Hello all I started taking zoloft 3 Years ago it's been a miracle gave me my life back from crippling anxiety and panic attacks I started on 50mg now I'm on 150mg as of three days ago the issue is today I woke uP with increase anxiety I've heard this can happen for 3 to 4 weeks is this true
I think the 3 to 4 weeks depends on the individual and how their particular body responds, but as far as the increased anxiety I have found that to be true for me as well, also 50 to 150 is a big jump, you may have handled it better had your doctor gradually increased the dose as opposed to tripling the dose all at once. I'm on 50 (should be 75) but I still do 50 and my doctor took me up to 100 and I couldn't deal with the panic attacks so I went back to 50 and she added buspirone daily and alprazolam as a rescue and for now that's keeping my anxiety manageable. Hope this helps. Be well
