In my experience with it, I actually prefer it. It can take a little while to kick in just like other SSRIs; it took around a month or so for me. Initially it raised my anxiety a little bit, partly because I was nervous about taking it, but in the long run I believe it helped me immensly when it was combined with talk therapy. Let me know how it goes.
last time I was on Zoloft it saved my life, now with the new panic attacks coming have been considering zoloft again. as for Alcohol. I would say NO, I look at it this was if we have a problem and go to hospital we don;t ask for a beer or a mixed drink, so why even consider alcohol at this time, while we work on ourselves.
hi im glad zoloft helped you,maybe you should consider using it again as for the alcohol the only reason i mentioned it is i enjoy going out to have a beer as it gets me back into a sense of normality i love going out with my hubby and friends it helps me get away from my anxiety for a while.
