Hey there, I have been on Zoloft now for 26 days and just upped my dose today to 50mg. I started it because my anxiety was causing me to shake and feel dizzy all the time. I still haven't gotten any relief and I am loosing my faith - were you feeling similar? I can't decide if I should hang in there or not. The Zoloft really helped me one other time in my life durning a short period of anxiety, was hoping for the same result. Oh well, you have given me more hope. Thanks
yes i was having bad anxiety. shaking internally in chest nerve feeling in head. my hands shoke couldn't sit still. was obsessive about my health couldn't sleep at all. this was 6 weeks ago. now much better, still have some anxiety but its not half as bad. th lexapro has helped. now its the side effects that bother me most. it has worked so i don';t want to quit. it. i don't know waht zolof is . so i don't have any info on that,
Im glad to hear that both of you are feeling better since youve been on the lexapro, i remember when i first started about 2 years ago, i remember the headaches and in the back of the head, but they do pass and you will not get them back again, it took me about 6-8 months to feel better, maybe even longer, i remember the first year on medication, i didnt want to do much, go on vacation, wasnt stable feeling enough, so im glad to hear that it hasent taken that long for both of you to start feeling better. good luck and keep the faith, your life will come back to you again.
