Hi, this is my first posting. I have been suffering from severe depression and anxiety, which in turn has led to high blood pressure, loss of weight, drive, sense of guilt and shame and all the usual symptoms associated with this condition. I am 63 years old, have no job, very limited income, and no insurance to pay for mental health support.
I am on 150mg of Sertraline (generic for Zoloft) which I take each morning and 100mg of Traxidone at night to help me sleep. I have been on these meds for over 3 months. I feel as if the depression is a little better, but the anxiety has gotten worse and is constant. I have that horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach and the shakes.
I am wondering if the med is causing the anxiety to worsen?
Has anyone else experienced similar reactions and any advice? I am desperate to stop this anxiety?
Thanks for any feedback.
