I have been on Zoloft for 7 weeks 150mgs and along with that i'm also on Zyprexa 5mgs and Clonazapam ,I am feeling better not more panic attacks but when I wake up from a sleep my body shakes but onces i'm awake it goes away. Also i'm still not feeling the best I can still in the morning I have some anxiety but as the day goes on I start to feel better. My P-Doc told me for some people it can take as long as 3 months to reach where I should be. Can I hear from ones on meds that has been through this as well. Thank You Suebird confused

Welcome to the Anxiety ~ Panic Forum

I am Kitt. I know what you are going through. It took a long time to find the drug that worked for me and mornings were always bad as I could wake up in bed and just start crying as life seemed so hopeless and I did not know what to do.

I wanted so bad for someone to help me as the pain of being so sad was almost unbearable.  I would get up and get dressed and not know what to do next, so I would start to cry again.

The meds do take a long time to kick in and IMO I do not know of any that take away the depression completely for me.

It lurks in the background and I just refuse to let it take over.

I know that it is a disease but I want to live a good life and enjoy my family and have some fun.

Please know we are here for you so stay with us and keep posting.



Respectfully

Hi Kitt,

I was reading through some posts and when I read your words about depression it really hit home with me. I can feel the sadness is always there just below the surface and I have to fight to keep it from taking over again. I know I will be on antidepressants for the rest of my life.

Hi Suebird,

It took my meds about 8 weeks to start working. I'm unfamiliar with Zyprexa so I have no idea about that one. I hope you get feeling better soon.
