Im on Zoloft and it works quite well for me, but it took up to 6 weeks to start working properly, so you may have to wait a little while, but it is worth it.
Hang in there and keep us posted,
Welcome to HealingWell and know that you are going to be OK. I am Kitt and I have had A & P and Depression for 26 years......I have learned alot over the years and one of those is I would not die from A & P or stress as my heart is healthy.
So drop kick those thoughts to the curb. Give your medication a chance to work. The AD meds do take time to kick in and some of the side effects to begin with may be increase in anxiety. It may take up to 4-6 weeks for the med's full effect to kick in.
Hopefully you will be able to get into therapy to learn how to deal with the anxiety and once you have you will come off the med but I am not a professional so please work closely with your physician.
Again a warm welcome to HealingWell.
