Some antidepressants are better than others at helping with anxiety, and each person is different. I know Zoloft can help with anxiety, but when I took it several years ago, it did nothing for that for me. I currently take Prozac, which isn't typically one of the chosen options for people with anxiety, but it has been working well in this regard. I'd see how this new medication affects things, and if, in a few weeks, you're not seeing as much improvement, you could talk to your doctor about maybe trying a different medication altogether. Good luck!
