Emotionally blank, apathetic

I've been taking zoloft for two weeks now. I've had some awful side effects which are finally starting to go away and I haven't cried or had a panic attack in several days but I just feel weird. I still overthink a lot but my body doesn't physically react too much, but my mind kind of feels like it's going blank. It's like I had all these crazy thoughts and emotions all over the place before and now that they're gone theres a huge void in myself. Obviously I dont want the anxiety and depression back but I feel emotionally disconnected, apathetic, indifferent, and just plain bored. I'm just concerned about this and would like to hear someones experience or opinions.

I have always been terrified of taking meds for this illness, I'm scared of addiction and the way it would make me feel, such as emotionless, that seems more painful. I say look up "natural" ways to help with depression and you will come up with a lot trust me

Antidepressants take off the top and bottom of emotions. That's where the void comes from. It does take time to see if it will help. If nothing changes in a few weeks I would talk to the doc.
