Is it okay that I am concerned about these Zoloft (sertraline) side effects?

Is it okay that I am concerned about these Zoloft (sertraline) side effects?

Caution is good: A healthy level of caution/concern is a good thing. Most patients who experience side effects with zoloft (sertraline) will have them early on and often they are temporary. With a little time they may go away as you adjust to the medication. To expect side effects to occur spontaneously later in treatment when no changes of dose or meds are made would be not advised since this would be highly unusual. ...Read more

Worried about taking Cerazette and its side effects. Can they be serious?

Worried about taking Cerazette and its side effects. Can they be serious?

Side effects: dear kermitsf1, Interesting that you are from New Jersey which happens to be in the United States where Cerazette is not "approved." Why not? As far as I know, since it is a simple progesterone and not patentable, no one wants to spend the bucks to get it through FDA. That's why you and others like you can't ask your doctor. Ask your politicians why can't we use a drug safe in other countries! ...Read more

Can i take microlite pill while on implanon to stop bleeding and is there side effects? I am worried i will have bad side effects as I am goin on hols

Yes: You can take a combined estrogen/levonogesterol pill when on implanon, in fact, doctors may recommend this to help with some of the breakthrough bleeding that can occur while on implanon. At your age, the only possible side effect would be an increased risk of blood clot, but only likely if md said you were at increased risk for blood clot, or had previous liver tumor. Otherwise, you're fine! ...Read more
