I have been panic free for 8 months (knock on wood) I did CBT, really good, as for the zoloft, I have open journal here and I talk about it, but basically my first round with Panic attacks, I would not take zoloft
(waited 2 yrs) then finally took it, zoloft
gave me my life back and helped me to get off xanax (real easy). but then this go around, I tried zoloft and it did the same things as you say it did to you, so I said, NO and stopped at day 5 or 6 also.
CBT is great!
