Re: Are SSRI's the right choice for me?

A few suggestions.

(1) Perhaps you jumped back onto the Zoloft at too high of a dose, too quickly. Zoloft is known for giving many people extreme anxiety if they "dose up" to quickly. My pdoc wanted me to start at 6mgs to be safe!! In fact I think this is why many pdocs put people on Paxil instead. The initial anxiety with Paxil is generally thought to be a bit better.

(2) Zoloft and Prozac are known as being particularly "activating" SSRI's. Many people report trouble sleeping. You may be better trying something like Paxil CR. Some people feel the side effects are worse, but personally I experienced the same S/E with Paxil CR that I did with Lexapro (an SSRI that many report has fewer side effects)

Just my 2 cents...

Good luck!
