Customer Question

I think I confused you. I was on 1/2 of a 25mg Zoloft while being weaned off of Remeron. I am now on the full 25mg Zoloft.
I should have told you that I am also on Xanax 0.05, four times a day and Inderol 20mg, twice a day for anxiety. I have been on them for quite awhile now.I also am on Trileptal 150 mg for trigeminal neuralgia . I don't know if this interfers with the other drugs or not.Please respond.

What is your question about this?

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 29 days ago.

are you having any side effects yet?

Customer: replied 29 days ago.
My question is, what side effects can I expect from Zoloft. I am very suseptable to most drugs as far as side effects go. I have not been feeling well since I have been on drugs for this anxiety with these drugs (Xanax, Inderol and now Zoloft). I don't know if it is the drugs or the anxiety causing my discomfort. I still have anxiety, nausea, breatheless, sleepy, and not leaving my home for some time now, which concerns me the most. I sleep pretty well but wake up every morning and start to get the shakes.If you have any answers for me, I'd be so grateful. Thank you
