Thank You! I'd have to say I'm doing fairly good. My anxiety is mostly under control as I have been taking zoloft for a year now and recently was also prescribed hydroxyzine or (atarax) for my anxiety when I feel it getting out of control or have a panic attack. Luckily I have yet to use the hydroxyzine but wanted to many times and was able to work through the anxiety. I've been really happy with the help I've received from my doctor. I first went to a doctor about a year ago and was prescribed zoloft 50mg I believe but am now taking 150mg/day. The zoloft has helped with my anxiety immensely even though I still deal with anxiety I can better handle and control my thoughts and think through things when I am anxious. My anxiety still makes it hard to communicate with people and build relationships but I know it has been getting better and Im making progress.

That’s great to hear! I take Zoloft, too (100mg) for depression and anxiety. I’ve found it to be a good fit.
I’m glad you have the Atarax for panic and anxiety. Sometimes just knowing that you have something to take in an emergency is helpful.
