I stated taking the generic for Zoloft and trazodone for anxiety about two weeks ago and I noticed that I recently wake up with the worst anxiety sometimes. I did a guided meditation last night and this morning and I woke up a couple of hours after both with really bad anxiety and I'm not sure if the meditation caused it or if the medicine's not working. Because I woke up two days ago with bad anxiety also. How would I know if the meds aren't working? Because last night when I did the guided meditation I fell asleep without taking my trazodone and woke up at like 1AM with anxiety but I've taken the trazodone that late before without anxiety. I'm not sure if its the meds or not. My therapist said anxiety spikes are normal but this often?
Are my meds working?

Also, it almost feels like I have a fever. But I've checked a bunch of times and I don't. I have almost like this buzzing anxiety throughout my entire body.
Hi Mmk, I have also severe anxiety & take Xanax during the day; also nightmares since I was a child, almost like night terrors) & take seraquel at night. Seraquel helps me sleep but B4 sleep when I take it I get anxiety after about 15 minutes.
I've taken Lamactal for URs during the day, nuts its spoof stabilitzer & used foru seizures but had never helped w anxiety, sleep or panic attacks. I've taken trazadone for sleep & it worked but I felt drowdy on morning... Then the waking hot hot hot. (I have also ckd my temp sev times!).
Talk w UR phych ASAP. I talked mine Wed & she changed my night meds :( but I'll give it a chance!
Best of luck'
You are probably experiencing some of the starting up side effects especially since starting two at one time. Generally, give antidepressants a month to be at their therapeutic level. If the side effects become too unbearable, be sure to contact the doctor. If not already, consult a psychiatrist when taking these kinds of medications.
