Zoloft for me has been nothing short of a life-saver. I began taking it approximately two years ago for anxiety and panic attacks, and not once experienced any problems until the day I thought I could quit cold turkey. Not realizing what I was getting myself into, I didn't hesitate to return taking the full dose (which was 150 mg). (I really should've done some research beforehand!) I was prescribed Prozac about a month ago by my physician and began taking it only to discover that the side effects of it were almost as bad as the withdrawal symptoms of Zoloft. I experienced dizziness and nausea as with the withdrawal of Zoloft. I've currently run out of Zoloft and debating on whether I should begin taking the Prozac once again. The "shocking" sensations, body aches, nausea and dizziness that I experienced from immediate withdrawal of Zoloft before are now returning. I no longer have medical coverage, and am considering just popping a Prozac. Has anyone here ever switched from Zoloft to Prozac with a smooth transition??? I'm a bit weary, but DO NOT want to go through Zoloft's nasty withdrawal symptoms ever again!!!

I also have Xanax...but thought only to reserve those for my panic attacks. Any suggestions???
