I was prescribed Zoloft after having horrible side effects on lexapro. I am on 25 mg of Zoloft for anxiety and panic attacks, and am supposed to increase to 50 after 4 to 6 days. It is day 3 and I feel awful. I'm anxious and deppressed and cannot stop crying. I don't know what to do.
Hang in there. It may take upwards of a couple weeks to fully adjust to this medication. What you explain is not unusual. You should gradually feel better over the next week. If you feel you are getting worse to the point of being unbearable, let the doctor know. Otherwise, try to give it a good try before making a decision. It will take upwards of a month or so to reach peak effectiveness.
