Related to a question I asked earlier about when to take zoloft (sertraline). Do the side effects go away after the body gets used to the dosage and time change.

What symptoms? I usually tell patients to start 25 mgs with food at dinner. This accomplishes several things. It usually diminishes the effect of sedation, nausea and fatigue that can often occur when you start an ssri. Increase the dose every 5 to 7 days by 25 mgs. Until i see a therapeutic effect. At 100 mgs. I wait another two to four weeks so that treatment "catches up" to onside effects. Talk to yourdoc! Read more...

I have been on Zoloft (sertraline) 12.5mg for 3 weeks with the most horrible side effects. I no longer want to take this medicine. How do I get off of it?

Talk w/doctor. First, i suggest talking with your doctor about your decision. The zoloft (sertraline) must have been prescribed because of some symptoms you were having, and these may still need treatment even if zoloft (sertraline) is not the best option for you. You also haven't mentioned what "horrible side effects" you're experiencing -- but i'm sure your doctor would want to know so that something more helpful can be given. Read more...
