Does a body's tolerance to Zoloft disappear?

Zoloft worked great until it stopped working. I'd like to try it again, but does tolerance remain?

I have chronic depression. I've taken a few different meds in my life to varying effect. Several years ago I started Zoloft and it worked very very well for me, but it stopped working after about a year. My psychiatrist at the time thought I'd built up a tolerance to it and switched me to something different. After a few years of not taking anything (other than Welbutrin for six months during nursing school) things are bad again and I'd like to try Zoloft again. I can't get in to see the state-funded psychiatrist until late next month, and I'd like to see my GP to prescribe something now. Will the tolerance I built up remain or has it disappeared after being off it for several years?
