I'm new to Zoloft (first anti-depressant I've ever taken). I am taking it for Anxiety, Panic and OCD.
I started December 1, 2013. Went from 12.5 - 25 - 50 - 100 Now I have been at 150mg since January 7, 2013. I was feeling much better. Finally was getting out of the house, smiling, driving short distances again and had energy. Now 3 weeks into the 150mg I am feeling sad, down and symptoms of Anxiety.
I have not had a full blown Panic Attack my any means, but why all of a sudden am I feeling like this, when things were finally starting to look up. It's not anywhere where I was with regard to panic and anxiety, but I thought the medicine was supposed to continue to make things better?
Could it be the dose increase, but after 3 weeks? Could the 150mg be too much or not enough? I am so discouraged now that this is happening. Has anyone else experienced this and continued on to success? Is this normal, am I letting it get to me too much?
I just had a very long cry
Hope you are all well :)
