Common Side Effects of Zoloft
Some people may experience side effects from Zoloft® such as:
  • Nausea, vomiting, or indigestion
  • Diarrhea
  • Dry mouth
  • Headache
  • Nervousness
  • Shakiness
  • Sore throat
  • Changes in libido or sexual function
  • Increased sweating
Zoloft® can cause drowsiness, dizziness, and feeling very tired. Avoid driving or operating heavy machinery until you know how Zoloft® affects you. Avoid drinking alcohol because it may increase these symptoms and interfere with the way that Zoloft® works in your body.

Seek help right away or call 911 if an emergency if you experience more serious side effects such as:
  • Seizures or convulsions
  • Feelings of extreme energy, severe trouble sleeping, racing thoughts, reckless behavior, unusually grand ideas, excessive happiness or irritability, or talking more or faster than usual
  • Fever, sweating, confusion, irregular heartbeat, and muscle stiffness
  • Unusual bleeding or bruising
  • Hallucinations, agitation, or changes in mental status
  • Coordination problems, muscle twitching, or muscle rigidity
  • Racing heartbeat, or high or low blood pressure
A small number of people have become suicidal after taking Zoloft®. This is more common in people younger than age 25. It is important for you to be aware of this risk while taking Zoloft®. Report any extreme changes in your mood or any suicidal impulses, thoughts, or actions or call 911 if an emergency.

Zoloft® is not for everyone. Before taking Zoloft® talk with your doctor about any health conditions you have had in the past, including:
  • Seizure disorders
  • Heart, liver, or kidney disease
  • Bleeding or blood-clotting disorders
  • Bipolar or manic disorders
  • Suicidal thoughts
Women who are pregnant, breast-feeding, or planning to become pregnant should talk with their doctors about taking Zoloft®. It is important to discuss with your doctor the benefits as well as the risks of treating your condition during pregnancy. If you become pregnant while taking Zoloft®, notify your doctor.

Zoloft® can cause dangerous interactions with some medicines including other prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines, dietary supplements and herbal supplements. Give your doctor an up-to-date list of all medicines you take. Your doctor will want to make sure all your medicines are safe to take with Zoloft®.

Also, tell your doctor about any allergies that you have. The dropper used to measure the liquid form of Zoloft® contains a derivative of latex, which some people may be sensitive to.
