Report any new or worsening symptoms to your doctor, such as: mood or behavior changes, anxiety, panic attacks, trouble sleeping, or if you feel impulsive, irritable, agitated, hostile, aggressive, restless, hyperactive (mentally or physically), more depressed, or have thoughts about suicide or hurting yourself. Are you taking any other medication(s) that can be having an effect with the first medication?
Make sure that you take Zoloft exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Your doctor may need to occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. If you go to your doctor, they may want to change the medication in some way - but be sure that you don't go off Zoloft without your doctor advising you as it could cause you a worse reaction.
Have you always had these symptoms all your life? When do you think they first started? And did something happen around that time that may have caused those feelings? What for instance did the doctor put you on Zoloft for?
When away with your friend you were playing music and laughing - was it hysterical laughing because you drank yourself silly, or fun laughing? If fun laughing, ask yourself why were you back to being depressed when you returned home? Drinking alcohol can increase certain side effects of Zoloft.
As already mentioned, if you feel that you haven't got a meaning in life - what would give you that meaning? What would you like to do? It is important that you to talk with your doctor and with someone to work through these issues.
