    Yes, I'm having the same with the max dose of sertraline (been on it 33 days now) and I could cry for everyone! I'm hoping it's my emotions surfacing and releasing my problems

    I think the drug is not right for you and you need to have a medical review with your Dr

    Hello frill, I was put on Venlafaxine when my doc decided Seroxat was no longer working for me. I too went from 75 to 150 to 225mg. On the high dose I felt like a zombie with no life and no feelings, no emotion. I have gradually worked my way back to 75mg but now I struggle to get up and spend my days with no motivation. I have told the doc of my experiences and those of others on this drug but he doesn't seem interested. I felt more "normal" with Seroxat.
