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?
If you don't trust your Dr that is going to make your condition much worse. Best to settle that issue first. Either address these concerns with him/her and go forward from there, or, make a change, because relying on the Internet (instead of your physician) for solace will only drive you up one wall and down another, because everyone reacts differently to these meds, and opinions vary immensely, enough to make even mild anxiety soar. Go directly to the source, this will help you best and also ensure future care will be progressive. Make sense?
