i took zoloft... let me tell u something. dp/dr + social anxiety = doom. zoloft relieved my social anxiety and i was able to socialize no matter the circumstances, and my symptoms are almost completely gone (it's been 3 months for me, 2 weeks in i started taking zoloft and 2 weeks later symptoms of dp/dr started to reduce). i have only
one symptoms left- difficulty swallowing, which is very easy to ignore RELATIVE to other symptoms that i had, and it is reducing over time...
don't be afraid of side's of meds, be afraid of physical symptoms / effect on mood of depression and anxiety. good luck!!! ssri's are yummy.
its hard at first but u get the hang of it...just try to listen and focus only on your breathinbg...there r great meditation techniques you can look up on google and running is also a great way to get ur mind of dp
