Depression during Detox

I tried going cold turkey after my 80mg a day Oxycodone habit for around 6 months, (total opiate drug use for ayear but withn lesser doses). I made it around 60-65 hrs before the depression got the best of me. By far worse than the physical.

I was put on methadone a dose of 10mg twice daily. The first day it took away my depression and was so relieved but also felt like a failure. The doctor perscribed Zoloft 50mg to me but Im scared to take it after all of the horror stories.

Should I still be depressed even if im on methadone? Is the depression in my brain getting better even if I'm on the methadone?

Any suggestions would help me tremendously please please thank you
