I too am getting ready to start taking zoloft at a very low dose. I just stopped taking prozac because of the side effects. I'm not looking forward to going through the side effect waiting period again, but I really want to find something that helps.
I also get very anxious about many things and I don't usually know the cause.
I will be looking forward to an update from you to see if the side effects lesson and you get some relief. I believe it can take up to 4 to 6 weeks for the med to reach full strength. For some maybe less time.
Wishing you the best!
