Yes many of us are fearful or hesitant about
meds BUT your DOC has put you on the zoloft....yes it can take up to 4 to 8 weeks sometimes depending on person to reach full effects ........
No one but your doctor should be telling you to take or not to take or it is your decision BUT still talk to your doc about
it and reasons behind the fear you have ( your dad) ......it may well be what you are needing I dont know
Dan has given great input as have many others on here
You can still take a small dose of ativan or another benzo JUST when u need it and until the other med kicks in ................this is JUST my opinion here as you know we are not professionals we are a support group that is great helping with info and support and knowing where you are coming from ............
Plz keep posting and let us know how you make out ..........
