I started out on 25mg Zoloft also. After a week I increased it to 50mg and stayed there or a month or so. My anxiety increased a lot and I could not sleep at night. I had to take Torazadone for sleep. I also had to take Xanax in the morning because that was when it was worse. The side effects for me lasted a week or so and then settled down. After I got up to 125mg the anxiety would not settle down and was horrible. I switched pyschiatrist and he had me continue the Xanax and wean off the Zoloft. For some people Zoloft works wonders on Anxiety but not for everybody. I would talk to your doctor and see if he will give you Xanax or something simular to help you through the startup. I was told that it can take 6 to 8 weeks before it helps.
Tinorock- we seamed to have a simular issue. I tried Lexapro and that was even worse for me. Do you take anything now for your anxiety? I take xanax .25mg 1 to 2 times a day. My doctor mentioned maybe trying Effexor because it is a different kind of medicine. With the reactions I had with Zoloft and Lexapro I am scared to tried another antidepressant.
