Post zoloft and nausea - help

ive been on zoloft 25mg for a week, started 50mg yesterday. this morning i had to vomit b/c i was so nauseas when i woke up. i am pretty lightheaded feeling. i take the zoloft in the morning. i puked before i took it. i also take trazodone 50mg in the evening for sleep.

is it normal to have nausea this bad when starting zoloft? i suppose it could be remnants of the trazodone too? advice?

try taking the zoloft after breakfast, or later in the day, but always with food...you can also get anti-nausea liquid at the drugstore called emetrol....that helps too

I had the same side effects when I first started taking zoloft. It does help to take it with food. Try to stick with it cause the nausea does go away.

but my nausea was BEFORE i took my dose, i dont really get nausea when i take the actual pill. i wonder if its some kind of withdrawal before i take the next dose? i dont know ill see if it happens tomorrow. its encouraging other people have experienced this and stay to keep with it otherwise it'd be in the trash.

I came here a few days ago, cause I've just been switched to Lexapro & have had the same symptoms. I was avoiding eating cause of the nauseous feeling, but found that if I kept something in my stomach & didn't let myself get hungry, it has helped. Even if it's just some crackers or toast. I'm told it should go away in about 2 weeks. Today it was much better as I kept eating small amounts thru the day. Hope you feel better soon, I am also weaning off my old med & wonder if it's a combination of the two.

2)was it during a certain time of day?
