Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

These are side effects from zoloft --known ones.

You will need to go back to 50 mg daily since you were stable on that.

These symptoms should subside in 2-3 weeks.

Please discuss with your doctor also.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
