    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    hi! sorry if this is too late i just made an account so i could reply to you. i don't know if it will be of much help, but i have been on zoloft since i was 19 (i am 21 now) and it really did help me. i tried many medicines before and it was very effective. everyone reacts differently but it has helped me so much, it's worth a try! i was/ still can be very depressed and it helped me sleep at night, wake up early, and be more talkative. i hope this helps!
