Hi Everyone,
   Im on week 3 of Zoloft and I feel sooo much better. I did a lot of errands and my boss called me to tell me there was $20 missing from his office and was questioning me. I would never take money!  Anyway.. I went to the pet store to hang out with the puppies and all of a sudden...Anxiety Attack!! I havent had one since i started the Zoloft..I thought i was free of them :(...Does anyone still get attacks on their AD?

Generally they take 4-6 weeks to work fully, could be because you are still fairly new to it, some residual anxiety hit you. Do you have any fast acting meds such as Xanax to use in the meantime? If so, I would use them as needed on the bad days till your Zoloft fully kicks in.
