Common Questions and Answers about Zoloft for anger

zoloft

I have taken Zoloft for awhile but it didn't seem like it was working anymore. I don't really feel down. I suffer more from anxiety so I started taken BuSpar to help with my anxiety towards money. But I have been feeling an uncontrollable anger. I can't talk myself out of it. I want to break things and sometimes even think of hurting myself. What medication would be good to take with the BuSpar?
Hi, I have a really bad anger problem and feel that I may be at the point of needing medicine. I am not big on taking prescriptions, and have tried all other alternatives, but doesn't really seem to be working. I know B12 complex is great for calming the nerves and I really have not taken in a while. I would like to try the natural way first before resulting to medication, but feel like I can't go another second feeling like this.
Is Zoloft just for depression? Or is it for other things too? Please help me!!!
I'm wondering if this sounds like the Zoloft could be responsible for me gaining weight. I have been on Zoloft since July 2006 and in the past two months I have gained 6 lbs. without changing my eating or exercise habits. I'm a small person with an athletic build - 5' 5" and I normally weigh about 114 lbs. I'm 26 and have been at this weight +/- 3 lbs. since my sophomore year of college (as recently as January, I was at 111 lbs. b/c I wasn't eating much due to stress).
Hi, I'm 24 I have been diagnosed as having bipolar depression, severe anxiety and OCD. I'm taking 100mg of Zoloft (for about 8 years now) It was recently up to 200mg, but my Dr was going to change it but while weaning off them I got so depressed and started having suicidal thoughts and there was a episode where I started cutting again. I'm going to speak to him to see if I should go back up to 200mg because I 'm still not coping that well. I also take 5mg of Zyprexa daily.
i am wondering what meds are good for anger problems? my grandmother died 3 months ago and i cant find the will to get up in the mornings and i have also became very angry. i am a grown woman but she was my best friend and my family is suffering because i cant get it together.
I was using Zoloft 200mg for over three years with no Anger problems. However, I was lethargic and had no desire to do anything, kind of Zombie-like. My doctor dropped the zoloft to 175 and then 150 however, after about 10 days there was still no change in my condition. Then, my doctor added Wellbutrin XL 300mg and after 7 days I started to perk up and felt like doing things again.
A friend of mine takes Celexa and another takes Zoloft, both for the same kind of problem, and each came to their choice by trial and error (or, to put it more accurately, error and trial). You might talk to the doc who prescribed what you are on and ask about the dosage and the intended effect, and point out that it isn't working much. You threw the papers on the desk because that was too laborious, or you felt challenged, or it seemed too slow, or what?
Has prescribed 25mg of zoloft a day. I have been treated for gerd and acid reflux with no change. I am an Iraq vet withild PTSD and have been fighting every day to maintain my mental stability Dont get me wrong I'm not crazy I just have some anger issues Im terrified if I start this med I may fix one problem and lose my mental stability. That and why would a dr. Prescribe a med that's side effects are partially the same as what he is trying to treat with it.
yes, without a doubt.
I have been on zoloft for 8 years, .50 mlg. I was diagnosed because of memopause. Now I want to see if I still need to be on it. With a Dr's direction I started with going off 1/2 pill every day for two weeks. Then I did 1/2 pill every other day for 2 weeks. Now I'm off it but I can hardly stay awake at work from 8:30 am to 12 pm, I'm lightheaded during that time and I have anger issues. Do you have any advice?
I was taking 50mg for the last 3 years. The depression and anger though came for me in my first trimester while I was still on my full dose though - I contributed it mostly to hormones (and the fact that I had severe morning sickness that lasted 24 hours a day 7 days a week until my second trimester). It did pass though - and all is well now, except my main withdrawal symptom is the strange feeling in my head - kinda like dizziness but not and esp. when I turn my head.
I was on zoloft (75 mg/day) for 31/2 years. To start the weaning process, I have reduced my dose to every other day. It has been about 10 days. Now I have what feels like hunger pangs almost all the time, even after I have recently eaten. I'm also having night sweats. Is this all part of the withdrawal process? I can handle anything as long as I know it's normal and will eventually end.
While at home, there was a lot of conflict and I believe that was the source of the anger I was trying to eliminate. My father had a prescription for Zoloft that he did not take and I began to medicate myself. Now I am married and do not live at home anymore. I am very happy and feel that the Zoloft I am taking is no longer necessary. I am experiencing nightsweats and am not feeling well. I don't want it to be a part of my life anymore.
My husband was on Zoloft a few years ago,it didn't work for him,but that doesn't mean it won't work for you.I can remember his doctor telling us he would need to be on it for 2 weeks before he would really be able to feel whether it was working for him or not.I think the important thing is to keep good communication with your doctor and if the medication is not helping you the way you wish to be helped by it let him/her know as soon as possible.
She is on 35 mg of Concerta daily and this seemed initially to help her control her temper tantrums. After being on this medication for one year now, her hair-raising screaming, punching, kicking over issues like taking a shower or getting dressed to go to school have become increasingly severe again. When sent to her room she will not stay unless physically restrined (holding door shut or daddy holding his arms around her). She goes from a high-pitched screaming sound to a low growl.
I went to my psychiatrist and explained the increased anxiety and agitation, and he increased the Wellbutrin to 300mgs daily and the Ativan .5mgs to 3x daily prn. Since this change, the anger and agitation has increased dramatically and I keep having fits of rage and feel as though people are constantly judging me negatively. This med change just happened a few days ago and my therapist suggested I wait it out another week, though I don't know if I can handle this anger much longer.
Anger is anxiety which is a form of depression. I took Clonzapam for this and it helped me alot.
Zoloft, yes that was one of them I used~uuuhhg. Prozac, Wellbutrin , others as well, all of them killed it. And the doctor always would tell me the same thing, I most likely just dont tolerate them well. Anti anxiety meds on the other hand have total opposite effect. Geez I feel really uncomfortable on an open forum about the subject matter. Im just really happy they allow you to lead a normal or at least a better life quality. I dont object to your being frank ,its just, well an open forum.
zoloft 50mg was to much for me. just like cymbalta. thosugh the 25mg dose seems ok for now. the razors edge with discomfort and anger has been lessened. what a relief that is.
She was given prozac,depakote,and trazodone. once released from treatment she began having anger outbursts. the doctor changed her medication to seroquel, zoloft,and trazodone and although she remains severly depressed she continues to have major anger outbursts. Prior to being placed on mood stabilzers she has never had angry outbursts only depression. can mood stabilizers create anger outbursts in teens.
I also learned that there is a difference between anti-depressants and anti-anxiety med's, your doc should discuss which would be best for you, I wouldn't suggest going back on Zoloft if you had anger while on it. This is just my personal experience with Zoloft, so I hope you find something that works for you. Let us know!
No, you can't continue giving her zoloft. Its not a drug to play around with - and that is what you are doing. I am not exactly sure how to stop giving it. Cold turkey might be bad. I would definitely tell your doctor. Your doctor needs to know because its possible that she has been miss medicated or miss diagnosed, and this information might be helpful.
I met with the DR today where I go to counseling. She is starting me on zoloft for mild depression and anxiety. Anyone have any info on taking this during treatment? She said I'd be fine taking during tx but wanted to hear from everyone here. Also she said this might help with sleep but probably not. Has anyone noticed it helping with sleep? The other med she is considering which helps with mild depression, sleep but not so much anxiety is trazadone.
My husband has been treated for depression for at least 5 years, but these anger outbursts go back to his childhood. What should we do? Is this common? Please help.
Ive been on zoloft 150 mg for about a year and it has helped me tremendously! The only side effect that I have noticed is sexual dysfunction. That bothers me, but my husband and I agree that I am much better off taking my medication, so we try to work around it as best we can. My diagnosis is BiPolar II with OCD tendencies and anxiety. I also take between 50mg and 75mg of topamax to help with the mood swings.
He was diagnosed with mod-severe clinical depression at age 25. He is able to get zoloft and ativan for himself and has for years. He has no psychiatrist/therapist and refuses one. He gets angry easily, verbally abuses, has such misperceptions it is amazing. Communication is soooo difficult. MY QUESTIONS: Does Zoloft become less effective over time or are there chemical changes that call for a dosage change?
The simple answer to the question 'can Zoloft cause permanent tinnitus' is yes, and that goes for for all the SSRI's. According to Dr Stuart Shipko, who runs a panic disorder clinic in CA, Zoloft is the worst of the lot though. He does warn that STOPPING taking the SSRI may make the tinnitus even worse though, so if you've been on it for some time, perhaps you'd be better off staying on it, if it's working for you. I only took zoloft once.
In my experience the anger doesn't start to dissipate for quite some time. For me it took about six years (and I still have some way to go). I think what made the difference for me was to have a therapist, who was new to the service, validate my feelings and experiences. Being told that it wasn't my fault and was the fault of the system made a huge difference to both me and my recovery. I perceive I was extremely lucky to have had this opportunity though.
I have been taking 100mg of Zoloft for a year now for depression. It is effective but my sexual desire is pretty much gone. My doctor suggested I try Wellbutrin. I am wondering if Wellbutrin is as effective as Zoloft, how much would be a good amount to take as compared to 100 mg of zoloft, will my sexual desire come back and how quickly it will help with my depression. I know, many issues to cover, I really appreciate your time and effort here! Thank you!!
