Side effects from starting Zoloft (50mg tablet)?

I started my Zoloft for my anxiety on october 30th taking half a pill for a few days. I then upped the dosage to the full pill on november 3rd. A few hours after taking the full pill I got a pretty bad anxiety attack and had to take some xanax to calm me down. Are anxiety attacks normal when first starting Zoloft???
