    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

    Re: zoloft users

    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.

    Re: zoloft users

    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!
