I've suffered anxiety before but it was more panic attacks this time it's like I'm going to lose control but no panic?
So I admitted myself to a mother baby unit for help
They have started me on Zoloft only half a tablet a day but I'm really scared of the side affects that I've read on the internet. And what if Zoloft doesn't work I have a two year old to go back home to and the feeling of overwhelming and losing control scares me
I guess my main question is will Zoloft work will it stop my thoughts from constantly worrying
Sorry you're having a hard time right now. Zoloft has helped me in the past. Other members of my family have used it before. It worked for them also. If that's what you're doctor put you on then stay on it a little longer. The side effects aren't that bad. Most medicines has a lot of side effects that scares the crap out of people. Talk to your doctor about it if you still feel that way. As far as the worrying goes, Honey you're a mom you'll always worry. Zoloft is real good. It will work. I'm also on an antidepressant and I have good and bad days. It's hard but just hang in there.
I too had sever PND. The constant worrying was terrible After arriving in the ER I was sent to a wonderful psychiatrist who prescribed me Mirtazapine to help sleep and increase my appetite and Lexapro 10 mg. After about a month I was back to my old self. If Zoloft does not work, you can always try something else, but yo need to try first and give it some time. You are no alone in this. There are a lot of PND support groups out there. Google it and see if there is one in your area. Try looking up POEM. That is the name of the group where I live.
