blah (artist: Alma-Tadema)

(no subject)

The Zoloft caused me a lot of intestinal distress for a while when we raised the dosage, but all the badness went away when we reduced the dose back to 25 mg. We're holding there for now. It can take 4-6 weeks for Zoloft to take effect, and I've only been taking it for about 3 weeks.

My mood has been showing some slight improvement lately, though. I'm not making any assumptions, because there are still lots of symptoms of depression (sleeping 12+ hours/day, feeling socially withdrawn, complete lack of appetite, etc.), but I've been feeling a bit more emotion lately, not just the flat BLAH of the past couple months. I'm hoping this is a good sign.

The past 5 weeks or so have been pretty unpleasant, with side effects of Rexulti, food poisoning, and side effects from Zoloft. I may not have any appetite right now, but at least my body is working correctly and isn't uncomfortable!
