> Hi,
> I suffer from BPD and am currently on Prozac, but cannot exceed a daily dose of 10mg because of severe agitation (I have tried several times). This low dose helps a bit, but is far from effective. Furthermore, I get anxiety and panic attacks from time to time, and dont leave the house much.
> I am thinking of asking my doctors to switch me to Zoloft. Is a washout period necessary? And how does Zoloft compare to Prozac, benefits and side-effects? What is the starting dose?

Since your on a low dose it shouldn't be a problem,but your dr. would know best. I tried Zoloft and had a bad reaction to it,but that doesn't say it wouldn't work for you.Have you tried Paxil yet? It working for my husband.
