Anxiety board


I don't know if it fits here but it'll throw it in. I have OCD. The negative thoughts and recently went on Zoloft. I think it made it worse I was soooo anxious and ended up with panic attacks. Ive been off of it for 4 days and the panic attacks have stopped but i still have butterflies in my stomach and im my stomach and im nervous the panic is going to flare up again. Im scared there's something wrong with me and Im crazy.

I saw my psychiatrist yesterday and she put me back on prozac. I never had a reaction to it like I did the zoloft when I was on the prozac last year but Im still nervous.

Ive been really depressed lately too...


anyone have similar feelings
I have OCD and panic disorder. I tried Zoloft years ago, and for me it was an awful choice! I know it works quite well for some people, but I was not one of them! I quickly came off of it and went onto Prozac. I was very nervous at first, but as time went on, it passed. The doctor told me that a side effect of initially starting Prozac is anxiety, which is why they start you very low. I think I started on 10mg and increased my dosage VERY slowly. It takes a couple of weeks for the Prozac to really do its job so try to be patient as you ride out the storm.
Hope this helps,
