Try Wellbutrin or Effexor they are stimulants. Effexor makes me both calm and gives me energy. The only real downside are the sexual side effects. I hated the SSRI class of drugs, I was on Sertralin too and it made me gain 100 lbs of fat in 6 months. Effexor is an epic drug, greatly helps with social anxiety and productivity levels. I would be on massive doses if it didn't cause a reduction in libido.

Thanks a lot terminator that really helps.. I'm off the Sertraline right now and started to feel better in like one day (although i couldn't sleep last night at all). I'm currently living with my uncle and auntie in Australia after leaving west Philadelphia (kek.. not trolling this actually how it happened) and my cousin's husband (who is actually younger than me) who is a doctor also stays here sometimes and i mentioned to him i was on Zoloft and stopping and he has been telling me to get a referral to an actual Psychiatrist and get on different medication.. I will bring those up when I do!
btw about the decrease in libido.. can you explain it more detail? Do you lose the desire to look at girls in real life and to fap to porn? I was hoping this would happen to me on the Sertraline but no luck. Still get triggered by girls in real life and i still fap to porn once a day on average. If I can just lose the attraction towards girls it would be a big step in getting my life back together (yeah i know the irony of asking for this on GLL lol). If Effexor can do that it would be worth it even without the anti-depressant effects!
However i didnt get the side effect of weight gain from Sertraline either. in fact im the lowest weight i've been in years at 79kg since i'm cutting.. Guess the sides and the effects are highly individual with anti-depressants..
Anyways thanks again dude.
Yes, lose the desire and more difficult to cum. It's like even if I'm in the middle of having sex, my mind can suddenly wander off to other things. At higher doses there's also some penile insensitivity, as if it's slightly numb. For me these side effects start to manifest themselves at 150mg per day or above.

Yah getting off Effexor is a real bitch, similar to getting off amphetamine I think because they're in the same class chemically and affect the brain similarly. But the thing is, if you have determination then it's no problem because you'll just take the withdrawal and know that you're suffering because you want to get to your goal which is being free of medication. I've gone off Effexor twice now and the second time was much easier because I knew what to expect and trusted that I can do it. Right now I'm only using a small dose to keep me on an even keel. I know that a larger dose would make me feel much better but I also know that I can learn to act how I want med-free, it just takes more work. Anti-depressants are a crutch not a cure. Nothing beats hard work.
I think you should listen to your therapist. If you feel like a psychiatrist could help you, do it! They know a lot more about this than GPs.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
