Common Questions and Answers about Zoloft side effects dilated pupils


266195 tn?1215314011 I don't have any other side effects from the prozac. Not that I know of anyways. Maybe headaches..
Avatar f tn I've been on Zoloft for a few years and was wondering if this can cause some weird effects. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn You need to ask your dr. Having one pupil bigger than the other can mean some serious stuff. Anything from eye problems to swelling of your brain. It could also be something with your eye and certain meds can cause this but its not worth the risk. GO get it checked. Most of the time you can even call your dr office and talk to a nurse if not call the er and see what they think may be causing it. Best wishes.
484759 tn?1208577269 I'm experiences most of the listed pysical side effects (dilated pupils, nausea for most of the day, dizzyness, some restlessness etc.), but mentally I feel like I'm alive again and don't want to give up this medication at all. I have corrected the dosage as of today (1 x 50mg/day for the remaining of the 14 days and then increase to 1 x 100mg/day).
Avatar f tn GP diagnosed anxiety and put me on several meds that I just could not take due to side effects. Tried cymbalta, zoloft, and several others that made me nauseous and sleepless. Now take .5 mg lorazepam per day and seemed to work OK. Saw Opthamologist and he saw nothing wrong, especially with normal dialation (did have lasix surgery that didn't seem to be a factor). GP decided to do CT scan justi in case and came back inconclusive. I do have a brain but nothing wrong that they can see.
Avatar n tn Seroquel is one of the most sedating antipsychotic out there so yes the most reported side-effect is ''weird dream like state and a zombie''. About the Zoloft, yes indeed everyone can react differently to drugs, side effects vary from person to person. It's normal at first to have side-effects that might be overwhelming at first but those tend to disappear once the therapeutic lag is gone or after the first week. There's is one thing I don't understand.
Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
Avatar f tn I also prefer Zoloft, but remember they can take a good couple of weeks to even start feeling the benefit. For me, it actually raised my anxiety and mad me feel much more nervous until my body got adjusted to the medication. Now, it was probably two-fold. I am sure there were some physical side effects, but they were also probably magnified because I was already nervous about starting it.
Avatar m tn At four weeks, you're probably still feeling the side effects of Zoloft. I have been taking it at a very low dose for a few weeks now, and I am still having trouble sleeping. But I've been on Zoloft before, and I know it will get better. I recommend that you keep taking it for at least a couple more weeks and see if it gets better for you, too. Good luck!
2120085 tn?1344769510 apparently it markets as zoloft ? I think i have seen it mentioned here... Has anyone taken these? I was reading side effects and now i am apprehensive Haha!
Avatar f tn I have had very few problems with the my other medications, like the antidepressant, Zoloft (50mg), and the antihistamine, Zyrtec (10mg). But I have started to notice some very disturbing and confusing side effects the same day I started taking this. On Friday, I had taken one pill in the morning and left to go to school (I had taken my other medications the night before). At first it didn't seem too bad. I was concentrating better and felt a lot more confident.
Avatar f tn to take me off it immediately,then came xanax,which actually controls the anxiety and panic attacks and PTSD,without any of those horrifying side effects,and I just feel and seem to others also,my normal 'old' self,not 'drunk' or half crazy,or messed up zombie creature lol,I suppose it comes down to individual body and brain chemistry,these type of medications effect each individual entirely differently,I guess we just have to find what is compatible with our own body /brain chemistry balance,t

Mild syndrome is usually treated by stopping the drug and requires no further intervention, as by stopping the offending drug the syndrome normally resolves itself within 24hrs.
968908 tn?1274874715 I have tried twice to get back on Paxil/Paroxatine and my body goes into meltdown, my nervous system becomes soooo overly stimulated that i have severe and i mean severe panic attacks, with climbing the walls for endless hours. Have tried Sertaline, Venaflaxine, Citlatopram, Escitlatopram and all give me unbareable side-effects. My GP calls me sensitive, that he thinks i may have developed an intolerance to SSRI and SNRI's.....
Avatar n tn I am prepared to do that, I was just wondering if the tingling and undercurrent of anxiety is due to the initial side effects of Celexa, or if I could be responding to it as I did the Zoloft? I didn't want to quit taking it too soon for the simple fact it might help. I need your advise. Many thanks.

Avatar f tn I was scared to try the lexepro because I read about the side effects, but the next day I tried it in the afternoon after dispelling my worries because ultimately it was supposed to help me right? Dead wrong. I got so dizzy, so lightheaded, and a burning sensation throughout my entire body.
Avatar n tn They have had me try 5 medications and all have had bad side effects. I read on this site that Omega3 and flaxseed oil might be helpful........I've been on it a week now, but I understand it takes several weeks to see if it will help . I also take Verapimil 240 mg. to ward off potential migraine headaches , but that isn't always successful. I still have to wear sunglasses everywhere and also to watch TV.
Avatar n tn 5 (this can be achieved by taking the 10 mg tablets and cut them 3/4) it's a hassle, but worth it. then 10 mg after a few weeks. that's how i avoided the weird side effects. now my side effects are low, if none,except for some hair thinning and low libido, and that's a real drag, but it has been successful for the anxiety.
327591 tn?1252929265 The first day that I took it I was shaking and felt drunk (silly drunk, or high) I called the doctor, who said these were common side effects that would pass in a few days or a week. At night I would have twitching in my face, arms and legs, along with whole-body jerking. It was almost as if I was having seizures or something.
Avatar m tn I would say , i dont think the mind can make pupils in the eye to dilate, and i think the weight loss, is connected, I think you need a fully neurological examination, as dilated pupils can be found in a few neurological diseases, and this with all your other symptoms may be connected, as in a systematic illness.
Avatar m tn I had several tests for my head (Neurologist), she RX a med (Sandomigran) to block the 5HT2C and she told me it will make it easier to start a SSRI med and decrease my headache pain but I can't take it, I have too much side-effects... she think that my head pains are all linked to a lack of serotonin and too much of some of the serotonin receptors in my brains...
Avatar n tn I'm wondering if this could be due to the fact that I also take Paxil or if this is simply one of the side effects of Soma? If it is one of the side effects should I expect it to be temporary or is it something I'll have to live with as long as I'm on Soma? Also, I've read contradictary (sp) things about Soma. First, I read that it is not a scheduled drug, then I found an article that listed 5 states in the US in which it is a scheduled drug.
Avatar m tn It's not deadly, but not fun, either, and the meds come with some pretty bad side effects. I think you'll be okay if you lay off the cocaine. Seriously, you don't want to mess with your heart. A lot of people aren't lucky enough to develop just a minor arrhythmia from cocaine; a lot of people actually die. Good luck to you. (Oh, yeah, my sister quit using once she developed the arrhythmia but she continues to suffer from it, five years after the fact.
537497 tn?1292556656 It was just sever anxiety and then once I looked up the side effects of the birth control I realized that it was just from the pills and my body needed to get adjusted. It was sever for about two weeks my boyfriend couldnt even touch me with me freaking out because my mind was telling me that everything hurt. I have since relaxed and learned ways to get threw the panic attacks. The best thing for me is music.
Avatar n tn I went back to the neurologist who prescribed motion sickness packages, which, in turn, dilated my pupils times 10 and made my vision even more blurry. I did more research. I thought that maybe I had poor blood circulation. I've always had it in my legs, why not in my brain? Maybe that was causing the dizziness? So I went to umpteen health stores and spent hundreds of dollars on blood circulating supplements that didn't help.
Avatar n tn I also was put on SSRI but did not like the initial side effects and decided not to continue with daily medication management. I do have a script for Ativan to be used sparingly. Good luck with your stress test, I think the best thing you are doing for yourself and your family is to speak with someone professionally. I just want you to know that you are not alone, your physical symptoms are real, once you accept that the symptoms are related to your anxiety, you can move forward.
Avatar n tn I hope you feel better--Have you ever looked up any side effects for Effexor?? I used to take SO MUCH medicine for my asthma and allergies for so long, and one day out of the blue developed a ton of weird symptoms--About a year later I stopped taking everything and all of my symptoms subsided. It's worth looking into. Have you ever had any problems w/ anxiety/nervousness? I have issues w/ the stiff jaw thing also. It really got bad when I was pregnant, but it's gotten better since then.
Avatar n tn I have recently started Wellbrutrin for depression which seems to work fairly well and I have no side effects. Your answers and encouragement will help...thanks.
