maybe get back on the zoloft, perhaps at a higher dose and this time learn relaxation, CBT and anxiety and panic coping skills
It can come back years later by which time many have forgotten whatever CBT they learned, so it helps to keep a journal when recovering noting the things you tried and what helped or didnt help, in case it comes back
dont search for subconscious causes of the relapse, just get on with coping with it
relapses or setbacks, like other unpleasant things, just happen
Hi-all-thanks for your responses!!
Yes, Harry, I have upped the Zoloft dosage to the maximum (through my doctor)...Have been working on relaxation, etc., but so many things have happened to me this year that it is hard to relax!!
Barb-no, fortunately, it is not as bad as the first time around, perhaps because I knew what it was immediately (first time around I was tested for all kinds of things before I was diagnosed with A/P) and my doctor upped the dosage of Zoloft. But, even at a maximum dosage, I still feel the A/P, although I guess it is bearable at this point (I am not pacing the floors at night like I did the first time around...) I just feel like until my life straightens out to a "normal", and my husband and I get our feet on the ground again, I will have this no matter what I do. I was just thrown for such a loop, though, because I thought I had the A/P under control...wish there was a cure for this!!
