After some involved testing i was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder, single episode, severe, without psychotic features (296.33) and Pain Disorder associated with both psychological and general medical condition (307.89)
From those results my primary physician put me on Zoloft (sertraline).
I was given the initial dosage of 50mg daily and told since i am a big person (6'3" and 270) that we would do 50 because 25mg was a drop in the ocean. I was told by my pharmacist to take it every morning.
The day i started taking zoloft everything changed and not so much for the better, as i am also taking ibuprofin (which is less expensive that my percocet). About an hour after i take the meds i feel extremely tired and i have to go lay down, i ended up sleeping most of the day.
So at 30 days i talked to my doc about it, and told her that i thought it was helping (not sure but it kinda felt like it thought wize) but that i was sleeping all day. She said i was the type that was very sensitive to meds and that i should prob switch and start taking the zoloft at night, she also put me on 75mg now (1 and 1/2 pills).
So i started taking them at night but now i stay up most of the night and still i sleep all day. I used to be a person that was up with the sunrise and went to bed about 10pm and i never used to dream but maybe 1x a year if that.
And now i sleep all day, up all night, and i cant even close my eyes for 5 min without dreaming every time. I have very little motivation to do anything but eat, sleep, and watch tv. Have lost most of my interest in any hobbies and totally lost any interest in sex.
I dont know if others have had this experience, i dont even know if this is normal or not. All i know is i dont like it.
Thanks for listening.
