Please get in touch with your doctor right away. I can not diagnose you. However a couple of things may have happened that might be associated with the zoloft
). I don't know what the zoloft (sertraline) is being prescribed for or what your mental and or medical history is. I also don't know how high your dose is. I am concerned by your description of taking medication and developing sped up speech and highs and lows. Your sped up speech and panic may be due to anxiety
. There is also a possibility that taking the zoloft (sertraline) could have triggered hypomania
or mania. Symptoms of mania or hypomania could include either elation or agitation
, racing thoughts, thoughts shifting rapidly from one subject to another, confusion, a decreased need for sleep
, talking more or talking faster, taking risks that aren't normal for you and a really high energy level
. If this has occured, it can be serious.
On the other hand, sometimes zoloft (sertraline) and the class of drugs called serotonin
reuptake inhibitors can lead a person to feel nervous, and restless. You may get a headache
or be more tense. You might experience loose bowel
movements. Your body and my mind can also reacte negatively if a medication is abruptly stopped.
Ok, my biggest worry is your statement "i need to continue with life but am so exhausted and feel like i cant." if you are having thoughts of taking your life, it is imperative that you get emergency assistance. If you have a plan of how you could kill yourself and an urge to carry it out, you need to be seen at the emergency room right away. Call 911 if you need to.
The long and short of it, - get help now. You are worth it.
