I finally bit the bullet and started taking sertraline (Zoloft) on March 26; at the suggestion of my psychiatrist, I started with a very low dose (12.5mg) and held that for two weeks; I just increased to 25mg on Friday (April 10) and am struggling with the side effects....I just feel so spacey and tired and weird (no good way to describe the exact feeling)....I also feel a bit lightheaded and am finding it difficult to focus, which makes driving longish distances almost impossible. The truly annoying thing is that I had a pretty good weekend (I even went out shopping by myself), but now I'm feeling horrible again....is this normal? Anyone else have side effects that seem to come and go (or are delayed by a day or two after starting and/or increasing)? I'm trying my best to hang in there and not abandon ship, but I'm a bit of a mess right now and need some encouragement....I really want to give this a fair shot, especially since I resisted it for so long.
