FOr various reasons maybe your original anxiety was spiked by current worries ; several antidepressants, oddly, even though if one remains on them they can be very useful to control and reduce anxiety, may kick up a slight increase of anxiety in the earliest days one is on them. Also, the family of drugs , the SSRI's to which Zoloft belongs, can especially at first, produce nausea, which may be why you threw up, and maybe that made you more anxious ? But your body should get used to this before long.
Solian ( chemical name Amisulpride ) was developed for use in schizophrenia, but is also used in other conditions, including depression.
I understand your concerns, but the suggestions for your treatment sound logical and practical. DO, please, discuss these issues with your psychiatrist who should be pleased to explain to you why he has suggested this approach to your treatment. When one looks up drugs on the web, it can be alarming, as many of the articules you may discover are incomplete, or not even necessarily expert.
Also, remember that each drug has a range of chemical effects within the body. Those that, for instance, were first developed to treat depression with, we tend to call "antidepressants", but they're not specially or uniquely able to help only depression - that's what they were designed for, and what their particular chemical effects tend to be useful for. But in most cases, such meds by the same set of chemical effects, may be useful in one or many other situations.
It also sounds as though your doctor is wisely trying to find the most effective way to reduce your anxiety problems without using mainly the older fashioned tranquillizers which can eventually be habit-forming. That's good
