Im a 25 year old Female. I suffer really bad from Panic Attacks. It all started last April when I was buying a house. I ended up in the ER and they ran all these tests, but everything was normal. I then went to my regular family doctor becase I still didnt feel normal. Went there for my normal exam and they put me on 25 mg of Zoloft. I thought the meds worked at first and recently Ive been have really bad attacks. A lot of times they happen at night time or early in the morning. Today I finally called the dr and they want me to take 50 mg for the next two weeks and then the 3 and 4th weeks to take 100 mg. Im really glad that there are other people out there that suffer like me. I always feel this worrying that Im the only one that has this condition. A lot of times I have this fear of dieing especially when I take medicine. I know the dr. says these are normal dosages, but I get to nervous. I feel so miserble its sad. I cant sleep, eat, concentrate on anything more then a little time frame, I can only handle being around people for a short time before I get worked up, and I cry. Its so sad. All I hope is that there is a brighter side to this, and it can get resolved. Oh and I forgot to mention Im going to mexico in a few weeks and Im really hoping I dont have any attacks while on vacation. That is also one of my fears:( Can someone help me out? Or give me some advice to anything.
I am 24 and I take zoloft and adivan due to my panic attacks, stress ect.. I also faint and its.terrifying. scared to.go out in public I stay locked up in my house all day everyday. I was.taking 50 mg zoloft then was raised.to 100 mg in a week. The 100 gave me huge migraines and I slept all day long, didnt eat or drink much of anything. Now I'm back to 50 mg and i.don't feel much diffrence.in how I have been feeling. I walked.outside today and my chest tightened up I was short of breath.
I'm new to this site. I must say I'm thankful I found it as it is very easy to feel completely alone with this disorder. I've been prescribed 50mg of Zoloft for my anxiety. Any suggestions on when to take it? Morning or night? I've been using Paxil for past 10 years on and off. I've determined that to be a mistake. Cycling off and on is not the best way to manage it. Paxil has always given me terrible stomach issues for several weeks and hope that Zoloft will not be as bad. I do plan to stay on the medication for good.
