I had bypass surgery became very depressed and anxiety attacks Dr. Put me on Zoloft 25 mg going into 6th day no more crying anxiety seems to be a little more is this normal with zoloft.
I am sorry that you became depressed and had anxiety attacks after your surgery :(
Antidepressants can be known for increasing anxiety a bit before helping it. It can take 4-8 weeks for the med to reach a therapeutic level. It can sometimes be sooner, but the anxiety should lessen in the next couple of weeks, just have to be patient. You should be feeling better soon :)
