Hi I quit Zoloft (sertraline) and have mild dizziness, just wondering why? Is it effecting my blood pressure? Was only on 25mg per day for 1 year. Thanks
Stopped sertraline: Unlear when or why u stopped setraline - which may be relevant. Sometimes when an SSRI is stopped, there may be a mild adjustment this change, and some pts report dizziness during this adjustment time.

I been on Risperdal and Zoloft (sertraline) for 3 weeks now and lately I can't sleep, concentrate, I feel constant pressure on my head, and anxiety. Is it normal?

Can hydroxyzine help with the head pressure symptom of a panic attack? I'm also taking Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg. Is this a good combination?
It can!: Hydroxyzine has a sedative effect, generally a very strong one depending on the dose. That is, the more Hydroxyzine the greater the sedation. Combining medications is always a process that deserves attention because you want to avoid interactions. In this case there is no concern with zoloft (sertraline) and hydroxyzine. However, you want to be careful with metoprolol and zoloft (sertraline). ...Read more

Alcohol can also temparily lower your blood pressure which may not be good to do with Inderal (propranolol) on board. ...Read more

I notice with my social anxiety I get head pressure. I'm currently on Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg. Will the Zoloft (sertraline) help with the head pressure or should I take tylonol?
Zoloft (sertraline): Zoloft can have headaches as a side effect. Anxiety can result in the same -- so assessing your baseline is important. Your doctor may be working gradually with the dose so that your body becomes accustomed to it, and any side effects dissipate. This may happen in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, you could take tylenol (acetaminophen) but no more than 3000 mg/day. Keep track of symptoms to share with doctor. ...Read more

There are two forms: Of CoQ10. Neither has been regulated by the FDA. (One form appears to have more antioxidant properties). Several conditions have been associated with low CoQ10 levels including HTN, heart failure, certain cancers, gingivitis, gastric ulcers, etc. Currently there has not been a consensus arrived at as to the BP lowering effects (due to lack of controlled studies). May affect Zoloft (sertraline) level a bit. ...Read more
