Zoloft side effects itching

Common Questions and Answers about Zoloft side effects itching


Avatar n tn Ruth Ann, It is unclear if you had itching prior to starting treatment with Zoloft. It would be unusual for Zoloft to cause chronic itching. I urge you to discuss your concerns further with your treating allergist, dermatologist, and psychiatrist.
Avatar n tn I am frustrated with doctors who seem to think that there is no way that zoloft caused these problems (I have been researching the side effects) and that I am just a fat girl making excuses. I was wondering what it is that I can do to reverse these side effects and what type of doctor, or specialist would be able to help me?
1711722 tn?1356491154 pending. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ A Summary of Side Effects BigDaddy suggested we write down side effects and remedies, so I might as well do that here, while I still remember. Since I am on treatment with Victrelis, I have a previous entry about SOC side effects, and then those once VIC was added.
Avatar n tn I have heard that Zoloft in combination with Ritalin can help with some of the initial side effects..any truth in this? Any first time experiences with the med would help. Also I am completely new to SSRIs.

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 n tn She was like a guinea pig and now, 8 years after, she is living with side effects that have never gone : hypotension (around 8), fainding every day, unbearable headaches, kidney pyelonephritis every months, and an exhausting fatigue that keep her in her bed sometimes several days, where she can hardly eat alone. Before that, she was so full of life, making car races, flying planes, being a model for photographes, and photographer herself.

Avatar f tn could some of you who know more about Zoloft and other antidepressants answer Hazel30 over there? Her mom is having a hard time with itching (can't take HRT due to the ovca diagnosis) Thanks so much ladies!
Avatar n tn What were once side effects may now be something else,like an expression of an underlying depression that is not being treated. I would recommend a consulation with a therapist rather than looking for another medication. You may be able to figure out what is bothering you without having to take anything.
Avatar n tn I loved the way it made me feel (ignoring the 10 pounds I gained and the frequent night drenching/insomnia). I began horrible anal/vaginal itching that lead to all over body itching. The itching seems to start every night around 5:00. It took me 5 months to determine it was the Cymbalta. I went to a rectal surgeon, my obyn, dermatologist, psychiatrist and an allergist. I found out that itching was a side effect by googling on the internet.
Avatar n tn Zoloft, Paxil, Effexor, Serzone and Norpramine, they either didn't work or caused sexual dysfunction. Wellbutrin was tried because of low incidence of side effects, especially reduction of sexual function. The medication was working very well. I was starting to feel definite relief of depression symptoms and still felt like having sex. On day 16 I began to itch, no hives, just itching.
Avatar f tn are the side effects any less if your viral load is low and minimal damage? I have been having anxiety problems over this and wake up shaking. I am now on anxiety meds and zoloft to even me out before I start meds in 4 days.
Avatar f tn Mey momof Itching and liver disease has never been thoroughly understood. An increase in bilirubin levels may sometimes have this effect and very often bili levels will rise as a result of treatment more specifically because of possible "anemia.. I would not worry about this whatsoever .
Avatar m tn Certain extrahepatic (outside the liver) conditions associated with HCV, such as autoimmune conditions, may also lead to itching. More commonly, itching due to dry skin can be a side effect of HCV treatment; this is not the same as pruritus due to advanced liver damage. Pruritus symptoms can range from annoying mild itching to severe itching that interferes with daily life. Often the itching is worse at night, and may prevent sleep. Simple scratching typically does not relieve pruritus.
Avatar n tn There is no doubt that side effects similar to what you describe can be attributed to the treatment drugs several months after treatment is over. The big question, however, is long did you know this fellow before he started treating? I ask because if I remember correctly, you either met him during treatment or shortly before. Regardless whether someone treats or not, relationships often change especially in intimacy issues, as time progresses.
Avatar f tn he precribed me Zoloft on Sept 14th was nervious before taking it did have some side effects but went away like itching then longer i took the itching got worse and felt like flu like systems had a low grade fever 99.0. found out from my primary doctor had sinus infection took meds for the infection finished medicine felt better.
8915942 tn?1400599084 Up to 150mg of Zoloft (Doctor stated in cases like me, he would recommend up to 350mg - 400mg) and 150mg is where I considering staying awhile. I don't want to get to the point where I'm dependent upon it. Only side effects I having are "Hot Flashes" and "Itching" on hands and arms. With the Hot Flashes, since I'm gradually becoming social, that I'm going through "Man-Oh-Pause".
Avatar n tn I am currently taking 150mg of Zoloft in the morning and 50mg of Trazodone at night. At first I was only taking Zoloft and had minimal side-effects, but was having trouble sleeping so my Dr. prescribed Trazodone. Since taking the Trazodone I have been having night sweats almost every night. I wake up freezing cold and soaking wet and have to change my clothes before I can go back to sleep. I am wondering if the drugs might be causing this, or if it is probably something else.
Avatar m tn None made a big diffence in my general depression but all had side effects that made day to day living difficult. My question is: what's next? What drug will they try next? If my MD isn't concerned and thinks that it's just dry skin should I go back on Wellburtin? I don't know........seems like life might be easier to deal with the day to day blues rather than the unknowns of pysch drugs. Thanks for letting me rant. Thom.
Avatar f tn May I remind you that one of the common side effects of Zoloft is confusion. Anyway, hopefully some of this info is helpful. Is your depression hereditary ? My depression is hereditary.The best of luck.
Avatar f tn Does anyone have any idea what this may be? Can this be a side affect of Zoloft? Can this be cured? Any meds can take this sensation away? I have been taking it for a week and a half and I have never felt anything like thisI am going crazy! It's Friday. I have a doctor appointment on Monday, but I can't imagine suffering like this all weekend without knowing what I am up against. I feel like I am losing my mind!
Avatar f tn This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088. The information here came from an article that may help in the future for you, i will give you the URL. http://www.rxlist.com/lamictal-drug/patient-images-side-effects.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Celexa and adderall together for about a year now and things have been working great. My only problem has been the sexual side-effects which have made my sex drive almost nothing. Because I entered into a serious relationship within these past couple months my doctor and I started discussing potential drugs that would increase my libido. She suggested Buspar. However, I have only been taking Buspar for two days and feel like it is having a counteractive affect on my adderall.
Avatar n tn I couldn't control my thoughts and couldn't concentrate and I was tired when I got up in the mornings. I saw a psychiatrist who put me on fluoxetine and paroxetine. I had side effects like drowsiness and headaches so I stopped the medication after 2 months. Then I started enjoying work and thought the depression will go away. But 2 years back I had bad sleeping problems so I saw my psychiatrist again. He put me on Venlafaxine (Effexor) 37.5 mg and increased to 75 mg.
Avatar f tn maybe get on an ad like zoloft....talk to your doc before tx on when to bring in rescue drugs...like procrit when low hgb...what he/she considers low hgb...looking back i would have talked to my doctor more before tx...wash your bedding with water...don't use dryer sheets..rinse your cloths real good...get a mild soap... get a cap and good sunglasses...a soft toothbrush.....and soft food...eat extra vitamin d 3..and look into any vitamins you should take....
789911 tn?1368640383 maybe someone who is wondering might see something they havnt tried yet and could ask their doc about it.
Avatar f tn -very rapid, pounding heartbeat -shocks (like sparks) in my nervous system -diarheah -brain shivers -insomnia -panick attacks Since being weaned off, it has been about 3 weeks now of terrible withdrawal symptoms, although they are finally diminishing slightly. I think the duration of the symptoms would be based on how your Dr. is decreasing your dosage & what dose you are on now. For me, i have not been able to function, cannot work & only leave the house if i have to.
