| | New to Zoloft. Bad side effects
Ok, my girlfriend was just put on Zoloft last week. They started her off at 50mg. She started with side effects right off. Slight tremors, chattering teeth, slightly anxious.
But each night she took it, it got worse. She was paranoid, auditory/visual halluinations (walls "melting") and such. I've been contact with her doctor. He upped her to 100 mg because he was worried that the reason she was having these was because she wasn't giving her enough. He also scripted her for klonopin at .5 mg to help relieve the anxiety from the side effects. All this seems to be doing is making her loopy and unable to really function.
I plan on going to talk to him myself tomorrow, but has anyone else been on Zoloft and experience bad side effects? What did you do? Stick it out and wait for them to go away or did you stop and switch to something else that helped?
Anything would be helpful.
