"Hey Fox, I see you are taking Zoloft, did it help your anxiety? Do you think this is a good substitute for me if I dont succeed with my current med? And are you taking the xanax regularly with your zoloft? Sorry for asking too much. I too am taking .25mg xanax 3x/day since I started with the generic prozac, takes the edge off the nasty side effects and anxiety but very short term."
Libra, I'm so sorry, I didn't see your post until just now. As for your first question...
The Zoloft has always helped me tremendously, that's why I chose to go back on it. I was on it 3 times in the past, so this is my fourth trip.
It COULD be a good substitute for you, however, everyone reacts differently to meds, but it's worth a try if you get no relief from your current med.
Yes, I am currently taking .5 xanax twice a day, every day, but I hope to be able to wean off of it once i'm at the correct dosage of the Zoloft and just keep it for an "as needed" crutch in case i'm having a super rough day.
Hope this helps you, and again, sorry it took me so long to respond. Hope you are feeling better!
