd was getting out of control and it seems as though when I started this medication my interest level decreased.

  • Yeah. It does have that kind of affect on some people. Scary, isn't it. I would seriously talk to your Dr. about it. Thats not something you want to let go. I've heard of some people who seriously ruin their lives because their inhibitions are messed up.

  • I was on Zoloft and it was like I was numb. My sex drive went to zero, I didn't really care about anything. I switched to Wellbutrin and it is so much better. Talk to you doctor.

  • I take a no doz whenever I have trouble concentrating on my work. I have a touch of the ADHD tho. Check with doc/pharmacist re contraindications, if none, you can try that.

  • all i can say is fight your way through. Online schooling is the same as in school. The bill will still be there whether you finish or me when io tell you I screwed up, I was in it for 2 yrs and now I am done because of the same situation as you. I think now I am 12000 in debt come 4 months, lol, and now I feel like it was all for nothing. You will feel much better when you finish, just keep on going. do anything you can to finish. Good Luck!!!
