Phillipa:

I probably could take a benzo, but I don't know if Zoloft is the right SSRI for me anyway. It seems too activating + dampening. I had success with Prozac and Celexa several years ago. I don't remember them having an activating or dampening effect. They were more calming and opening. It's frustrating though, because it seems that many people with anxiety disorder-oriented stuff get success from Zoloft. You said your son was taking it successfully for PTSD, right? Actually, I took the Zoloft for eight days, then stopped a few days ago. I feel better off it than on it. I'll probably try something else. I was on this board four years ago when I too Lexapro for a year, but that did little for me, even at a higher dose (40mg). The psychiatrist I saw for the first time was also suggesting Neurontin or low dose Abilify. Not a big fan of the anti-psychotic drugs for anxiety. I guess I'll just have to experiment again, like everyone else. What a drug these disorders are.
