    Hi Brenda stick in there it dus get better I've been on them over a year now at the start I was the same as you, you have to give them up to 3 months to take full effect. I have not had one panic attack since taking these and I was terrible at the hospital constantly just try and stick in there xx

    Starting on 100mg seems extreme. I started on 25mg and still the increased anxiety was hard to deal with! Slowly worked up to 50mg

    Maybe ask about dropping down a bit until you get more use to it?

    Hi Brenda, so sorry you're experiencing such bad anxiety and panic attacks even though you have been on zoloft 100mg for 4weeks! Because i was having horrible panic attacks and anxiety that was killing me. Daily panic attacks...a few that every time i felt was horrid. My doc put me on zoloft 50mg to begin with 3rd of May.... i haven't had one panic attack since...the anxiety gone and i also had horrible thoughts of death and dying that i couldn't get rid of....they are all gone. Even if i try to think about them, i cant. So I'm just wondering if maybe zoloft isnt for you, it shouldn't make your symptoms worse, definitely not after 4 weeks!!!!

    Definitely see your isn't normal.

    I wish you peace and hope you overcome this horrible thing we're all dealing with.... and i hope zoloft or if advised by doctor, another medication stops your panic attacks and anxiety asap
