My meds hisory...

6 months of up to 1.5 mg xanax per day

Switched to .5 klonopin twice per day and started lexapro.

Took lexapro for 10 weeks and never felt anxiety relief, had really bad headaches... Did wean to only .5mg klonopin daily during that time.

Now I've been on 50mg zoloft for 8 weeks tomorrow.  I went to 62.5 mg yesterday.  I'm absolutely feeling terrible today.  I went to work this morning and just have so much anxiety it's terrible.  I have to work until 8 tonight so I'm probably making it worse thinking about the long hours. 

Weeks 5-7 on zoloft were pretty good.  Week 8 ugg, back in the abyss...  I would like to think since it helped for a little while it will start helping again... 

I'm just so ready to throw in the towel on this.  One can only live in so much pain for so long...

My body has been in high anxiety mode for 10 months.  I had 2 weeks.  Weeks 5-7 that were great with little to no anxiety.  Week 8 I'm back like the previous 10 months.  Not as bad as when it all started for sure, but waking with dry heaves and then all day dread and anxiety.

I think your med dose needs to be raised.
