Zoloft

My doctor moved my zoloft from 50 mg to 100 mg. My anxiety was a little better, but not much. I am also on a long acting Xanax and Ambien for sleep ( I was waking up in panic), does anyone else take this many meds to function? And has anyone else tried 100 mg of Zoloft? Thanks
Michele

Re: Zoloft

hi Michele, My name is Lainey & I have been on & off zoloft now going on my fourth time. Don't ask why I ever came off there is no rational explanation. I have always been on 50mgs & that seems to have done the trick for me although I am sure my Dr would have liked me to up the dose to get "faster results" It always takes at least 4 weeks for me to find relief.
How long have you been on zoloft? I did take Ambien & xanax each time I have gone back on the zoloft with eventually being able to get away without them once the zoloft kicked in.
I am on week 2 of 50mgs this time & I am taking klonopin...for me its been a much smoother "ride" The xanax was quick acting but I would need it more often. I take 1 .5 mg klonopin at night & it helps me sleep (not great because in the beginnign the zoloft makes insomnia worse) & I had taken a 1/2 klonopin in the morning but I found yesterday that I did alright without the 1/2 so I am trying to do it again today.
Michele I am a born again christian who relys heavily on my faith...I stay in prayer & believeing God is with me through this & he has gotten me through three other times & I HAVE to believe He will do it again. If you would like I could add you to my prayer list.
God Bless, Lainey

Re: Zoloft

Yes, please keep me in your prayers. I have had hands layed on me, but I still suffer from anxiety. I have been on Zoloft for about 6 months, I just took the 100 mg this morning and I can already tell I am much more relaxed. I have had a stressfull morning, and had to take pain meds due to a root canal. So it has been rough. Hopefully this will work. Thanks so much.
Michele
