Discussions that mention zoloft

Depression board


I finally decided to post the following questions. I have no ideas of my own, so...

First problem: I was on Zoloft for many years and got switched to Welbutrin last year. I have had recurring migraines since I was 16. The Zoloft had stopped working for my depression, but was still working for the migraines. Now that I'm on Welbutrin, my migraines have come back as bad as ever. I plan on speaking to my doc about possibly getting the Zoloft or other SRI added to my meds. Would this even help?

Second problem: Recently I have begun to notice a self-destructive pattern in regards to my work habits. I get a new job and everything is fine. A few months pass and I start exhibiting increased signs of depression. A few months later, I stop being interested in getting out of bed and going to work. Unfortunately, this is a recurring thing. I am experiencing this problem at the moment. I fear I will soon loose my position, which in turn deepens my depression. Is there anything I can do to try to break out of this habit?

Thanks,

Are you getting any counseling? You can't depend on medication alone.
