Exercise and zoloft

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise and zoloft


459279 tn?1206997145 I was on Zoloft 50 mg for 6 months, blood pressure was up and still was having anxiety and trouble sleeping, so my Dr increased the Zoloft to(100mg daily) and recently added buspar, 3x daily, I do feel better except my weight is going up even with exercise which is causing allot of new stress. Would you agree the meds are increasing my weight? I'm a while make 46, 5'11 199 lbs.
Avatar m tn Slowly at first and then pretty hard today. I had hoped that the zoloft would keep the depression and anxiety away. I am seeing a therapist for CBT as well. My depression is still under control but the anxiety is bad. Shouldn't the zoloft take care of the anxiety? Also, once my body is full of adrenaline and/or cortisol or what ever the chemicals are that cause anxiety, what is the best way to get them out of my system?
Avatar f tn Or just the Zoloft? I took Zoloft over ten years ago for a year and a half and did not experience this weight gain. Any advice would be great! Thanks!

Avatar m tn when I exercise, they cease, and when I am done exercising, I feel better and more confident. I wont be taking Zoloft anymore. It may be a good med for some people, but I did not do too well on it.
Avatar f tn So, try to develop good sleep hygiene. Sleep and get up at the same time every day, avoid smoking, alcoholic and caffeinated beverages and exercise regularly. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn My experience with zoloft was, that taking 50mg a day, I at first lost a few pounds, and was ecstatic. I've struggled with severe anxiety, and the zoloft really helped me. However, after about two months of being on it, I began to gain weight steadily, until I had packed 15 extra pounds on to my small frame. I never had ANY trouble with weight gain in my life; if I started seeing the scale creep up, I could exercise and be careful for a day or two and it would go right back to normal.
Avatar n tn About 1 year ago, I had a physical done and my blood work was perfect. I have been taking the generic for Zoloft, Sertraline, for about 8 months now. I did another physical 3 wks ago, and it showed my TSH levels off and my Cholesterol as 276 with high LDL cholesterol also. My HDL level was high, which is great. I exercise and eat very healthy.
Avatar m tn Hence it is advisible to take guidance from the treating doctor. Male deer exercise and kegel exercises are good for sexual vigour. Google these phrases.
Avatar m tn absolutely, I have many of those same issues, mornings are my worst time although it can continue thru the day. I too take zoloft but take it at night as it makes me sleepy. I am doing meditation and exercise in the mornings and that seems to be helping. I always suggest Eckhart Tolle books or he has stuff on u-tube. The intrusive thoughts and the what ifs really can screw up your day. Seems to come with the territory but I am hopeful to retrain the brain!!!
Avatar n tn I am in the midst of a major depression myself and am in the process of trying meds lexapro, celexa, Zoloft, and Wellbutrin have not worked for me so far. I see the doc next week so we will see... I too wake up with the worst depression but it goes away in about an hour, like boshogg42 said I think it's the thought of how long the day will be. Then the depression hits back hard at 6-8pm at night. Hang in there! Your doing better than me in the exercise dept.
Avatar f tn Zoloft gave me my life back (also did a lot of CBT). I have still had panic attacks on Zoloft (but rarely) and usually I have triggered it by having too much alcohol followed by little sleep - a lethal combination for me. Overall Zoloft has been a Godsend and the only issue I've had is a lack of libido. After in depth discussions with my Dr's I had accepted that Zoloft was part of my life and that was ok.
Avatar f tn So my question is, should I continue back on Zoloft? And if so, can I start back up at 100 mg? I got to start feeling normal again and start chilling out. /0: Please advise. p.s. Do people stay on a med. like Zoloft forever!?
527657 tn?1214051850 I read up about both but am wondering if weight gain is a problem with zoloft. As for paxil i gained over 25 pounds and now Im trying to lose it and it sure isnt easy. I found out you don't take zoloft at night but paxil you do. I have got to lose this weight.
Avatar f tn I suggest either that or water aerobics. Exercise will save you and the social aspect is truly important. Cut out the craps food and focus on good nutrition. Some days are still tough but its way better than it was! Hang in there. Im here for you too.
1880256 tn?1322569908 this all started about a month ago. I walk a mile everyday,and I don't eat as much as I used too. Since I started 100mg of Zoloft I also started taking Estroven nighttime for menopausal symtoms.Then my doc said to do 1000mg of vitamin c for flu season. And it seems like my metabolism has changed since starting the 100mg of Zoloft.But then again,I exercise alot more too.I have lost 25 pounds since starting all this.
Avatar f tn i have been taking Zoloft , chlonazepam for years and gradualy putting on weight I am wondering if I can use the new product to loss weight SUPER SLIM. Can you please advise me if there is any contra indication? I appreciate your help.
Avatar m tn yes, i was diagnosed with hypoglycemia of some kind, at the doctors office my blood pressure was 70/50 i felt dizzy, its always low, and my resting heart rate is 45 or so , and i do smoke which i think is wierd, i used to exercise a little, plus i also take klonopin and zoloft......
1727825 tn?1309890045 Yes it is common to get dizzy when upping an SSRI such as Zoloft especially if you had this side-effect when originally starting the 50 mg. dose.
Avatar n tn i am in same problm. i have anxiety and depression. was on zoloft for 6months and stopped and after 1.5 yrs that anxiety came back and i found im also pregnt same time. i tried tofranil it didnt work not back to zoloft today is 10 th day ill increase it to 100. i donno of it will work 2nd time or not. my anxiety is so bad that everyday i want to kill myself. i can not shut my eyes without xanax and all day i suffer from severeeeee continuous anxiety . zoloft is safe for pregnancy.
Avatar m tn I just had a follow up with my psych doc and asked her about the hot feeling and sweating and she said it definitely can be from the Zoloft and also from excess underlying anxiety.
Avatar m tn Over the past 4 months, I have tried zoloft, lexapro, celexa, buspar, and now Zoloft again. I was given the 25mg tabs and told to take half (12.5) due to my body is apparently very sensitive to these type of meds. I was taking it at night, but i could not fall asleep. I would be dog tired, but couldnt flip the switch.
Avatar f tn i lost my job about six weeks ago, and immediately became and anxious and started having panic attacks. i remember having panic attacks about two and a half years ago, and my doctor started me at 25 mg of zoloft and worked me up to about 150mg in three weeks time. i don't remember exactly how long it took for the anxiety to go away, i think about 5 weeks. this time she put me on 150mg of zoloft immediately.
Avatar f tn I refused to rest a day and ended up needing a brace and PT because I continued to exercise. I wash my hands often and use hand lotion immediately---I must do this. My moods are unstable and I become irritated easily, anxious and depressed. I weigh myself often to see if I have lost any weight. I also binge eat now and crave anything salty or sweet.
Avatar f tn Thank you I am in therapy I see someone 2 a week because I bated how I felt and it was so scathe I am getting back to me I have incorporated exercise and a whole new eating regime I feel better part of problem is having hard time with getting job which was the major reason tor this.
Avatar f tn Hi there. It is my understanding that if you look at the package insert of sertraline/zoloft that the average dose is often quite a bit higher than the starting dose. It takes a higher mg. amount to get an effect for lots of people. So, bumping it is trying to get it to therapeutic levels for you. Many antidepressants may peter out with time as it sounds like that is what happened with your paxil and may eventually happen with zoloft.
