Ive been on Zoloft for the past 14 weeks for Panic Attacks, Generalized Anxiety and Depression. I have been taking 50mg/day.

My panic attacks have subsided a little, but my generalized anxiety and depression are so far out of control. Im a 28 year old male living in San Diego. Im pretty big; 6'2 and about 230lbs. I asked my dr. today if I could try upping the dosage because I dont feel its working at all. She gave me a script for 100mg Zoloft a day. Tomorrow will be the first dose of 100mg.

My question is do you think that my dose was too low for my size or anything else? I was on Paxil for 5 years and it really helped me with anxiety and depression. I came off the Paxil (complete hell) because I thought I was better, then a few weeks later I started to have bad panic attacks again. I didnt want to go back on paxil because of the 2 months of hell coming off so Im trying Zoloft.

Do you guys think that the higher dose will help me alot? Also, how long should it take for that extra medicine to get in my system?

Thanks Everyone

Bill

1. Size doesn't matter, SSRI's are Seratonin drugs.

2. Time will tell. 7-14 days.
