I think you should probably give the Zoloft a few more days. Usually the anti-d's take a few days to get passed any side effects and generally take 4-6 weeks to take full affect.
As for the anticipatory anxiety, I use Xanax (lowest dose) when those bad times hit. I am now able to recognize it ramping up and stop it in its tracks with the help of my Xanax. I only have to use it 1 to 3 times a month.
