It has been such a hard road these last few months. First losing it and going in patient...now I have a whole bunch of medical tests coming up. Scared out of my mind.
When I was in the hospital they put me on paxil and increased the dose at the end of the week to 40mg. I was feel pretty okay. Not exactly where I wanted to be but livable.
Then I went to my new psych doctor and he said he like zoloft better. We started at 50mg and now have been on 100mg for a week. The last few days the anxiety/depression seem to be increasing. I feel like I am going backwards. I had an appt. with him yesterday and he was surprised I wasn't feeling better. He wants me to give the zoloft another two weeks.
Honestly, I am scared of doing that. I don't want to end up back in the hospital. I feel so overwhelmed. He said if it gets worse by the end of next week to give him a call. Well, it was already worse this morning. Woke up with dry heaves again, can't eat, crying, constant worrying about my health problems.
I thought since paxil and zoloft were in the same class of meds it wouldn't take long for the zoloft to kick in.
Just looking for some opinions I guess. Do you really feel it's worth it to stick it out?
I have a therapist appt. this afternoon and it's about a 35 min. drive from my house. I don't even want to go but I will force myself too. My hubby has to work today so I have to go it alone.
Blessing to all, kitkat
