I am diagnosed Adhd +ocd+social anxiety .I have been taking zoloft ( 50 mg 2x a day) since 2 weeks with ritalin (15 mg 3x a day) . I was on luvox before which hadn't helped me .did anyone try this medications together? How much time should zoloft need to show benefits?

What does the Zoloft do? Does it make you feel better in terms of focus/energy? I'm on Celexa 5mg and it's killing me! Down from 10mg, I wanna get off - it makes me sleepy, confused and it messed up my memory....

I am on both Ritalin & Zoloft, and I've had good results with them (and others). I started feeling less 'disconnected' around the end of a month on both. It took almost three months & several dosage increases to get to where I am. Have been on 60mg of Ritalin/day & 300mg of Zoloft/day for a year or so.

I'm sure you've already heard your experience/results may not be consistent with everyone who takes a certain antidepressant. Hope my experience helps you find what you are looking for.

I'm on Zoloft and Ritalin. It got rid of my Anxiety for the most part, but I have the weirdest side effects that really don't help my case. I'm thinking about stopping it before I get too far into the treatment. The ritalin alone does wonders, but when the Zoloft is added I get weird tingling feelings in one side of my face, more twitching, increased libido, and sleepiness. I cant take the tingling in my face. . .oh no...that has to go. I had other side effects but they went away in two days. Now I have new side effects and it's weird.
