Hello Angest
Hun I'm sorry to hear your having to go thru this again (((Hugs))). I don't know anything about the Zoloft but someone will be along soon that can help you with that. I would check with your dr before ever getting off of any of your meds he may need to taper you off of them. Hope your feeling better soon hun.

Your panic attack may have been brought on by mixing the alcohol with the Zoloft.  Alcohol is a depressant, which temporarily numbs your senses, but if you are taking anti-anxiety medication, the two can conflict.  I'm sure there is a warning against alcohol in the documentation that comes with your meds, if not a sticker on the bottle itself.  You may have an irritable stomach, since mediations can cause irritation.  Adding alcohol is just like pouring gas on a fire.  That probably was why your stomach hurt and caused you to panic.  That obviously kicked in the heart palpitations, and ta-dah, panic attack.  Adding the Inderal to the mix could have been dangerous also.
Concentrate on your life, not whether or not you are likely to have panic attack.  Just the desire to quit your meds could have brought on the attack.  Your subconscious could have been focusing on what would happen to you if you quit your meds and had an attack, without something to back you up.  Just a thought.
Let us know how you are doing.

the smallest zoloft dose for panics is 50 , are you also on any other antidepressant?

ask doc for an explanation, the 25 may have been a starting dose that was meant to be upped to 50 later but doc maybe forgot

also maybe talk it over with a pharmacist

I doubt the alcahol was totally responsible

I agree that we shouldnt monitor our bodies, ignose your body and get on with your life yeah

Hi, my name is Brad-I thought I was dying for months. Never felt good, then the pain started in my arms, legs, ankles, feet and hands. Ended up in the hospital, had every test ran on me, I was told that it is anxiety. I was having panic attacks. In some ways I was relieved that I was not dying anymore, but i have no idea how to stop this. I have not followed up with a doctor yet. What is your advice. Sorry I don't know who I am writing this too because i still have not figured out how the website works yet. Look forward to meeting you all.

Hi Brad! You welcome to this forum board. Sorry about your condition.The best thing is to go to your GP and he can decide what problem you have. I was like you and did all investigations ,nothing came up ,then diagnosed like an anxiety and panic attack....
