Customer Question

I have been on 1/2 Zoloft(25mg) for one week and just began taking one whole one yesterday. Today has been very rough. I am a woman of 73 in otherwise good health except for anxiety and would like to know what the side effects for me would be. I am very sensitive to most drugs(side effects) so I know I am probably going to have to deal with them with Zoloft.
Your answer would be very much appreciated. Thank You. Merrilee

If you had no side effects on 25 mg zoloft I would expect you would have none on 50 mg after being on the lower dose for a whole week. This medication has very few side effects, fatigue is common but should be gone by now. I doubt you will develop any side effects at all.
