Hi Everyone,
Havent posted for a while, got so depressed after my surgery, not sure, guess it finally sunk in. So I'm heading back to do the Chemo thing, been feeling pretty anxious about it, got to put in a new port, took mine our a year ago, just not looking forward to it all. My dr startede on lexapro, but not sure it was makings feel weird so I stopped it then he gave me ambien for sleep, meanest headache I ever had. But now Im starting the zoloft, felt a little fuzzy yesterday, I'm not really good with meds they really react on me now more than ever, I had a reactionto the albuterol in the hospital also, pacing the floors on the hospital, what a night that was, kind of makes me paranoid of all these meds. So well se. How the zoloft works, let me know
what you guys are taking and stuff! Once again thanks for the support and being here for everyone who needs it. I like to lurk a lot and chime in here and there but you guys are so caring and supportive of everyone, may god bless you all!
Love
Donna

    Seriously, I take zoloft for depression (it works very well for me) and xanax for anxiety.
    No complaints. It's just finding the right ones, it could take a few weeks to know if it's right or not.
    Best of luck with everything, hang in there

    Thanks everyone
    Well trying the zoloft and I'm on such a small dosage hopefully it'll be okay. Thanks for your responses, I really appreciate you guys. Sometimes I fell like I'm going crazy or something than I just start reading all the posts and realize we're all in the same boat or maybe ship of some sort. I hope that you guys all had a great day, and a better tomorrow!
    Much love

    antidepressants
    Effexor is the one my oncologist prescribes a lot. She said it is one of the milder ones, and goes ok with chemo for a lot of people. Hope you are feeling better soon.
    Best hopes for you with your treatment.
