zoloft

Avatar f tn i take prozac and had NO side effects at all and gradually felt better. i was told that Zoloft was the best and tried it after 2 months of night sweats, insomnia and speed like effects i did some research and was suprised at how much more side effects zoloft has compared to other ssris. get off of it now and try another ssri, dont put up with tremors and dont mask the side effects with xanax. that is my personal opinion.
Avatar n tn I have been on Zoloft for 6 weeks and have since noticed an increased odor from the vaginal area not related to my period. Could there be a connection?
Avatar f tn drowsiness, tremor, fatigue, diarrhea, dyspepsia, nausea, insomnia, loose stools, dizziness, headache, paresthesia, delayed ejaculation, ejaculation failure, xerostomia, anorexia, diaphoresis, and decreased libido. Other side effects include: agitation, pain, vomiting, abdominal pain, anxiety, hypouricemia, and malaise. See below for a comprehensive list of adverse effects.
17568 tn?1424977159 I have been on 25mg for almost two weeks and have noticed that my heart rate has slowed down (in between 55-60 beat where it is usually between 65-80 resting). I am fairly active and what other side effects should I beaware of while taking zoloft (I am taking it for anxiety).
Avatar n tn I took Zoloft for about five years and it was great for me -- minimal side effects that passed in a week or two, good anti-depressant effect. 50 mg is a very low dose (I was up to 200 mg at one point). I didn't have any weight gain other. One piece of advice I would give you is to try the medication and not think about it too much. It takes 4 - 6 weeks for to get the full effect so during that time, take the pill and don't worry about it.
Avatar n tn I've been on zoloft now for a week, and the last four nights have been real rough. I feel like I have brain damage, and the zoloft has been accompanied by tremor, headaches, and fear of dying. What should I do? I've been told it takes awhile to get used to the medication (at least two weeks.) I also heard that a discontinuance of zoloft can cause nausea. Please help.
Avatar n tn There is a tendency for the familial tremor to persist with Zoloft but that can be controlled by adding another medication, Klonopin. (or a beta blocker like propanonolol). Serzone would also work. Another strategy would be to deal directly with the stress that triggers the tremor. Our MasteringStress online program might help you pinpoint the issue and deal with it actively.
Avatar n tn Propranolol and lorazepam both also can help with tremor (and the internal tremor=akathasia) which is related in part form the Zoloft. This situation is not uncommon with this type of treatment. It does nt sound like you need to see a neurologist but, I do recommend that you discuss these concerns further with your psychiatrist who may be able to make more specific adjustments in your treament. I hope this was helpful.
Avatar n tn I decided to go back on the Zoloft, after two days of being back on the Zoloft my symptoms lessned. Then I read about Zoloft side effects and withdrawal symptoms. The heart pounding was listed as a side effect of Zoloft, not a top 5 side effect, but a side effect. Then I read if you stop all of a sudden, especially if you had taken the medicine for at least one week, you can get withdrawal symptoms, and they read just as I described them above.
Avatar m tn I've noticed side effects like insomnia, loss of appetite, tremor/shakey, headache, nausea, fatigue and such. I've also noticed something different about my left foot. it feels very weird. it feels kinda like it wants to move on its own. at first it didn't, but now my toes kind of just twitch a little. it doesn't bother me to walk or anything. I feel it more when i'm laying down or just relaxed. i'm a little concerned that it might get worse when i move up doses.
Avatar f tn When I began Zoloft, I started off at 50mg but didn't really notice a change in the way I felt until I was up to 150mg. I had some weird side effects at first, but I stuck it out and I'm very glad I did. Zoloft has been the best antidepressant for me with the fewest side effects and excellent results. The best thing you can do if you have questions or concerns about how you're feeling while taking any kind of psychotropic med is to call your doctor and discuss it with them.
Avatar f tn Me too I have internal shaking all over my body. It all started 7 months ago. I had one or 2 night internal shaking per week at first and I thought, I was dreaming about this shaking. And then, I had more frequent shaking during the night and I couldn't sleep. It keep going worst as now it is each night and it does it now during the day. Sort of speak it is 24/7 a day... with few moments being free of this internal shaking, vibration sensation. I am so tired of it.
Avatar n tn Is it safe to take Xanax and Zoloft together? and what are the possible side effects? Weight gain?
Avatar n tn 4-5 weeks of hellish side effects (as you described) is too long, since these side-effects are what are called "self-limiting" in that they should get better -- not worse -- with time. As for the tremor, if you didn't have before you started the Zoloft, chances are Zoloft is the culprit.
Avatar f tn Zoloft or Sertraline belongs to a class of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) which is indicated for treating depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The most common side effects of sertraline are sleepiness, nervousness, insomnia, dizziness, nausea, tremor, skin rash, upset stomach, loss of appetite, headache, diarrhea, dry mouth and weight loss.
Avatar f tn It says on the list of side effects that tremors are a possible side effect. Do you plan to stay on Zoloft?
1756199 tn?1312599625 should i continue to take Zoloft with these given side effects? What are somethings i can do or take for sleeping (tried mediation, Prefer Herbal Products ie. Teas)? Should i go to the hospital if lack of sleep comes up again?
Avatar n tn you should not have to take a benzo to tolerate the side effects of the Zoloft, that is absurd. the insomnia is the worst side effect as well as the night sweats. try another med with the help of your doctor.
Avatar f tn I am happy to see you are doing better. I hope to join you soon! =) I experienced some side effects on Zoloft, mainly the tremor, but I felt a huge relief from depression & somewhat with my anxiety. I couldn't take the tremor. It was having an impact on my life, especially when trying to eat dinner. I know it wasn't just in my mind as it is stated under side effects "tremors". I plan to give the Lex 4 weeks. Congrats on getting back to your old/new self.
Avatar n tn All tests MRI, EEG blood work all ok and doctor wants to put me on a SSRI Cymbalta since the beta blocker is not completely blocking reaction. Cymbalta's side effects, reactions stories are worse than what I have now! I do not want to take it, doc said I have no choices. Has anyone ever had a reaction like this? How did you ever get rid of it? I am now working with a psychologist (non MD) for the emotional stress this is causing but i have no idea how to fix the physical symptoms!
Avatar f tn Cymbalta does not cause tardive so an anti-Parkinsonian medication which can might be of concern as a side effect pill. When I had conventional extra pyramidal side effects, I found Atenolol to be most of help. Yes it lowers blood pressure but it helps with the symptoms you describe.
Avatar n tn All the SSRI meds have listed as possible side-effects anxiety, depression and one that can be bad is akathisia. Akathisia is greek for can't sit still. It can be what causes agitation, violence, Have a enzyme test for P450/CYP2D6. If these this enzyme is weak in your body then you will have a build up of the drug in your system. If you body does not metabolize the drug then you have a toxic build up much like an overdose.
1042670 tn?1253372663 Hi, The causes of your symptoms could be Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Anemia, Acid base imbalance, Chemical poisoning, Herbal agent overdose (Ginseng), Multiple sclerosis, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Magnesium deficiency or adverse effect of medications. Please consult a physician for complete examination and investigations. Please go for EKG, Holter’s test, MRI of the brain and spine and EMG and nerve conduction studies to help in the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn I asked if I could be weaned because I heard of the nasty withdrawal side effects, but he said that it would make no difference. This is my 4th night off the drug, and I am losing my mind. I am constantly seeing things moving out of the corner of my eyes (although nothing is there), and hearing the most horrible noises, especially when I move my eyes or head, and I have never screamed so much in my life as I have the past 3 days, (literally - it stops the noises for a while).
Avatar n tn You may really need the Klonopin for your condition and you will be able to drop the Elavil since Klonopin and Ultram should solve the pain, insomnia and depression problems. I have no side effects from either drug, but again all benzos are tough to withdraw from completely. I tried and could not do it. Ultram is a non-narcotic pain killer and works great for me. I am on the minimal dose 50 mg's every six hours as needed.

Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with OCD and put on Zoloft, 25 mg for one week and then 50 mg for the next upcoming year. I have taken Zoloft 25mg for the past 3 days and suffered terrible side effects. The worst is nervousness, that wakes me up in the middle of the night, along with tremor. Sometimes, I get hot flashes but it has been better lately. I have no appetite, therefore it is very difficult to eat. I also suffer dry mouth at the same time of nervousness and tremor.
Avatar m tn I have had pretty much every test under the sun (HIV, MRIs, EMGs, EEGs, Sleep Studies, Western Blot, and the list goes on and on) and everything has come back normal except for 1 and I will go into that further down. Ok, so let's get on to my symptoms. At times I have this feeling of an inner tremor of sorts. It is real hard to explain to someone who hasn't felt it but I would correlate it to having an extreme feeling of a caffeine buzz.
