**I agree with you. It was probably a combination of the fact that I developed an adjustment disorder along with my dysthymia (or whatever it was), and that my dose of zoloft had been too high for too long. I cried over the littlest things, but I couldn't cry at times when it was totally appropriate.

**It definitely happens then, too, I can't argue with that. When my dose was too high, though, it was almost as if I wasn't depressed at all, which made me even more depressed. Like, I was depressed because I couldn't become upset about anything. I'm sure that doesn't make any sense, that's also part of the problem with depression, it's incredibly hard to explain, even to someone who knows what you're talking about. ;)

I also agree with med_empowered. It took me a long time to realize, but meds can't fix everything; they can be a huge help, but they don't make everything better. So I think that you should focus on therapy, as well.


Best of luck!
