    Should I try an snri if ssri isn't working?

    I have been taking 200mg of Zoloft for 8 weeks. I also take xanax which helps a little but I still have anxiety and tightness in my chest 24/7. I know I am in a cycle of constant worry about it never going away.

    I am also trying cbt with a therapist.

    Not sure if I should bother switching or just try to cope.

    Hi, first it sucks to have Anxiety, I know been there several times. I am no drug expert but I can tell you my experiences. I was on Prozac and I tried to stick it out , I did for about 5 weeks and switched to Lexapro which helped , but it took a month to feel a little relief on that. You Kinda have to feel your way around on this, 8 weeks seems like it's plenty of time to wait to feel effects of a drug. If you feel it's not helping I would say talk to your psychiatrist and abut trying something else. Just know that you will get better and while having Anxiety blows , everything ends and so will this.
