This is my first post so be gentle with me I have been taking Sertraline/Zoloft (50mg) now for 54 days and I'm not sure if it is working?
I was previously on Paroxetine (Paxil) for 24 years for panic and anxiety disorders but after a massive panic attack, saw a psychiatrist who eventually put me on Escitalopram (Lexapro) 15 mg, but that didn't seem to work either.
I have become quite housebound because I also developed a Vestibular disorder which is a balance disorder that was triggered by a vertigo attack on a ship. This led to agoraphobia and increased panic attacks.
Right now I feel quite desperate to be honest, as I feel like I will have a life of agoraphobia if I do not start getting back out into civilisation soon. But I feel too anxious to get out and about.
I am now 49 and have panic attacks since I was 20.
I was also a very busy engineer for 28 years, before the balance disorder stopped that line of work
I guess I'm asking to see if anyone else has been in a similar situation and did Sertraline/Zoloft work for them with panic attacks/agoraphobia.
Really appreciate any replies
