I just read your earlier post and realized that you are already off the birth control pills. Without turning this into a gyn discussion group :), I'd be concerned, if these symptoms are truly new since you began the pill and you were having breakthrough bleeding before that (did the doctor say what caused the bleeding?), that perhaps they are all related to hormone problems. Especially if you are over 30, you could be experiencing perimenopausal problems (even if menopause itself is years away). If you suspect that you might be having problems related to your hormone levels, two good books to read are "Listening to Your Hormones" by Gillian Ford and "Screaming to Be Heard" by Elizabeth Lee Vliet, MD. They were very helpful to me in figuring out the role hormones were playing in a variety of problems I was having (and that lots of doctors don't seem very well informed about, hence the title of Dr. Vliet's book). Good luck!

> From what I understand the Doctor prescribed zoloft 50 mg a day because my serotonin levels were too high thus the anxiety without depression. Does zoloft increase serotonin or decrease or satabalise? I have only been experiencing anxiety for about 6 weeks or so...I think it was because I was on Levlen "the pill" ever since then i have been jittery and have been anxious. I have only started taking zoloft and was wondering how it worked and how long it would take to start working?
