Absentmindedness and zoloft

I just recently upped my dose of zoloft from 50mg to 100mg and I have noticed that I have become a lot more absentminded. Anybody else notice this or is it just me?

Thanks for any replies.

Re: Absentmindedness and zoloft

I had that on Prozac, along with short-term memory loss. I could remember something from a year ago, but couldn't remember what someone just told me two minutes ago. I had to write everything down. For example, if I went to the store for more than two items, I had to make a list. My husband has a bad memory anyway (he's not on meds), so it was like the blind leading the blind alot of times. I also I couldn't 'find the right words' when I was speaking, felt like an idiot. These are pretty common side effects with SSRI's I think.

Between the constant depression/anxiety and 10 years worth of drugs, I know it has affected my concentration. But when I'm on the wrong drugs or having a major depressive episode things are much worse. It's actually better right now.

Hmm, I do get depressive episodes from time to time, which can be debilitating, but I started taking it mostly for anxiety, mostly social anxiety, and I have noticed that I ALSO can't think of the words to say. It's so embarrassing! That just seems to make my social anxiety worse!

Lol, I guess you can't win either way!

Re: Absentmindedness and zoloft

I take zoloft, but I usually only go up by 25 mg...maybe you increased it too much too fast.

I thought I did that a while back, Im no doctor thoough.
