I have suffered with social anxiety for years. Was on zoft for almost 18 years. I stopped it back in may. Thought I could suck it up and deal with life. Wrong! Went to my Dr this past Wednesday to see about getting g back on it. Started 50mg Wednesday and woke up Thursday around 430am with full blown anxiety and it's now Sat and it's still there. I also took another pill Thursday like I was suppose to... I haven't taken one since Thursday. I left the Dr's fine, took that pill and BOOM... must be a side effect. Also, started my period Friday and that always brings on anxiety. Feeling helpless and just wanna crawl in bed and hope it all passes.
