Switching from Lexapro to Zoloft

I'm only on my fourth day of switching from Lexapro to Zoloft (decreasing Lexapro slowly, starting with small doses of Zoloft) and I feel so low all of a sudden. I feel awful. Is it my imagination or am I already feeling the effects of less Lexapro?? I felt great for a few weeks, the best I've felt in many years, after it finally kicked in, but needed to switch to Zoloft because I want to try and have another child and the doctor felt Zoloft would be a safer alternative.

Is only four days enough to feel down again? I guess I'll need to wait another month or so to see if Zoloft makes me feel better again??

Thanks for any input.

Re: Switching from Lexapro to Zoloft

the doc has been smoking too much of the wrong stuff, IMO
theres no difference, both meds are the same type, SSRI or prozac type

Re: Switching from Lexapro to Zoloft

Zoloft is good. I had taken it in the past. It worked great for a while but I gained so much weight. Mostly because I felt the need to eat all the time. Right now I am taking Celexa and it works better for my body. If the Zoloft doesnt work out for you, tell your doctor and also ask why you could not continue on the Lexapro. Is Lexapro really unsafe? I would question it.
