Hi Was wondering if someone can help me with a question. Im on day 15 of zoloft following 5 weeks of citalopram .Im also on 2mg of diazepam 3 times daily but have not been taking that many but have been taking at least 2 a day untill yesterday where i didnt take any Diazepam at all and had the best day so far since starting medication. Today tho i have been a little edgy and a bit of breakthrough anxiety and was wondering if its normal and also if it could be due to not taking any Diazepam for over 30 hours? Im just a little worried that its the Diazepam making me better and not the zoloft but i never had a single diazepam yesterday and only took 2mg today thats my dose by the way 2mgs 3 times daily but if yesterday was my best day so far and i never touched a Diazepam do you think the zoloft is starting to do its job? Also as i went straight onto zoloft following 4 and a half weeks of citalopram should i be feeling the full theraputic affect of the zoloft yet im 15 days in or is there still room for improvement? I only ask this as is it like starting again waiting for meds to fully kick in or should they kick in quicker due to the 4 weeks on Cit . xxxxxx
Hi, there is still room for improvement yes. The effects of the Zoloft will kick in quicker because of the length of time you were taking the Citalopram. I'm sure that the reason that you are feeling a bit edgy is due to the lack of Diazepam. You can suffer withdrawal symptoms when stopping Diazepam, so take it slow, and if you feel you need to take a dose that's OK.
