Over time , some patients could develop resistance to their antidepressant medication .
In your case , in which you have been taking Zoloft for one year ,this is probably what happened .
Like your body became more resistant , it was necessary to increase the dose .
That your symptoms became more evident after having the flu ,it is more coincidental .
However , when you have the flu or other infection, your immune system becomes weakened . And there is a correlation between a weakened immune system and depression . So if your body was already developing resistance , what the flu basically did was precipitated the development of the symptoms and symptoms that you were naturally going to develop ,appear even faster .
