Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Thank you for your question. 25mg of Zoloft is the lowest dosage of Zoloft to be effective. Cutting it in half will not do anything (or there will be no therapeutic value.) After taking it for a week and if you experience headaches or increased anxiety, please contact your doctor.
ok, but should I take zoloft again, or look at some other medication... i've read there are newer ones out now that work better with less side effects. My main problems are severe anxiety and panic attacks.... i'm afraid i'll have same negative reaction to zoloft that I had on lexapro last and now I have pills but cannot even take them because i get severe anxiety i'm going to hav ea reaction to them
also, i'm very depressed (obvs).
also, my fear comes from reading now that some have had their panics attacks worsen with zoloft (originally I took zoloft for depression, i never started having panic attacks until trying too and eventually stopping my zoloft RX)....
thanks for your suggestions. I am now taking the pill and will be attending therapy asap.
