Anyone have experience with drinking on Zoloft?

It would be ideal to cut out alcohol for awhile but not the easiest being young in a new city.

No issues for me

nbd

No need to quit alcohol on SSRIs. I’ve been on two and I have never cut drinking. SSRIs are metabolized in the liver of course so I imagine excessive drinking might still be more of a strain.

I’m traveling again for work and while it took me a while to get back into it, I’m almost as efficient as I was pre-Covid. My issue is that when I get home, I am exhausted. It feels like it takes me a day to recover from any travel that is more than an overnight trip. I know travel disrupts sleep and I eat heavier food when I’m on the road, so I’m watching that, but any other tips to not come home feeling like a shell? Or how to bounce back faster?

Is anyone on a low dose of Adderall or a similar stimulant, and do you find it helpful/effective?

When I was diagnosed (at 20 yo) I started on Adderall XR and my psychiatrist essentially took a “keep upping the dose until you feel side effects” approach, even though I still saw some benefits at a lower dose. I’m currently unmedicated and am somewhat hesitant to restart, but feel I could see some benefit and better stability with the help of medication.

Today marks two weeks from Milbank. DPW, you had two full weeks, which generally translates to roughly at the least 100 billable hours of any given associate’s time.
