I always seem to look up these threads when I'm doing coke and I figured I would sign up so I can get some advise. My fiancé and I do coke regularly on Friday and Saturday nights. We drink and just chill. I recently was out on lamotrigine for my mood disorder and anxiety and thay wasn't working so my dr also prescribed me on Zoloft since I was feeling super angry most of the time with just the lamo. Anyways, I've been freaking out with the mix of coke and all my meds. I take 200 mg lamo 50g 1 bar/pill Zoloft and xanax when my anxiety is crazy. Because I only do coke on weekends, how will this effect my heart, my kindset and the effects for the meds on my mental health? I don't want to stop the coke as it helps me unwind from my week . Thoughts ?
With Anxietyzone gone I'm hoping I can find some constructive feedback from you guys. I have panic disorder with agoraphobia, have been on Prozac, Lexapro and now Zoloft. All three have worked but eventually built tolerance. Would increase dose, achieve remission, poop out, be at max dose and have to switch to a new ssri.
Currently dealing with a semi-breakdown. Can't drive over bridges, avoiding wide open spaces, having intense thoughts that I'm about to go crazy, lose control etc...the usual.
To my question. pdoc instructed me to raise zoloft dose from 100 to 125. I'm hesitant making such large jumps. So yesterday I increased to 112.5mg. I usually experience activation effects, jitters, agitation which I consider a positive sign because it usually means I will feel the anxiolytic effects after a couple weeks. I didn't feel the activation effects yesterday, when I increased my dosage. Should I be concerned ?
I endured neglect / abuse from my biological mother from the ages of 0-4...so yeah, I have issues. One of my biggest is anxiety in relationships. I have an amazing boyfriend who I KNOW I can trust deep down. However, I still have anxiety, panic attacks and turn into a mess when he does something as simple as go out with friends. I know this is so irrational, and I have nothing to worry about (except my irrationality driving him away). I just want to be "normal" and say "bye, have a great time" and just hang out at home, get a hobby, etc. But I find myself sitting here paranoid and anxious as hell. And then I text. And then I ask when he'll be home. And then I ask who he's with ... if you've experienced it, you get it. I'm at a loss of what to do. I've been on a cocktail of meds in the past year and diagnosed with everything from bipolar to borderline, and finally I have a doctor that I think I can trust. He's told me anxiety with a bit of PTSD is my main problem, and has put me on Zoloft starting at 50mg.
I'm looking for anyone who has attachment anxiety on here to let me know if Zoloft has helped at all? And if so, what has -- medication wise and therapy wise?
Hi! I've been taking 50mg of sertraline for around about 6(ish) months now. I was prescribed it for generalised anxiety and depression. It has helped a lot more with my anxiety - more calm, not as panicky as before, no anxiety attacks etc. However, i've noticed that i've become very lethargic. I've had not much energy or motivation & i have neglected basic needs such as hygiene (i sometimes dont shower for like a week or two) & food intake (either i eat too much or nothing at all, usually quick meals or unhealthy stuff). I find it hard to get out of bed & go to college/stay at college. Due to this my attendance is not great. This happens even if i've had a decent nights sleep. My overall mood has either been neutral or negative, like a 5/10 or below. I've noticed I get angry & irritated quicker, to the point where i hurt people without meaning to or break personal objects like my computer mouse, phone, hairbrush. I also relapsed on self harm after going for so long without even thinking about it. I've had more thoughts of suicide, self injury and hurting other people.
Has anyone else had similar experiences or other negative experiences whilst taking sertraline? What should I do? Will i have to stop this medication? I'm pleased I'm not so prone to anxiety attacks, but i would like to stop feeling apathetic & depressed so often...
edit: uh...so i was meant to write another paragraph about more minor effects but i forgot. Since taking sertraline i've also been unable to focus on tasks for too long (small things can be distracting like, oh look at those lights, someone just walked in the room, the computer beeped at me, a friend sneezed, theres a cat outside etc), i have difficulty in understanding people - often asking them to repeat stuff and i forget things more often...
