The doctor just gave my 18 yr old daughter a one month sample pack of Zoloft. He is a psychyatrist and she was seeing a psychologist there before that. She is suffering from depression which I realize, but her diet is terrible (poor vegetarian diet and low iron and blood sugar) and I know she was depressed before the diet. The diet has made a bad situation worse. She also has ADD and a learning disability and school was torture for her. I wish she would take fish oil and improve her diet but she won't do that. I have heard bad things about Zoloft, especially when it comes to coming off of it. Does any one have any experiences with Zoloft? I would like to hear from you. She wants to take it and start soon. I went with her as was agreed upon by the previous psychologist and my daughter. When we got there today this psychiatrist was rude to me and said, "She is 18, what are you doing here?" I said it was OK with my daughter and I had some concerns I wanted to discuss with him. He actually rolled his eyes at some of my questions!!! Right in front of my daughter. I am sure he put me in the category of overbearing mother. After I left she came out with a sample of Zoloft. We pay for her visits, no insurance for that. She is my daughter and I care what happens to her. I am related to doctors and socialize with doctors and have never seen anything like this. She agreed that he was rude to me, but she said he was OK with her and she is happy to get the meds she wanted. It was a bad experince and I am fighting back the tears. She's got the pills and now will do what she wants.
