Hello everyone My name is Aaron and I have suffered from anxiety for about 7 years and the sad part is I was able to stop and control it but I chose to drink and become an alcoholic trying to self medicate. I was on Zoloft for 2 years and I didn’t drink alcohol at all and I felt great no anxiety what so ever. I stopped taking it and that is where all the problems started again. I was over at a friend’s house about 2 years ago and I had a beer and that caused me to drink more frequently. As I drank more I started to get anxiety again. about a year ago I started taking Zoloft again. This time I took it but I still drank, drinking on 50 MG of Zoloft made me feel funny and I didn’t like the feeling of being drunk on Zoloft. Instead of stopping like a smart person I lowered my dosage to 25 Mg so I could still drink. This was the worst Idea ever because I started drinking every other day. This went on, the more I drank the more I could not live without it. I has destroyed my life I wife wanted to leave me and I felt like I was going to die. I have been sober for 2 days now I am back taking 50 Mg. I am ready to stop drinking for good. I never want to pick up another drink for the rest of my life. To any one with anxiety please take it from me do not drink or seriously limit the amount and frequency. It only makes things worse and there are so many other ways to treat this thing besides drinking.
