In brief: SSRIs

Zoloft or sertraline commonly results in nausea, dry mouth, upset stomach, constipation within the first several weeks, but these should go away.
Other side effects (less common) include sexual side effects (decreased interest, inability to have an orgasm), increased thoughts of suicide in those 25 and younger, blurred vision, abnormal bleeding among others.

The most important question is what side effects are you having?? Most medications cause few and fleeting side effects in most patients, but anything can happen with any one patient and any one medication. Talk with your doctor if you believe you are having side effects.
