What is your dose of zoloft?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I used to take it .. Not anymore been off zoloft for over a year and a half .. Started 4 years ago with 50mg 3 tablets a day and went down to 1 tablet
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
OK
So you need to go back on zoloft.
And see the doctor that gave it to you....

If it worked, this is a good treatment for panic.

Another option is psychotherapy, with a PhD clinical psychologist. For some people this is as effective. Sometimes it takes both.

As far as physical problems/biochemical problems, your doctor should do blood tests for thyroid, vitamin D and magnesium.
