Somebody please help me. I have a 2 yr old daughter who i love more than the world, i cannot be having these problems when i need to concentrate on being the best mom possible. I have ptsd soo bad and every day i take 1 mg xanax to calm me down. I was on zoloft for 5 years which helped soo much bt it seemed to stop so i got off and switched to a diff one (effexor) but that made me severely depressed and worse panic attacks so now i just started therapy and zoloft again. Please readmy story and help me if you relate or have gone thru similar things. I go through my nights waiting for hallucinations or weird things to happen all bc of the one time i smoked too much pot when i was 16, it traumatized me.

Dealing with medications can be both tricky and tiresome. For me, a lot of it was trial-and-error. I was on Zoloft for a while until my psychiatrist realized \"oh hey, that makes her want to blow her head off.\" I tried Prozac too, that went nowhere. For me, Lexapro was my best option, and I\'ve recently been prescribed Ativan for emergencies.
Working with a psychiatrist will help you figure out which medications help and which don\'t, the proper doses, etc. Hope this helps some.
