Avatar n tn It can help with depression and generalized anxiety disorder. Have you looked it up on the internet. It could give you some good advice. I know for me it helped with both depression and anxiety and since going off it I realize it also helped me with anger issues. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Zoloft affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression, panic, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Zoloft is used to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). Zoloft can cause side effect which include, trouble sleeping, panic attacks and anxiety. The Klonopin may help, depending on the dosage and the scheduling.
Avatar f tn When I first was diagnosed I was diagnosed with depression so they put on on an SSRI and that was that. What was really going on was that I was suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder with a touch of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. They both come with some depression but the main component is the anxiety not the depression.

Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder several years ago. I was first started on Paxil and had very few problems except for weight gain and night sweats. I was later switched to Prozac with the same side effects. I now take Zoloft and I still have the night sweats. I am wondering if night sweats are a common side effect of these medications and what can be done about it.
Avatar n tn I take topamax for Seizures and my doctor wants to put me on Zoloft for my Anxiety and I have post traumatic stress disorder I am very concerned with the weight gain. I was on Lexapro and it worked for me but I gained 35 lbs. on it so I went off of it. Now all my symptoms have returned but I've lost all the weight that I gained..
Avatar f tn I had tried to decrease the zoloft a couple of months ago and had severe diziness and anxiety was back. I am so scared to increase to decrease the anxiety I'm having. Does anyone suggest a great anxiety medication that weening off of zoloft wont make me crazy! This whold anxiety thing is so hard to deal with.
Avatar f tn That is classical anxiety thinking where you try analyzing the symptoms for clues to a disorder - anxiety does that to you. However, if you haven't had your heart checked out it is not possible for anyone to know for sure if you have a problem - I am in no position to diagnose or advise you on that subject. Did you check some other posters subjects to notice how common "heart" problems are with anxiety sufferers?

She is 18, a competitive long distance runner and puts a lot of stress on herself to preform well, which she does. today the doctor prescribed Zolft.

5365627 tn?1369077616 I just started taking zoloft today for severe depression and anxiety i was having. I take 50 mg. Im 36 weeks and i just want to know if it has ever helped anyone else with their issues how much and is your baby ok if you were pregnant at the time?
Avatar f tn Yes, dizziness is one of the possible side effects, but as you already mentioned, it is nearly impossible to determine what the culprit is...could be something else causing that (your illness, etc). The good news is, any side effects of Zoloft will typically start to resolve after about 2 weeks (give or take, varies per person). The key to really being able to fairly determine the success of these kinds of meds is sticking it out.
Avatar n tn I am a thirty six year old female who has had panic/anxiety disorder for many years. I also suffer from PAC/PVC. I have been put on Zoloft (could not tolerate paxil, or effexor) and was wondering about side effects. The first week I was so nauseas I thought i was going to have to stop taking it, but it is a little better now, except if I have, say, 6 beers on friday night I wake up Saturday morning SICK. Not hang over, sick-I feel horrible! Why? What is the interaction?
4173517 tn?1350602301 I am on depakote 500mg twice a day and respidal 4mg at night and 50mg of zoloft and so far I havent had any side affects but its only been a week my side affects show up on weeks 3 & 4 so hopefully I dont but fingers are crossed
Avatar n tn I'm 17 years old, and have been on zoloft since May 2006 for anxiety, a panic disorder [severe panic attacks] and social anxiety [which caused most of the panic attacks] I have not have a panic attack since October 2006, and decided recently, after much thought and talking to my doctor, to go off zoloft. Starting the first day of August, I took a half dose every day for ten days. Now I am taking a half dose every second day for twenty days, and then going off completely.
Avatar n tn If its depression thats being treated, he will probably be fine with it. However, Wellbutrin was not mainly indicated for the treatment of Anxiety/Panic disorder, thought it still does help subside it. Talk to your doc about this. And if your husband hasn't yet tried talk theropy, nows a good time. Finding the core(s) of the problem, and soon a solution is a more effective weapon against anxiety and depression.
Avatar m tn While you're adjusting to the Zoloft and waiting for it to start helping to control the anxiety symptoms, the Klonopin will be helpful in controlling the anxiety. Take it as prescribed, and while you're adjusting to the Zoloft, if the side effects are becoming a bit much, take that 4th dose as your p-doc advised. Your doc will help you taper off the Klonopin once the Zoloft starts (hopefully) doing its thing for you.
Avatar n tn The only difference between my twin and me is the zoloft. Its too bad because the zoloft works well for my anxiety and panic but I will try to find a different medication now. I was on Celexa in the past and didn't notice any weight gain on that.
Avatar n tn I have been living with anxiety disorder for a year now and the hate the feeling its give me. I was wondering is there any cure, even though it is hereditary. Cause i really want it ti go away, it it making afraid of doing the things i'm use to doing.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with an Anxiety Disorder. I have been on four different medications; the first one was Lexapro, which made me extremely tired, then Cymbalta which made me extremely paranoid, a generic version of Zoloft, I can't remember the name which I gained 15 to 20 pounds before I realized it was the medicine, and the latest one is fluoxetine(? generic Prozac) which doesn't appear to be helping, I'm still anxious (crabby) so I went off that one as well.
Avatar f tn Also, it is extremely important to remember there is no 'magic pill' to 'cure' you of your anxiety. I am a big proponent of medications like Zoloft as long as they are combined with talk therapy...only by learning about this pattern of thinking and gaining long term knowledge, will you gain long term relief from this in my opinion....keep us posted!
2198057 tn?1338534805 My panic returned with a vengeance within 6 months. Zoloft is actually the most prescribed SSRI for anxiety disorders, specifically panic disorder, and it has a great success rate. You are always going to hear horror stories with any med. As with any med, people will have varying experiences. Your best bet is to go into this with an open mind and not any preconceived notions based on other people's stories. Allow yourself to have your OWN unique experience.

Avatar f tn Hello all. I have Borderline Personality Disorder, and General Anxiety Disorder. My doctor has put me on Zoloft 100mg and Xanax 3mg a day (been taking zoloft for about 6 months now, and xanax same amount of time). My panic attacks come out of nowhere still, and seem to be getting worse if I don't take any xanax in the morning? Isn't zoloft supposed to help? I know I need to talk to my doctor but every time I do he prescribes a higher dose of Xanax! Help?

I am currently taking 150 mg. of Zoloft daily, along with 1/2 of a .5 Klonopin tablet at night and 1/2 of a 1mg. tablet of Ativan in the morning. I wake up shaking, anxious and crying every morning. The trembling, shivers, and anxiety last for about 6 hrs. The crying usually stops after an hour or two. By late afternoon and evening I feel much better. I take the Zoloft in the late morning.
