The dose of Zoloft was the lowest therapeutic Zoloft does

Zoloft comes in 25mg, 50mg and 100mg tablets. Usually, 50mg is the minimum therapeutic dose.

Was the 3 day anxiety episode with the first tablet, or had you been taking it for a while?

Then I suggest Celexa (citalopram) beginning on half a 10mg tablet and increasing the dose by 5mg every 2 weeks to 20mg/day. That is a small initial dose which shouldn't cause you too many problems. If you want to play it really safe, start off on only a quarter tablet for a week. You'll probably need a pill cutter to quarter the tablets accurately.

Whatever you go with, my advice is, start low, go slow. It's the only way Ive been able to start a med w/o alot of issues. good luck to u
