I have been on Xanax for over 20 years now and my anxiety is worse than ever. I can't even drive anymore. I just spent a lot of money on getting legal marijuana and I can't handle the high. I just want to feel normal again. I have been prescribed Zoloft twice and have yet to take it because I can't handle my anxiety getting any worse, even if it is for only for 2 or 3 weeks. Someone please help me.
Someone please convince me to start my Zoloft?

My advice is to try liquid Zoloft. That’s what I did. You can start out with a low a dose as you can handle to start out. You can decide how your body will react to an increase along with your doctor s input. Of course you’ll have to wait longer for results if dose increase is smaller.
Zoloft is an excellent choice for anxiety disorders. You just have to give it time to work. It is not fast acting as Xanax. You may need to wait at least 6-8 weeks before start seeing changes. During the few days on Zoloft, you may experience an increase anxiety/depression but it generally resolve quickly within a few days to a week. If the anxiety then become bothersome. You can ask your doctor or pharmacist for an OTC medication to help lessen the symptoms until Zoloft symptoms subside. This is much information I can provide, because I have never taken Zoloft before but I do hope someone here will share their thoughts about Zoloft.
