Medications are worthwhile for a slew of physical maladies, but I'm not so sure they are always good for mental or emotional problems. I derived more benefit and incurred a lot less risk from counseling.
I took Zoloft same complaint also I know TMI I could not finish sexualely at all while on it no matter what we did
I was put on it for a short time in the mid-90s. I developed the same symptoms and went off of it after discussing it with my doctor. I have a history of depression in the family. My maternal grandmother was bi-polar and my mom’s brother was diagnosed with depression several years ago. I have not medicated since, but thankfully I am able to keep things under control with prayer and a good husband who keeps an eye on me.
I had exactly the same reaction. My doctor said I was depressed. Of course
I was depressed. My two brothers, my parents-in-law, my father, my beloved
brother-in-law, and my sister-in-law’s father all died in the mid 1990s.
The old pill pusher pressed Prozac on me, and I took it for a while, but I got
that same “who gives a rat’s ass” attitude, and I stopped taking it.
Then I had to fight suicidal thoughts for several months, but I turned to God and
prayed, realizing that you just don’t barge in on Him.
I will never take any such drug again. I will get through any depression without
destructive, crazy-making drugs.
Now I take St. John’s Wort and Gingko Biloba every day. No side effects, just a
nice, even keel.
