Very low dose!: Although possible i wonder if what you are experiencing is do to zoloft (sertraline) at all. However, how much Acetaminophen and ibuprophen are you taking/day? Aceta can cause liver damage and ibup kidney and mixed together one has to be more vigilant. Have you had liver and kidney blood work done recently and a urinalysis? Discuss w/fmd. Immediate onset after one dose possible if allergic but usually w/rash.
