Setbacks happen, unfortunately. Discuss this with your doctor if it persists. Are you still on 100mg Zoloft? If so, this is still a low dose.

So the dr switched my meds to "Sertraline" or Zoloft, I'm optimistic that this will do better, I will say I haven't had much anxiety with the Luvox but the other issues I have still lingered and gotten worse lately but as far as anxiety goes Luvox worked well for me, she said she didn't care for all the interactions in Luvox which I understand.

Hey Insights, had a few questions, I haven't been on here in a long time due to me feeling much better, for months I've been nearly normal a bad day here or there, about two weeks ago I didn't take my med (Zoloft) for about three or four days due to a refill issue but I've been back since and 100mg every night but for a week or so I've felt pretty anxious lots of my old symptoms have been back.. I'm wondering it's from that stoppage in meds or what.. Idk if I should up it to 150mg or wait it out. What do u think?

Probably mostly from stopping Zoloft for a few days, and maybe also some from having unleashed the anxiety monster which is now reluctant to get back into its cage, i.e. partly psychological.

I'd give it another week. The problem with increasing the dose is that it is itself likely to increase your anxiety levels for a while. You may yet have to up the dose, but don't rush into it and only increase it by 25mg at a time.

Appreciate the reply, I'll keep it at 100MG. Give it some time to wear off

azmatt, are you successfully off of ativan or other benzos?  Were you able to control it completely with zoloft alone?
