Side effects: Talk to your doctor about the side effect profile of sertraline and you shall see that these symptoms are very common among users.

If you only drink 3-5 cups of liquid a day (I have a desk job at an office) could this lead to dehydration and cause frequent lightheaded/dizziness?

If you only drink 3-5 cups of liquid a day (I have a desk job at an office) could this lead to dehydration and cause frequent lightheaded/dizziness?

How much water?: The right amount to drink depends on metabolism, diet, activity, & weather. The common advice of 8 glasses daily is not supported by science. The body tells you when to drink water: thirst. Symptoms of low blood pressure may include lightheadedness. Some young women need to drink more water and eat some salt to manage this.

Today I ran a mile and I felt fine for about 3 hours, but now I have a headache, I'm dizzy and I feel like throwing up. I'm not dehydrated, I drink water all day, so why do I feel like this?

Sounds like low BP: Those symptoms are often associated with a low blood pressure. It's easy to check...Take your BP sitting and standing. If the BP decreases to below a systolic (upper number) of approximately 90 with standing, it's consistent with postural hypotension (low BP upon standing). Usually, it will correct with drinking more fluids. Gatorade has salt in it and will raise the bp. ...Read more

If I have described the situation correctly, it would be worthwhile to get checked out. ...Read more
