Contact provider: Unless this was prescribed for anxiety that has suddenly returned, What you are describing sounds like withdrawal symptoms from sudden cessation of the medication. Usually Zoloft (sertraline) and other SSRI antidepressants are slowly tapered off. Please contact your provider to coordinate what to do next - withdrawal symptoms may produce some other complications.
