Anxiety's back after I came off Paxil - try Zoloft ?

I came off of paxil 2 1/2 years ago. Currently i having the same anxiety/depression symptoms I had before I went on paxil and during the withdrawl. I was considering going back on something, maybe zoloft.

Yeah the 5-htp was horrible for me. I was only on it one day and the side effects were already present. They seemed wores than the paxil side effects. Freakish nightmares and headaches. I had one of the craziest dreams I have ever had sunday night.

I may go on a low does of paxil 12mg or zoloft 12mg.
