I'm concerned because the doctors want me to take zoloft (sertraline). I am a little nervous about taking it. Anyone have side effects?

All medications have. Potential for side effects but that doesn't mean that a person will necessarily experience them. Potential side effects include loose bowel movements, heartburn, decreased libido or other sexual side effects, difficulty sleeping, feeling more sleepy, feeling more anxious; change in appetite. Most of my patients tolerate the medication well. A trial of medication is just that - a trial. Take care.
