Can Zoloft cause small, itchy reddish-pink spots to appear all over the body?

I have been taking Zoloft (sertraline) for almost two weeks now and noticed itchy red spots on my chest, stomach, legs, back and buttocks. I saw a doctor and he didn't believe it to be an allergic reaction to the zoloft but didnt give a definite answer to what the rash is. I havent changed detergents or soaps or anything and am not doing anything differently. Nor do I have a history of any allergies.

devkbtay,

From what you have said, it sounds like it could be a side effect of the medication; perhaps the dosage is too much for you. You could get another opinion by calling your pharmacist.

If you truly believe it to be a side effect of the medication, you should call the FDA to report it. They welcome consumer input: 1-800-FDA-1088

Definitely call your doc and the drug company or the FDA. There are plenty of alternative meds he could try and the company needs this info to protect other consumers.

i STRONGLY believe it was the zoloft. i withdrew from the medication and the rash disappeared completely. i reported this to my doctor and am now on a different antidepressant

It was absolutely from the Zoloft! I have been in protracted withdrawal from Effexor for 2 years now and it has been a nightmare. < edited >
