My experience of zoloft is that side effects kick in striaght away, including loss of sexual libido, loss of appetite for food and dry mouth. The medical effects take a month or more and were only slightly beneficial. I'm off it now. Didn't like it at all. The appetite returned and the dry mouth settled down but the loss of libido remain lost. You could call zoloft a chemical castratent.
I was being treated for anxiety and depression which has effected me probably all my life without me knowing about it. I always knew I was a shy and nervous guy and then suddenly I hit 51 and realised I was still a virgin.
