Recently my dr (which is a PA that works with a psychiatrist) increased my Zoloft from 100mg to 150mg bc I was started to have a relapse of depression, panic attacks and anxiety. After about 5 days on that dose out of the blue my anxiety went through the roof. I woke up shaking, crying, racing thoughts and honestly felt like I was losing my mind. I decided to go back to the 100mg dose and scheduled an appointment to see him ASAP. He suggested that I increase my dose to 125mg for 2-3weeks, take Klonopin 0.5mg 1-2x a day to combat any side effects and see how I feel. That was 3 days ago. Since then I had one day that I woke up so jittery and so anxious that I felt like I took speed, I woke up yesterday severely depressed and crying (guy I like gave me the I’m not ready for commitment speech) and then later on that night I was having very intrusive, crazy thoughts about hurting myself or others, just felt like I wanted to die. I have been taking Klonopin as needed usually no more than a half a pill and it helps but I really hate taking medications like that bc I’m afraid of addiction. I worked an overnight emergency shift last night and on my way home I started crying and felt so depressed and even thought about dying. I seem to have periods of intense depression mixed with intense anxiety and some times even euphoria. I keep reading that increasing Zoloft can cause side effects and I need to wait it out but it’s really starting to affect me and I’m scared I’m going crazy. Any advice or experiences are appreciated!
