I have been on anti-depressents on and off for 20 years now, a month ago I was put on zoloft to help with the anger and nerviousness... the sidde effects were aweful, I became more anxious more angry and very hostile, and was in the restroom over 10 times a day.. my dr. said BuSpar will be better. I do not feel depressed. my hands sweat constantly,my stomach feels like i am on a rollercoaster most of the time, and I can not concentrate... I do not know what is going on with me... I do not want to go to the grocery store, I dont even want to go outside... I just want everything in order!!! I am constantly counting things, my steps I take, how may time I open or close a door. I can not find a dr that can put this all together. I do not have insurance so I pay 60$ everytime I see a dr. I have had the shingles (I think from all the stress) for 3 months. the put me on nurontin for the pain. I am verry nervious to take the BuSpar... I really cant handle the same side effects as the zoloft... I really need help... any suggestions???
Hello gypsyatheart. Well, you're not doing well on the Zoloft. You've been on antidepressants for 20 years. You know its a hit and miss. If you decide not to take the Buspar, you'll be feeling more of the same. I believe you're feeling the way you are because of withdrawls, your no longer taking Zoloft. I suggest you take the Buspar, as perscribed by your doctor. Hopefully, it will help with your anxiety and stress levels. As to your diagnosis, I'm not qualified to give a opinion on. regards, pledge
