Hi mats,
I am not an expert on this or anything so let me add that right away.
Just a thought, It took at least three months for Zoloft to work when I started about 7 years ago. Of course I started at 25, then 50, then 100, then at 150.. did not have to go more than that. I am no longer on it am on Celexa now for a trial.

Agreeing with cybercafe about other drugs and your history etc...

You do not drink or take marijuana or other drugs, correct? That is always an issue with meds.

I wish you luck and hope it works for you or you find a med that does.

peace,
oona
