... disorder? And also I have all day everyday pain because of the stress and anxiety. I was having panic attacks almost every day, even when I thought I was happy. My face felt like it was caving in. My balance was off I felt faint, and like my feet weren't hitting the ground. Like I was floating, feeling nervous and jumpy every time someone called my name. My body felt like it was on fire from the inside. I was having chest pains. My neck felt choked and twisted. Very weak feeling and tired all the time. I didn't feel like I was apart of this world. My doctor put me in Xanax. I just started taking the Xanax 1 week ago along with the Zoloft. And the Xanax seems to be helping me with severe anxiety and my stress body pain. So my question is has anyway ever taken the 2 Meds together. But stopped the Zoloft? If so what happened. I'm asking because I'm nervous. Cause I've been on Zoloft for 7 years now. And it stopped working like it use too. So my doctor gave me Xanax also. And I'm wondering if the Xanax is doing it on its own and without the help of Zoloft. Or if I should continue to take the Zoloft also. Can someone help, I'm nervous.
Were you on any medication before Zoloft?
Or was it 7 years ago that the panic, anxiety and pain started?
Many Drs prescribe SSRI drugs ( antidepressants) with benzodiazepines and most people do good on them both! Don't stop taking Zoloft abruptly! Your Dr will taper you off or change it. Xanax is very effective for anxiety! Don't play Dr! Discuss all your problems with your Health Care provider! There are better anti- depressants now than before!
