I met with the doctors and was prescribed 50mg of Zoloft daily
So, for the last two days I have been taking 50mg in the morning and another 50mg at night. Yesterday morning (my first morning after taking the additional dosage) was marginally better than before. Still woke up anxious, though not as bad as the previous mornings.
Has anyone dealt with the anxious mornings? If so, what helped you get past this?
Before Zoloft, I could sleep in on weekends with no problem. Now once I'm awakened, I'm up for the day (barring a nap). Common?
I noticed that every now and then I get a sweat that will come over me. I noticed it when I started taking the medicine, and now that I've upped the dosage I noticed it again. I am assuming that it is just the medicine working.
I'm still working out the "need" or habit to check my feelings or mood constantly. "How do I feel today?" or "Am I anxious, have I had a good day or a bad day today?" Trying to teach myself to let it go and just enjoy the good moments and the bad ones. I am also getting better at diagnosing my emotions. When I start to feel a little anxiety creeping in I am able to quickly ask myself what emotion I am feeling that is leading me towards anxiety. Am I nervous? Am I excited? Is my adrenaline pumping for some reason? Doing this has helped me to identify a lot of potential triggers for my stresses and then find the solutions.
