Xanax with Zoloft?

Hi, thanks in advance for your suggestions.

I have been on zoloft for last 4 months. After the initial startup side effects I have been feeling better most of the time but I still get those nasty symptoms all of a sudden out of no where at times which includes brain fog, unreality, heavy head, dizziness etc. and it seems like the zoloft dose did not work for today.

Can we take any other medication on as needed basis like xanax or anything else to help with those annoying episodes while taking zoloft.

I need some information so i could talk to my PCP and ask her to prescribe.

I am on zoloft and have taken xanax in the past.  I also have klonopin but I only take it rarely and just for the really bad anxious moments.

Of course run this by your doctor.
