I took Zoloft (sertraline) for my anxiety but it was too strong, is there something else I can take?

In brief: Try alternatives

These include: other medications, low low doses, or no medicine and lifestyle changes.
Therapy and lifestyle change (especially exercising and healthy eating) can be close to or even as effective as antidepressants for many people. Don't be afraid to try these options, especially if your depression is not severe.
