After battling anxiety for a few years unaided I finally mustered up the motivation to see a doctor yesterday. He prescribed me the drug Zoloft, which I've seen many people mention throughout these threads. He prescribed 50 mg pills, but suggested I take half a pill for the first week (25 mg) then begin taking the whole 50 after the first week. He said not to expect to feel any differently for a few weeks.
I'm not expecting this to be a miracle cure, but I am curious as to how I will feel once it begins to kick in and how it will help my symptoms. I told the doctor about my fears and nervousness in social settings and he said this should help me to be more calm and maybe not pay so much attention to these external factors that drive me crazy. I'm hoping the drug will help me worry less and just live.
Any input from others using this drug?
