First I want to say thank you to those who responded to my first post. The welcome was much appreciated.
As I mentioned in my first post, I have been medicated in the past, mostly with zoloft. But my problem was that I kept hitting plateaus and needing the dosage increased. This has happened every single time I have ever been on it. Right before I got pregnant with my first child I was also put on (in addition to the zoloft) wellbutrin and effexor. I was only on those for about two months before I got pregnant and then my doctor took me off everything. When PPD hit me I was put back on zoloft and only zoloft. So that was my only experience with any other meds.
I just don't like zoloft period. My appointment isn't until next month but I know I NEED medication. Does anyone have any input on what I should ask for? I should have the right to refuse zoloft, right? I know there a bunch of new meds out there I don't necessarily want the newest one but just something that might be more effective long term. If possible I'd like to just be on one med. Any help would be appreciated!
