The makers of Zoloft probably give a bigger commission than other antidepressants.

Gels don't work as well. Researched it too.
I'm scared of needles. I looked for any alternative.

Ive been through it. About a year ago I got to a point where I couldn't sleep and a good episode of Little House on the Prairie would make me tear up. Turns out my pituitary gland was operating like a drunken traffic cop and I had levels all over the place.

You're right, the gel doesn't absorb as well, but if you're afraid of needles, why in the world wouldn't you use the gel? I've done both and found that the gel does work, I'm just too impatient and would rather just use a needle.

The injections are pretty easy. It's not like its intravenous where you have to find a vein or anything. Just find a thick muscle & inject.

I'm there with you. I'd tear up over anything.

I'm impatient as well. Wife has been giving me the shots so its all good. I play a game on my phone to keep my mind off of it.

Fixing to shoot up now.
B-12 shot I can barely feel. It's a 27 gauge needle. And learned a new trick from a dr on YouTube. After needle is removed, place pressure on the injection site for 1 minute.
This keeps any knots or swelling from forming causing discomfort after the shot.

This will be my 4th round.

Insurance companies dictate it is one of the first you can prescribe as it has been around longer, more studies and is cheaper. Not everyone has side effects, so you have to try it first before they can put you on something newer.
