I am on Sertraline (Zoloft) 100mg and melatonin 10mg. My psychiatrist just upped these doses today. I had a schedule change and now come home some nights after 10pm and have to pass by a creepy forested park to get to my apartment from the bus stop. I have anxiety someone will jump out from the trees or follow me from the bus. I had been coping by drinking two bottles of wine for anxiety and sleep but my psychiatrist said to try the Vistaril. I looked it up and the reviews say it doesn't work. :BLAH:

Has anyone used this medication?

Each medication will have different effects on people. What does not work for some may work for you.
Also with regards to the creepy forest. This is completely normal. I think anyone would be anxious walking past a creepy forest.
Medication is trial and error. If it does not work then fine, At least you gave it a go. At the moment you don't know if it will work so the situation may not improve. If you give it a go at least its a forward step and things could really improve.

If the drug did not work for anybody then I dont think they would market it.
