Suffering from chronic depression and anxiety. Prescribed trazodone, zoloft. Side effects of medication?

I suffer from depression and anxiety, and they just put me on 50 mg of trazodone and 50 mg of hydroxyzine . I am also taking 225 mg of zoloft , I ve been on it for about half a year. Are there any warnings I should consider taking these new drugs? I had a very bad experience with Geodon when I was put on it about a month ago, I had severe panic attacks and anxiety. It was completely horrible, so I want to make sure I wont go through that again from these drugs.

welcome to health care magic

Trazodone is an antidepressant. Trazodone 50 mg is low dose and it has been prescribed possibly for insomnia as sedation is a significant side effect of this medication. Hydroxyzine is an antihistaminic drug with anxiolytic properties. Continue taking the drugs as prescribed. No need to get worried.
Zoloft contains sertraline which is an antidepressant (SSRI). You can easily take all these drugs.

Hope this helps
Good Luck
