I have been taking zoloft for three months, and it has helped to a certain degree. Before I started my mind was always racing with worrying thoughts, always obsessing about how I was so depressed, constant worry and always wishing I was dead. Now it is like the thoughts are still there, but they are not as intense as they were before. I am not dwelling on them as I was before. BUT........... I am still not happy, and a lot of times still miserable. I still have the negative outlook of always thinking the worse. Thinking nothing will ever matter that I will always be alone. So is this how the antidepressants work? My doctor told me when I started taking them that everything would seem "bright" and "open". That part has not happened yet. What are your experiences on antidepressants.
