Looking for some support or guidance which I know a forum might or might not be the place. I’ve been dealing with panic attacks and intrusive thoughts for about a year. I’ve tried everything natural, CBT and finally broke down to try medication.

I first started with 25mg of Zoloft but had horrible GI problems so they switched me to 5mg of Lexapro. Only been on it for a little past a week.

The intrusive thoughts have gotten worse but I have times that I feel great. Is this something that is normal and should I stick it out? The intrusive thoughts are the worst and really brings me down which makes me think I’m going crazy.
