I posted something similar to this almost a year ago about taking Zoloft. Been on Xanax for over 25 years and I've gotten by. In the last year, I've felt progressively worse. I don't feel there are any real world stressors making me feel this way. Anxiety just does what it wants when it wants. I tried Zoloft last spring for two days. Had a panic attack and stopped it. About two days later I felt better and resumed my "take a Xanax when I need to" life. Should I have tried to ride it out? I'm currently having chronic headaches and the Xanax doesn't seem to help like it used to. Scared to do the simplest things although I have a great job and family. I really have nothing to be worried about! Hate feeling this way. Hate taking meds! My doctor prescribed Paxil and wants me to give it a try. As much as I wish I could fix this naturally, I'm at my wit's end and starting to worry about my job. I work for a great company and they're very understanding. Although they don't know what I'm really going through. I would never tell them. Anyway, I need to get better and better fast! I'm missing out on enjoying my kids and my life! Long post, I know. Anyone got any positive advice?
