  • This is a common side effect of prescriptions for anxiety. If you are interested in the Herbal approach email me with your question.

  • Wow. I would definitely question the bumping it up. Zoloft is an anti depressant. If you are having sexual issues, then I would try wellbutrin. It is one of the few that does NOT cause sexual side effects. I take Citalopram (that is generic). It is awesome.

  • Zoloft is for depression, not anxiety. If you are having side affects, ask for something else. I take Xanax as needed and have no problems. I actually take it more when I can't sleep because it make me drowsy and helps me fall asleep and stay asleep. You can also try Clonopin, it is an antianxiety that isn't as strong as Xanax.

  • A lot of antidepressants are also approved and used for the treatment of general anxiety. Most doctors don't just prescribe xanax or Klonopin right off the bat as these are highly addictive and sedating drugs and have a high chance of being sold on the street.
    OP i tried zoloft and it didn't help me. Effexor worked pretty well but i gained 20lbs like really fast. I am now on lexapro and lorazepam and it's doing ok. The lexapro seems to be losing it's effect now after a while i have been on it. I can take a while to find the right med for you. Give it some time.
