Found Zoloft and cognitive behavioral therapy to be highly effective in the treatment of reasonably severe anxiety disorders in children and adolescents. I reported on the findings when they first appeared, hailing them as mostly good news, and promised to come back with further postings about the limitations of the research. Today: thoughts about the medication arm of the trial. The is selective when it comes to research studies in psychiatry. I suspect that the editors chose this paper because it looked at a large sample (489 subjects) and because the results were striking. The children had social anxiety, generalized anxiety, and separation anxiety. On medication, most kids responded, and the responses were substantial.
I was originally on 60mg for about 6 years and it stopped working so we switched to a few others that caused bad side effects. I am currently on week 2 of 75mg but I have been on the medication for a total of 10 weeks. I read somewhere that 60mg of Prozac is like 150mg of Zoloft. "A dosage of 25 mg or 50 mg per day is the initial therapeutic dosage. Anyway Zoloft is one that has not given me horrible side effects other then making my anxiety and depression worse prior to it getting better which I guess is normal. The first 2 weeks were good and now i feel like crying again . Do you think maybe I'm just on to low of a dose. I think sometimes Zoloft just stops working for some reason. I think they only let you go up to 200; that's what I keep reading. For adults and pediatric patients, subsequent dosages may be increased in case of an inadequate response in 25 to 50 mg per day increments once a week, depending on tolerability, up to a maximum of 200 mg per day."It's likely that you just don't have a therapeutic level of the medication in your system yet... Anyway when i first started taking it, I had a decent 2 weeks. Any help would be greatly appreciated I had the exact same thing happen to me. Once I went up from 75 to 100 I got really panicky and dizzy, but that's me. Also, there are drugs they can add to your antidepressant to help it work better. and the therapeutic dose differs with every individual patient.

Claiming that she’d “officially built a tolerance to Zoloft.” Comments from followers came pouring in—some congratulating her on boldly speaking about something private, and others sharing their own similar experiences with antidepressants. “The short answer is that it is a well-known phenomenon that is well-documented in the literature,” explains Dr. Schlozman, co-director of The Clay Center for Young Healthy Minds at Massachusetts General Hospital and an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. It’s called “antidepressant tolerance” in common parlance, but the official name is antidepressant tachyphylaxis, which basically translates to a medication (or specific dose of drugs) that was once effective, and is no longer. of depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other psychological conditions, experts say. But it can be emotionally draining and frustrating when you start to feel better and then, suddenly, your once-powerful pills lose their potency—or worse, stop working entirely. The telltale sign of antidepressant tolerance is this: You felt better after having taken the drugs for four or more months, but then your symptoms returned, according to Dr. Antidepressant tolerance is usually marked by specific symptoms, the most common being apathy, fatigue, and lack of motivation.

Content Header .feed_item_answer_user.js-wf-loaded . I'm brand new to the forum and very glad I have found it. I was diagnosed with panic disorder about 13 years ago. I started on velexa and it was OK but I had some side effects and found Zoloft worked much better. I wrote my doctor and am awaiting a response back, but I was wondering if any of you have had any experiences similar to this? I have been on 50mg daily for almost 10 years and it worked pretty great. About 6 days ago, out of the blue , I was hit with pretty severe symptoms akin to those when I first discovered my disorder.
