Can Zoloft Cause Depression To Worsen?

So I've been on 100mg/zoloft a day for about a month now. During that month I've been moving.

The move has really stressed me out. Its over now, save for the unpacking.

But the past week I've fallen into a depressive fit that seems worse than before the drug.

I mean, I'm not sucidial or anything. But if I could go back in time and prevent my birth, therefore hurting no one (with me never existing), I would ya know?

Is this the drug or just me being under stress?

Hi corkscrew ,

Well you know moving is very very stressful for most people and that with your meds not being fully effective yet has probably set you back a bit.

Once you have settled in and you have been on your meds for a few more weeks you should get back to feeling gradually better. If not go and see your Doctor for a review and perhaps an increase.

Best Wishes

I would just like to add something. I know I've read some posts by other people taking zoloft, and they reported having some sort of a depression "dip" in their fourth week of taking zoloft. But, after that they said they were okay again. Maybe that's what is happening to you.

But, like jimbow15 said, you've only been on them a few weeks, so it's still early yet.

I hope you feel better soon. Try to hang in there. :console:

Yeah I had a dip on week 4. It lasted for maybe a week or so and then gradually things evened out. I would say it helps to just be active too. So overall I'd say really don't worry about things. Nothing is gonna be a smooth ride but you know I feel that Sertraline has evened my mood and I've now been on it for over 2 months.
