... me on Seroquel 12.5mg, and upped my Zoloft from 50 to 200mg. Also prescribed Ativan 1mg TID. After a few days, I developed a low grade fever and sore throat, which apparently can happen with seroquel. Doc stopped the seroquel for a week, but the fever persisted. She then dropped the Zoloft to 150mg for a week. When the fever still persisted, I had blood work done and it turns out I just had a random virus and the symptoms had nothing to do with any of my meds. Doc put me back on the seroquel, but kept the Zoloft at 150mg. Throughout the entire time, I have had horrible anxiety. The depression is much better, but the anxiety is nearly constant. Yesterday, the doc decided to discontinue the seroquel again and in a few days, I'm supposed to go back to 200mg of Zoloft with the Ativan. Does anyone think this will help? Please respond if you have input... I'm so ready to have my life back and if I could just lose this constant anxiety, I think I'd be okay!!!
Yes, it could help. I know how frustrating it is to go from one med then to another and feel no better or worse etc.. But, at least your depression is better
I believe it's easier to get rid of anxiety than depression. So, you'll be on your way to feelin great in no time!. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
I too went through the same with the zoloft, i know that it can be frustrating but hang in there. i got real sick and weak which made me more depressed, i didnt want to get out of bed. I blamed zoloft when in actuallity i had a virus. My depression is also much better and i also agree that anxiety is better than depression although i dont wish either of them on nobody.
