Re: Which is better Celexa or Zoloft?
For me personally, Zoloft had a greater affect of lifting my mood but also made me not be able to really feel... anything.... it more like made it impossible to cry rather than not so depressed.... it did such a bad depersonalization job on me, as did Cylexa, that I could not stand myself. I didn't take either drug for that long of a time, maybe 6 months max but tried both several different times in my life, for one reason is that my mother did so well on Zoloft - it was her savior. But for me, no, I was just way too numb on it and felt out of my body, and almost dead. Did it work for the depression? Yes but also couldn't make me feel ANYTHING.
It's right, drugs affect us all differently and it can take many drugs and combos of drugs to figure out what is right for you. I gave up several times, it just got too frustrating and I thought no drug would help me. I hope that I can get up enough courage to post a thread about myself now because it amazes me that I am finally on a drug that WORKS w/out side effects AND is making me feel like me -- 100% me, just much much more calm and happier. (Cymbalta)
