    10 mg was very effective for me. They upped my dose to 20mg and I had really bad symptoms, went back down and was fine.

      I agree with Danielle. I took them for 6 weeks before feeling Awesome (I am very sensitive to SSRI side effects) then I took them for 2 more months and tapered off because I felt so good I thought I was cured. Guess what, TERRIBLE idea. Anxiety is 10x worse and now have been on Zoloft one week. I will

      Probably have to take a low dose forever.

    Thanks Danielle and Ashley. I will take them as long as they can help me and I will be ok.

    Last few days were very good no panic attack and my anxiety was low only Today after taking them 2 weeks I felt like having light panic attack maybe it's normal or it's still to early.......?

      Yes Ashlee Maybe it's early stage of medication that's why I am feeling like this I know it's our brain playing games with us but as you know sometimes brain wins but I am trying to be strong.

      I have to remind myself that that's all you can do. Be strong and remember that the mind controls everything in your body, and is very powerful. A healthy mind helps create a healthy body. I personally hate taking any medications, but I know that sometimes I need them to get balanced again.

      I am taking tablet around 11 in the morning everyday I wake as thinking to take at night before going to bed it's a good idea or I will stick with morning.

      I will be praying for you Ashlee stay strong May God make this go away sooner then latter.

      I will be changing my time from next week want to take tablet at night so I can sleep and enjoy the day. At the moment I do take 1.5 mg Diazepam at night to help me sleep.

      I want to stop diazepam from next week my GP prescribe me to help me sleep but they are very addictive I guess.
