Side Effects Of Withdrawal From Zoloft
I have taken one 50mg dose of Zoloft (sertraline) but had terrible side effects. Will I have withdrawal if I stop taking it?
Can I stop 50mg Zoloft after 10 days and go back on Paxil (paroxetine) 12.5mg CR?

Talk to your psychiatrist about safe ways of doing a cross-over without increasing your risk for Serotonin Syndrome. Medical supervision is needed when changing psychotropic medications or medication doses, as serious consequences can occur. ...Read more

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

Bradycardia?: I assume by "low pulse" you mean an inappropriately slow heart rate, or "bradycardia".

HOWEVER, since it became available, cases of associated bradycardia have been reported & label was updated appropriately. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Many possible: Both zoloft (sertraline) and advair have possible side-effects. However, it may be especially worth mentioning that the anti-asthma medication advair combines a beta-agonist and a steroid. Both of these may affect mood, especially the former, which can cause nervousness and a "hyper" feeling. If zoloft (sertraline) is being taken for anxiety, the advair may work against it somewhat. Ask your doc if you are concerned. ...Read more
