I am really scared. The prozac didn't work... we started low 5 and slowly increased to 20... I had side effects Jaw clenching, middle of night wake ups, and she lowered to 15 mg. I felt very revved up during the day, anxious. I took myself off the meds completely..have used .25 klonopin twice in last week. Not sure if I should try Zoloft..I am very nervous, but I have suffered from anxiety and panic for a while and really want my life back. I have read success stories, I am not sure if it was my own fear of meds, my therapist or I didn't give it enough time, but the SSRI experience wasn't good. Is zoloft better? I can't bear to have anxiety on a drug I am taking to get rid of anxiety. Also, the sleep disruption scares me . Please help!!
Please help. I tried prozac for anxiety 6 weeks..doc wants to switch to zoloft?

Lindsay All of these drugs in this class list all kinds of side effects when i was still working in pharmacy zoloft was one of the most tolerated medications for anxiety and depression with the fewer side effects,Sadly there is no way to tell what side effects you might get if any i have taken up to 200mg zoloft for 5 years and i have not had side effects,,I would for sure try the zoloft and remember before it really gets in your system it can take 4 to 6 weeks to get the full advantage of the medication,But if they increase the dose it kicks in faster because you are already on that medications..the worst thing about these meds is they list so many side effects and rarely to you get more than one or two if any but i am very lucky..i say give it a chance..it sure got me under control and was not hard to get off of..
