I have been through 4-5 ssri's and they all make me worst. Today my dr denied my request to switch back to zoloft. I told him I would deal with the side effects but he still ignored the request and referred me to a psychiatrist. I already have a psychiatrist and he sucks! I don't mind getting a new Pdoc but its way to expensive for me with 40$ copays every time I see a specialist. My normal GP is only 25$ for a copay. I am sick of paying so much and I really can't afford seeing a psychiatrist.

It sounds like to me your taking another medication to offset the side effect of the other medication which to me is too dangerous and doesn't make any sense.
Yes maybe it's dangerous? I don't know if it's a side effect? I mean I will admit, the shakiness acquired from zoloft has created rolling anxiety fromnthe shaking, now sometimes I shake when I never shakedown before.

If a medication is causing you to shake please consult with your doctor immediately and don't let them brush it off as if it was nothing. It looks like from what you've described that zoloft is causing you more harm than good.

Not having universal healthcare in a developed country is pretty damn ridiculous.

I don't have health care but can see doctors, psychologist and psychiatrist for free.
Medications are covered under the national health care card so for example a month of cymbalta is about 10 bux.
In America is seems even with Insurance people get screwed royally
