zoloft users
 
I would like to hear from some Zoloft users. I was just switched from Lexapro to Zoloft. Lexapro tended to increase my anxiety, I was on it for one month. Did anyone have side effects when starting Zoloft, how long did they last. How long before you noticed the Zoloft working.
Thanks

Ive been on zoloft for 5 weeks now and i guess it dpends on the
person taken it what side effects you can get but here are mine.

:brain pains...i believe them to be called zaps or something.
:abdominal upset
:Insomnia
:sleepiness
:nausea
Diarrhea
:Unsteadiness

I guess that is all right now but that was when i started the zoloft
at 25 mg but it seemed like i was starteing to feel a little more better
around the fourth week and the feelings were starting to kind of go
away but then i started 50 mg just last week and im not sure if im feeling
some of the effects coming back or if it is causing other effects but,
i feel like im gonna lose it or something. Not sure when all these feelings
will start to go away and i will finally feel like myself but...thats the way
i feel from it.

Yikes, that is all of the same symptoms that I had on Lexapro. I don't know if I can stand another month suffering the same.

Hello, I have been taking zoloft for about 3 months now and have had very minimal side effects. Within the first couple of weeks, I felt the upset stomach, nausea, and diarrhea, but that all passed after a while. I know everyone is affected differently, but my advise to you would just to give it a chance. A lot of times the side effects will fade once your body gets used to it. I wasn't bothered enough by the side effects to stop.. hopefully you will have a better experience this time. Good luck! :)
