Zoloft & Ativan Question 35 wks pregnant (please read)
Congratulations on your baby, and I'm sorry you're struggling with this right now.
I've never had a baby, but here's a few things I can tell you:
- hormones can impact anxiety. I have experienced an increase in symptoms sometimes when I'm PMSing and getting ready to start my period.
- starting Zoloft: a side effect for some results in increased anxiety. It stinks, but it does pass! I've been on Zoloft for almost a year now, and have had a great deal of success.
Are you seeing a counselor or therapist? I would highly recommend it! In the meantime, I have found journaling to be very therapeutic. Just pound out anything and everything you're thinking & feeling. Make sure you're taking good care of yourself - rest, good nutrition, lots of water, all these help. If your ob/gyn has cleared you to do so, gentle exercise is great, too.
Distraction is my best weapon for anxiety. When you find yourself tempted to start over analyzing, get up and do something. Turn on some music, go walk, call someone and talk it out, turn on a fave TV show. And stay off Dr. Google!!!!
Above all, make sure your ob/gyn is aware of what you're experiencing. He or she can speak from a medical professional perspective
