Being without your medication can make you feel anxious. You are used to relying on your medicine to help you through. Now that you are stuck without medication, you are probably feeling anxious because of it.
At this point, you may have less of the medication in your system but it is not reduced enough to cause withdrawal symptoms. You still have enough in your system to maintain the drug in your blood. So for the next few days, you should be fine. You may want to contact your doctor (if you can get a hold of them) and/or your pharmacist about tapering your medication. You only have three pills left, but if you can, you may be able to stretch them over two more days and keep some of the Zoloft in your system, enough to hold off withdrawal.
It sounds like your current symptoms are more about your anxiety itself than any medication withdrawal. Try doing some of the things we have talked about before to alleviate your anxiety. Here are some other ideas to help you:
Exercise- most people has some trouble considering this option because the thought of exercise sounds so unappealing, but exercise serves two purposes: one, it helps you get out your physical energy which gets pent up when you experience anxiety. And two, you promote good chemicals in your brain (endorphines) which automatically lifts your mood. You can do anything from take a walk to punching the heck out of a punching bag. Picking an activity that you like helps motivate you.
Guided imagery is also wonderful for reducing anxiety. Imagine yourself floating through a cloud or in water. Picture yourself on a tranquil beach. Listen to the sounds of the ocean, taste the salt air and smell the breeze. By imaging yourself in these situations. your thoughts will help you relax and you will be more centered.
Listening to music is very helpful. It may sound simple, but music has the ability to change your mood, and you can help you calm down. Listen to soothing jazz or classical music for example to help you feel calmer.
Try some of these things to help you express your anxiety and relax more. It will help you stay focused until you feel better.
