My doctor recommended I take Zoloft, a medication for my depression, anxiety and panic attacks because therapy, mindfulness, and other strategies weren't helping me. My mom thinks I shouldn't take it. She says that it might make things worse. I have been doing my own research but I don't really know what to do. My mom said it is my choice to make. I am starting to doubt my feelings, and if my depression is as bad as it seems. I feel like I've tried everything though, and if medication won't help me then what else will work? Basically, what I'm asking is does Zoloft really work or should I just wait for my depression to pass?
