I suffer from Anxiety Disorder, could my multiple panic attacks cause adrenal fatigue?

I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder and am having multiple severe panic attacks a day. I am currently taking Zoloft 100mg which isn’t making a difference. But on top of that I’ve been becoming significantly more fatigued and exhausted during the day doing day to day tasks. I’ve been gaining weight and am struggling to shed the kilos I’ve put on.
My question is could my multiple panic attacks a day be causing adrenal fatigue?

Age: 21
Medications: Zoloft 100mg
General Information: Diagnosed with major depression and generalised anxiety disorder March 2017.

Stress can cause adrenal fatigue that can further cause depression..

If Zoloft is not helpful you can consult your Psychiatrist and get evaluated..

The medication can be changed and along with it you need to get proper counseling sessions..

Also start doing deep breath exercises, meditation and yoga and can go for “OM” chanting as it is very helpful..

Hope this helps..

Hi.If the medicine is not helping you then you need to talk to your doctor .You may need to change in medications. Exercise daily, do yoga to make yourself stress free.Stress can lead to adrenal fatigue.See a psychiatrist. Take care!
