It's really wierd and I can't really understand the cause. It's like it's time controlled instead of situation or environment control. It started full blast on a specific, uneventful day two and a half years ago and has not let up without med since then. This morning I woke up at 6:30, not bad, went back to sleep w/o taking xanax. At 8:30 when I got up the feeling was there and as I lay there for about 20 minutes it just kept getting worse until I took the xanax. I'm adding 20mg of Zoloft today....60 total and see if that helps the anxiety. If not, I'll just live with the zoloft at 40mg and 2mg of xanax until this "thing" magically retreats. Hope you have success.

Thanks for your input

Zoloft 40 mg is a rather low dosage for the anxiety. I am currently on 100 mg and I find it to be very helpful, for me personally. you might want to ask your doctor about upping the dosage to a more therapuetic level. Best of luck jzz!

Hi Jzz
 
Honey don't give up talk to your dr and see if he can up you dose or see what he can do. There are so many meds out there that can help you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

zoloft is a prozac type med, the usual dose renge is 50 to 200, its wist to start low and gradually up it if needed
it can takse 4 to 6 weeks to work and occasionally never works for a person at any dose
 
learning how to relax and calm yourself will also help

Thanks for all of the advice. I've upped to 60mg on the Prozac. The depression is well under control but none of the three meds has touched the anxiety. I was just wondering if any have the capacity to lessen the anxiety or should I just live with Prozac at a lower level and xanax in the morning and just adjust to life feeling like this which is OK but not like I used to. Of course at 62, five operations, menopause. etc. I guess I'll never feel 30 again (I picked thirty because I wouldn't want to be a teen for anything in the world) Talk about a complex life! I at least had a great life until 55 or so.

I deffanently agree with you...I would hate to be a teen again. I know I will never feel as good as I did when I was in my 30s but life can still be good we just have to learn to deal with what we got and sometimes that's hard to do. Please keep posting and talking it will help a lot.

Thanks again for the replies and yet another question. I have been on 60mg of prozac for three days and yesterday I felt the best I have in many months. Today I woke up feeling funky again. Is the med's results inconsistent at first when you reach a proper dosage? I'm about to give up on the anxiety being helped with the AD. It's exactly the same. this is not fun!

Give it a bit more time IMO
Please dont just give up
It may not be the med for you but I would at least wait a bit more
