      I second the benzo suggestion. Antidepressants just kind of help with acute anxiety, typically need an anxiety specific drug, especially for panic attacks. The antidepressants just help with maintenance.

      I hope you feel better soon, there are some apps I use to calm myself down like anxiety apps that have things you can distract yourself with or do breathing excuses, I know that doesn't cure anxiety or anything but it may help a little to relieve the anxiousness:(( ❤️

      So, like Ontheedge_mama said, maybe zoloft isn't for you. I like what Sabrina was saying about the 5, I used it with my younger sibling and they calmed down so fast it was almost unreal.

      When I feel like I can't control my anxiety with breathing, grounding techniques, and self talk I also (like Tomato) take benzo drugs - my doctor prescribed me lorazepam for these anxiety attacks

      Take some time to sit by yourself in a well-lit room. List 5 things you can see, 5 things you can hear, and 5 things you can touch. Drink a glass of water, it will lower your heart rate. Remember, you are safe, you are loved, and you are not alone!!

      I took zoloft and it made me more irritable toward my husband and kids, I couldn't sleep and my anxiety went through the roof

      Will the zoloft help my anxiety? Have you ever experienced dissociation

      In anxiety the thing that helps me the most to just “extinguish the fire” are benzo drugs
