When will Zoloft work?
I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. Just to try to understand the situation a little better, what medication did you react to, and what was your reaction? What was the doctor's rationale behind instructing you to stop the Zoloft? Any other pertinent medical history, other medications or medical conditions, and any drug/alcohol use/abuse?
It COULD be that with stopping the Zoloft abruptly, then restarting it, that you're having a hard time tolerating it. That's not terribly uncommon to see. Sometimes that improves with time, and others people find it more logical to try a different medication. Besides the symptoms you mention above, are you having any others? Your anxiety is worse in the morning? Would you say you just have a constant level of anxiety, or are you having panic attacks?
You had asked on your other thread about increasing your dose to 125mg. Definitely don't do anything without talking to your doctor first. I would think that going into your 8th week, you should be seeing SOME kind of improvement. This may just be one of those things that is going to take some time, and possibly some adjustments to your medication regimen.
Also, has anything major happened to you very recently? Any losses? Big life changes? I'm just wondering if perhaps what you're dealing with is an appropriate reaction to a real life stressor?
I know it's tough when you're experiencing debilitating levels of anxiety, just TRY to hang in there, and keep in close contact with your doctor. Try as hard as you can to maintain your normal life routine, keep yourself as busy and distracted as possible. The more we sit and ruminate about how we feel, the worse we will feel.
