Hi Kitt,

I ended up taking the rest of the week off of work so that I can get into the doctor and try to get a handle on this anxiety.  My daughter (not the one causing me stress) has recently started taking Zoloft to help with her anxiety and said it has been very helpful to her.  Unfortunately though my PCP is on vacation until the 14th so I will be seeing another doc in his area.  Hopefully I can get some relief.  Have you heard much about Zoloft helping with the anxiety?  I would appreciate any med thoughts you might have.  I have come to the realization that the Valium alone is not cutting it.  And Kitt, thanks for being there for me.  I know you are going thru your own trials right now too.  Your kindness is not unnoticed and very much appreciated.

God Bless,

Gail *Nanners*

Hey Nanners,
Zoloft is a good drug, but Lexapro and Cymbalta, the newer generation meds  seem to do better for the anxiety and for depression.  This is according to my Pdoc.  I personally use Cymbalta and it covers fairly well but I still use the Valium too.  So it turns into kind of a combo that works for each of us.

I wish you the best and remember it takes up to 4 weeks for the full effect of the med to work.  With Lexapro I felt better within a couple of weeks.........

Take care and let me hear how you are doing and what the Doc ordered.  You are free to email.........please.

Hugs
Kitt
