    What is the normal dosage of Zoloft for anxiety and panic disorder?

    Hi guys, i'm wondering what the normal dosage of Zoloft is for anxiety and panic disorder. At the moment I am taking 37.5 mg, and am scheduled to go to 50 mg tonight. My problem is that I still get really bad anxiety to the point that it's affecting my job, I drive school bus and it seems that every time I get in the bus and start driving I get an attack. I started at 12.5 for 2 weeks and then went to 25 for 2 weeks and i'm at 37.5 right now. I'm going to increase the dosage tonight to 50 mg. But i'm wondering if this is enough, or should it be a higher dosage? Any input would be greatly appreciated. I feel like it's not even working this time around. (I was on 50 mg twice before) Should I go with the 50 mg for a while to see if it works? I know it takes a few weeks before you feel the full effect but this is aweful!

    I don't know what the normal dose is but the highest dose that you can be on is 200mg. I was on 150mg for social anxiety at one point.

    most doctors say 50mg for panic and anxiety.=)
    its the theraputic dose.
    can always go higher if you need to though to 200mg.
