    Zoloft & increased anxiety

    Hi all am new here.

    I am currently suffering clinical depression and anxiety to boot. Just wondering, has anyone experienced a substantial increase in anxiety when taking zoloft? I have been on 100mg for about 2 1/2 weeks.

    I have to admit that due to the anxiety I have never felt so wreched and trying to motivate myself is near immposible! I am also experiencing a huge amount of twitching mucels in my legs (started before zoloft) which also feel incredibly weak. Has anyone eles experienced this due to depression and anxiety?

    Thank you and look forward to any help.

    Take care all.

    Did you start at 100mg?

    If so that is too high in my opinion to start.

    I started at 25mg for a week and then to 50mg.

    I did have a little increase in anxiety for 2 weeks and then I was better.

    What dose did you start at?
