I am scared to take medication (zoloft). What are some of the bad side effects?

Sedation: There are many possible side effects although they are usually relatively mild. The more common would include sedation, increased yawning, decreased energy, changes in concentration, nausea, diarrhea, weight gain and increased sweating. Not everyone gets these side effects and some get very little in the way of side effects. I would talk with the prescribing physician about your concerns!
