Individual's need : Based on the symptom severity & individual tolerance to medications and idiosyncracy reactions ( inappropriate sensitivity -undersensitivity/oversensitivity for a particular individual for certain medications whereas other patients may not have any issues at all ) the doses differ. You are on the maximum dose of zoloft (sertraline). Valium 4mg is not a high dose.If ok for u without much sedation , ok to cont.

No research: Shen bu xin wan is a chinese herb used for symptomatic relief of palpitations. It has been used in insomnia, anemia and anxiety. Unfortunately there no double blind studies showing that it even works. It is unclear what are active ingredients. Talk to your psychiatrist before you go on any herbal supplements.
