Glad you decided to start - one person's horror stories is not a view into what your experience will be like.

I was offered Zoloft several times and kept refusing it because I was scared of the side effects. Well, when I got pregnant & got hit with depression (never had depression before, just anxiety) I decided to start it as it one of the only AD's considered safe in pregnancy.

Now, I regret not starting it years ago ... I didn't have many side effects and it took a good 4-6 weeks for me to feel better but I've been on it 3+ months now and I feel like a different person. The depression, for the most part, is gone and the anxiety is gone, besides the everyday normal anxiety that a pregnant woman goes through lol.

Good Luck with your recovery
