I am very anxious now.I can't sleep or eat. So I'm back on zoloft but its been 21/2 weeks already and I'm not feeling it kick in yet and I'm nervous that it won't take care of my anxiety. Does anybody have success with zoloft for anxiety and how long does it take to kick in?
Hello robbiejje3. Not certain what your dose is at the moment, guessing at 50 or 100mg. In regards to panic disorders (which its prescribed for) and anxiety in general it often seems to comes up short. Zoloft is what I call a multi-purpose drug and its prescribed in that regard for at least 4 different diagnosis. For severe anxiety, I'd have prescribed another drug. All of the above said, my own personal point of view your question. Hope that it does do the job for you. Good health and wishes,pledge
Ive been on zoloft for over a month now and at first the dose was to high and made my anxiety even worse so the dose was cut back to 50mg daily and i do feel less anxious bt i need xanax or ativan for breakthru anxiety and im trying to retrain my mind to not have all these neg. thoughts which is when i get more anxious... im anxious about getting anxious!
