Hi there! I just came across this forum and felt compelled to sign up. I think it will really help me to talk to others/get advice. I have been diagnosed with PTDS (multiple bad car accidents) & anxiety/depression. I am currently taking Zoloft 100mg daily and take Xanax (.5mg) on occasion as needed. I do not feel like these are helping anymore, and my anxiety has gotten a LOT worse over the course of the past 3 months. I do not currently have insurance (a probably source for a decent bit of anxiety) and my currently job does not pay enough for me to get insurance on my own. My anxiety is starting to effect my daily life more so than usual. (Sleeplessness, causing added depression symptoms, mood changes, stress migraines, bad chest pains, regular occurring panic attacks) Not really sure what my next steps should be. I am looking to find out what medication or combinations of medications have helped others the most with their anxiety. I know that everyone is different, so finding the right combo can be a long process, but since I do not have the funds to go to the doctor as often as I would like, I would love to hear some first hand stories of what works best for you. I am a 28 year old, female. (not sure if that really matters, but as far as medication goes, figured I would throw that out there) I look forward to reading through a lot of threads tonight (while I am up with this awesome insomnia). Hopefully I am not posting this in the wrong place... newbie problems!
