I have always been a very happy and go-lucky guy up until about 1.5 years ago. I had my first panic attack and it has caused me to have extreme anxiety and additional panic attacks. My doctor put me on a low dosage of citalopram and after only one day on the drug I had terrible anxiety and felt like I experienced every single side effect listed on the drug and couldn't handle it.
I was now prescribed Zoloft 25mg 5 months ago and have been terrified to start taking it. I'm afraid I will have the same affects again. I am very health conscious and every time I have a pain I always think of the worse and become more anxious.
What do I do to overcome this fear?
