Hi Everyone,
Recently had a crisis situation where I had been tried on numerous sleeping pills unsuccessfully and with terrible anxiety and depression. Now on 50 mg of zoloft and 100 mg of seroquel together for 3 days. I seem to be able to feel when the depression begins to ease up already but I am experiencing terrible panic and heightened anxiety in its place. My anxiety focuses a lot on death and age as triggers but just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience of increased anxiety? Will it eventually go away? Also not sure if zoloft will help with my specific fear and anxiety so has anyone else used it successfully for a similar purpose?

It takes time, but you should be able to call your Dr. hotline and they will help you. Probably give you something like Clonzepam, like Xanax but not as addictive. Otherwise, you will probably not sleep well and continue to feel like you're presently.

Hello, Mokey! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems that you're having.

It can be normal for some people to experience worsening symptoms for the first 3 weeks, or so, after starting such a medication. Right around 21 days, things should start to improve and the effects should lessen in severity.

You may also experience dry mouth, headache and weight gain.

And yes, it has successfully helped many people with problems similar to yours.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I was on zoloft for a year really helped me, did not feel like I was on medication. BUT I did start to lose my hair, so had to go off of it. I was 1 in 1000 that it may happen too.
