Patient : I'm 24 and have been on Zoloft 100 mg daily sence I was 16, so for 8 years now, I've gone down dosage to 50 mg but always seem to need to go up again, for years I smoked ALOT of majawana daily also, i haven't for about a year now, I've also just had very bad outbreaks starting this year of pompholyx eczema on my hands and can't seem to place what the cause is other than years of not eating proply, sence I was about 16 as well I've had dermatitis, just very sensitive skin but nothing like this, I've taken steroids which work well to get rid of it but as soon as I stop it comes back. My two questions are should I change anti depressants ?? I have just gone though a break up and am now a singel mother of my 8 month old and no its expected to be sad, but I just feel down most of the time, always tired, could cry at anytime ect... Could I be amune to them? Did smoking dope and taking them change them?? And could they be causing my pompholyx eczema ? Because I've read that someone's anti depressants caused it?
