Has anyone switched from Luvox to Zoloft?

The Luvox made me feel tired all the time so I asked the Dr to change meds. He switched me to Zoloft and now I am even sicker. I am on Benicar for high blood pressure, hztc for high blood pressure and also on a thyroid medication for low thyroid. I was taking 200 mgs of Luvox and he switched me to 50 mgs of Zoloft for a week and then up to 100 a day, taken twice daily. However I am supposed to already be on the 100 mgs starting yesterday but I have not increased the dosage yet because I feel like crap. Hope someone responds to my post.

Re: Has anyone switched from Luvox to Zoloft?

I too take Zoloft, when I first started I took 50 mgs also and I felt like my stomach was constantly uneasy, almost like i was gonna throw up, but never did, kind of like really bad flu pains. it started to subside a little bit and then i too got my dose upped to 100 mgs, and the feelings came back..... i think mine last 2-3 weeks, but when i was upped again to 200 mgs, there has been no sick feeling at all... so if you think the Zoloft might be helping you then stick with it, you will stop feeling sick, soon. good luck Juls

My feelings feel like I did when I stopped taking Paxil Cr abruptly, like withdrawal symptoms. Could it be were the Dr didn't taper me off the Luvox first but instead started me right off with 50 mgs of Zoloft. The only two drugs that have not affected me this way was Prozac and Paxil Cr. I stopped the Paxil Cr because of all the weight gain.
