Zoloft (sertraline) sweats: The whole class of ssri medications (including prozac, zoloft, paxil, (paroxetine) etc.) can cause night sweats, particularly as you are stopping or reducing the medication. Paxil (paroxetine) is the worst offender in this group. Some patients have this symptom even while taking the medication. Usually it will go away after a few weeks.
