Discussions that mention zoloft

Alternative Medicine board

Hello. I suffer from social anxiety and my worst symptom is blushing. I have been taking zoloft for about 2 years now, and would love to discontinue taking it. The zoloft helps but only somewhat, not 100%. I read on here that fish oil, omega joy helps, but does it also help significantly with the social anxiety? I need suggestions, anything. I'm desperate. Thanks.
My younger sister took Zoloft for social anxiety and told me that it did indeed work, but that perhaps she needed her medication monitored better and that she didn't feel she was "taking enough." I also know she was given a very small dose of Xanax, but she didn't follow through with that, either. LittleMiracle, I am a strong believer that no one need suffer. Please talk to your doc and be as honest with him/her as you are on the boards. There's absolutely nothing to be ashamed of and everything to gain by seeking help.
