Sertraline (Zoloft)

(Copied over from old review system)

Posted by Ospi
Social Anxiety Background
Specific to "nights out" or any occasion which involves "letting your hair down" so to speak. This includes parties, clubs, pubs, road trips or pretty much anything where the idea is to actually enjoy yourself. Anxiety is non existent in professional environments.

Other Treatments
Valium is used when required thanks to is fast acting, reliable and helpful effects at significantly reducing anxiety and panic attacks.

Treatment Experience
Zoloft is the only drug I have taken for my social anxiety in conjunction with Valium when required. I have had success with this drug in the form of less general anxiety through day to day living and it has helped me to take steps towards overcoming my anxiety properly by seeking therapy and using the drug in conjunction to help make positive progress.

Side effects are minimal for myself, first few weeks I suffered from mild insomnia and lack of appetite however these effects diminished completely after the first month of use.
