Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
Zoloft is a good choice for anxiety disorder
There are other choices, like buspirone
What would be the difference between the two? I was on 15 MG a day Zolof, is this a very light dose? I've heard people taking 25MG a day at the lowest but never 15 MG. Mostly 50MG when I looked around at Google. I'm wondering if you could answer these questions and some more of the ones in the original question I sent last night. So far you've been helpful but very vague, no offense!
They are different drugs
Zolfot is a drug in a class called SSRI's, which are the best drugs to treat anxiety
Buspirone is used when you cannot tolerate SSRI's
15mg is very low, the lowest does I would start with is 25mg
Why do you think he would go with 15 MG instead of the normal low dose of 25mg?
Unfortunately, I cannot answer that, I have never heard of a physician prescribing 15mg
Hmm I see, could you explain how Zolfot helps people with Anxiety, Anxiousness?
It is a serotonin reuptake inhibitor, serotonin is related to anxiety and moods
Are you there?
So in short, its helping balance the chemical in my head.
So I don't have anxious, and depressing moods
Yes, that is correct
My family has a big history of anxiety. Good chance its through the genes.
But the one question I can't figure out. Is why did it all of a sudden hit me at 25.
After being a huge social butterfly for years on end.
It can occur at any age
Triggered by a life event that was hard to get through perhaps?
Life events are very common triggers, so yes, that is possible
I appreciate you answering all these questions.
I find when I go to a doctors office, I get alittle anxiety and can't get all of it out.
I'm way better at writing my words.
I am happy I can help
My last question for you
Do you think I should continue to try and fight it without Zoloft or go back to it to live normal again?
If your symptoms are bothering you you should go back on zoloft
Well that part is for certain.
I thought of one more thing.
Long term use or any use of Zoloft can it have any bad effect on someone?
Or is it pretty safe.
No, it is very safe
If one were to have kids someday, is there any chance it could spin off anything onto them?
No, it would not
Sorry I got disconnected
I thought of a couple more quick questions, I plan on giving you the best rating no worries!
Promise this is the last 2
Should I ask for 25 MG when I go back or stay with 15?
And should I worry about having a few drinks while on Zoloft? I've heard mixed reactions.
You should ask for 25mg
You do not have to worry about alcohol
You've been very helpful
I'll leave excellent feedback. Have a great weekend!
You're quite welcome
