artvandelay Posted March 29, 2012 Report Share Posted March 29, 2012 Over the past month I have discontinued all drug use and my Hppd has pretty much stabilized. Even though I can cope with the stress better then before the visuals are giving me wayyy too much anxiety. I have been seeing a psychiatrist who has prescribed me Zoloft in an attempt to help with my anxiety/stress. After two days of taking Zoloft, It has made me incredibly relaxed. Not only that but I have started to have adopted a more positive way of thinking, not only to the visuals but to life in general. The only problem is that my Hppd systems have worsened. I now see sort of halo's above cars when I am driving and things seem more blurry from a distance. None of these seem to bother me in the slightest though, and I have pretty much gone from one extreme to the other. I have read up about Zoloft and in some cases it initially makes symptoms worse and then gradually they get better over time. However the general consensus on this forum is that all SSRI's are a bad idea. Should I discontinue taking Zoloft even though it is making me a lot more relaxed due to the symptoms worsening, or should I try and stick with it taking the advice of particular reported cases on success. Any personal experiences regarding taking Zoloft would also be helpful. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
