I have been on Zoloft (sertraline) 12.5mg for 3 weeks with the most horrible side effects. I no longer want to take this medicine. How do I get off of it?
Talk w/doctor: First, i suggest talking with your doctor about your decision. The zoloft (sertraline) must have been prescribed because of some symptoms you were having, and these may still need treatment even if zoloft (sertraline) is not the best option for you. You also haven't mentioned what "horrible side effects" you're experiencing -- but i'm sure your doctor would want to know so that something more helpful can be given. ...Read more
About to increase my Zoloft (sertraline) dose from 50mg to 75mg. Will the sexual side effects get worse or stay the same usually?
Not much difference: Sexual side effects on SSRIs are generally dose related, but going from 50-75mg of Zoloft (sertraline) is not big enough to make much difference.

My pdoc said that i can up the Zoloft (sertraline) dose from 150 to 200mg if i feel 150 doesn't help enough. Would upping it be wise? (i had 0 side effects so far)
Zoloft (sertraline): Zoloft (sertraline) can be raised to 200mg safely, in general -- but i'm wondering what the diagnosis is? You list "abnormally high sex drive"? Sometimes this can indicate a mood disorder with hypomania or mania -- and taking zoloft (sertraline) without a mood stabilizer can worsen that. I suggest consulting with a psychiatrist about your diagnosis and your medication. There may be more effective options for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
