Talk to your doctor : Discuss your symptoms with your doctor. You may have to reduce the dose of your Sertraline (start low and go slow). In some cases, short-term (2-8 weeks) use of an anxiolytic agent is needed to alleviate the symptoms of anxiety until the SSRI starts to work. Discuss your options with your doctor who knows you and your history.
