 1  Anxiety and depression I'm only in my first 2 weeks of taking this so can't judge it just yet. I have taken it previously and it worked great. I do not like the side effects nausea, loss of appetite and having constant racing thoughts I'm praying this med works again for me as it helped in the past. I don't know why I keep looking up side effects as maybe that's not helping but I just need some kind of release from this constant way of life F 40 2 days

 5  Anxiety and Depression loss of libido, mild drowsiness, mild muscle twitches. Completely changed my life. Intrusive/suicidal thoughts stopped, doom spirals stopped... I stopped worrying and started living. 50mg/day is all it took. Stick it out. It took about 4 weeks for it to REALLY start working. Say goodbye to your sex drive however, but it's worth it if you ask me. M 21 3 months

 5  Anxiety, disordered sleep Brief nausea for a day or two. I had been suffering from chronic anxiety and delayed sleep onset / sleep maintenance disorder since I was a teenager. I existed in a state of chronic sleep deprivation, emotional incontinence, and anxiety bordering on paranoia. No amount of conservative therapy seemed to help. Sertraline helped me achieve a sense of normalcy that I've never felt in my life. I feel like I can be a functioning adult. I no longer have random heart palpitations or doom spirals, I no longer take over an hour to fall asleep, and I no longer wake up 3+ times in the night with a racing heart. Small things that used to occupy all of my mental and emotional energy no longer bother me. I have my life back. M 31 2 years

 1  Extreme anxiety from another med Racing heart, depersonalization and derealization. I felt like I wasn't even here. Memory problems. Sexual dysfunction. Depression, flat effect. I only took this once. Unbelievable!! Side effects are crazy. I was only trying to help myself but instead permanently damaged myself. Don't take this shit. If anyone has healed from an SSRI of one dose please contact me or if anything helped you. F 22 1 days

 1  Anxiety I took the non therapeutic dose of 25mg. Doctor prescribed 50mg but I asked for a smaller dose just in case I won't tolerate. After I took the dose, I went to shower and stared to feel sick. I threw up and fell on the floor bagging God to not let me die this way. Horrible experience. Never again. F 44 1 days

 5  Anxiety , insomnia A few nights of discomfort - hot flushes, restlessness, insomnia got worse Despite all my side effects I started to feel the difference a few days after I started taking this drug. My mind stopped racing like crazy and bad thoughts (especially at night) stopped torturing me. I feel calm and think clearly. I found it better for me to take this medicine in the morning with breakfast, because it makes me very energetic initially and it's perfect for the morning, as it doesn't affect my sleep. My insomnia got much better with this drug. I can fall asleep without sleep aid tablets and feel good in the morning. I still wake up at night and in take me a while fall asleep, however I feel a dramatic change. F 37 2 weeks

 5  Extreme anxiety, panic attacks and The first few weeks I had mild headaches, nausea, dry mouth, diarrhea. Anxiety did get a little worse before it got better. I suffered for years with extreme anxiety, panic attacks and depression to the point I hated to leave the house, drive around town (at the thought of getting killed in an accident). I kept my children away from so many things because I feared it would hurt them. My heart would race so fast and hard that I would have to call family or friends to calm me down. I was easily frustrated with every little thing. I used so many excuses not to go anywhere or socialize with anyone. I cried a great deal randomly for no reason. It was zoloft that gave me my life back. Thankful for this medication in so many ways. My children and husband finally have the old me back, the best me. It did take over a month to see full affects, but it is working a great deal for me. I no longer suffer heart racing anxiety, severe panic attacks or depression. I am much happier with myself and my life than I was years ago. I love the new me, all thanks to ZOLOFT! Give it a chance, don't give up. Some may take a few months before seeing full affects. I did get discouraged the first 3 weeks because I felt it wasn't doing much. But my husband pushed me. And thankful he did. F 32 1 months

 3  Depression At first I went into mild mania. It was enjoyable, but I would crash into depression after several days. Doc added Seroquel as a mood stabilizer and the cycling stopped. I felt very hyper for four months as it was very stimulating I had horrible depression because I was eating foods that would give me depression. As long as I avoided the foods I was okay, One day I had a severe sinus infection. Two courses of antibiotics must have killed enough bad gut bacteria. After the antibiotics I was able to eat whatever I wanted. The horrible depression left. I still take it for OCD, but Zoloft seems to be marginally effective for OCD. . F 56 16 years

 1  Chest tightness Horrific long lasting effects - took for only 5-6 weeks at low dose and been off it for 4 months and still suffer: severe anxiety, panic, depersonalization/derealization, brain fog, vision problems, inner dread, suicidal ideation, never ever any of had these before zoloft I went from a multi functional go go happy active and fit woman , mother, wife, neuroscientist (my occupation) who was just experiencing some chest tightness due to work stress , into a bedridden totally dysfunctional psycho woman. Don't know if I ll ever recover. I d love to hear from anyone who has survived Zoloft side effects... Stay away from Zoloft and I would say any SSRI F 44 45 days

 5  MDD/Anxiety increased anxiety, dry mouth, shaking, blurred vision, stomach distress, heart palpitations It took months until i found my therapeutic dose of Zoloft that finally worked for me! I used to screenshot and save all the positive reviews and i will read them thinking will i ever feel better! After I started zoloft, I thought i was going crazy, especially when i woke up In the morning. Tried to manage it and I would call the doctor of this is normal and he said yes, until the zoloft starts working! He suggested to take 0.5 mg Ativan when i was feeling really bad and anxious and it worked! There were good days and bad days during these months, the recovery was not linear. After a long time of dealing with low mood, and anxiety I wanted to come here and give some positive reviews for the people that are currently going though it! It will get better but please be patient with the medicine! I started with 25 mg, after 2 months went for 50mg then 75 mg and im staying at this dose for the next months! Im on month 6 now and feeling much better and calm! Also one thing is try not to pay attention over analyzing how you feel, and why you feel this way! It's all normal as your body/brain adjusts to the medicine! If you are not hungry or if you don't feel well, juat rest, eat when you feel hungry( for me it was best to eat in the evening). Try not to think about the next day! Learn to accept that this is only temporary and nothing will happen to you! It's just a matter on time until you feel yourself again and let the Zoloft F 29 5 months

ZOLOFT  (SERTRALINE HYDROCHLORIDE):  Sertraline is used to treat depression, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, social anxiety disorder (social phobia), and a severe form of premenstrual syndrome (premenstrual dysphoric disorder). This medication may improve your mood, sleep, appetite, and energy level and may help restore your interest in daily living. It may decrease fear, anxiety, unwanted thoughts, and the number of panic attacks. It may also reduce the urge to perform repeated tasks (compulsions such as hand-washing, counting, and checking) that interfere with daily living. Sertraline is known as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). It works by helping to restore the balance of a certain natural substance (serotonin) in the brain.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
