Zoloft Weightloss and Abilify
I also have to take Diflucan/flucanozole occaisionally while taking Zoloft...never any problems.

Zoloft saved my life. Outside of my wonderful husband it is the thing in life I am most grateful for. Much better than Prozac where I always felt medicated.It is not for everyone but if doc recommends it, I would try it. Just pay attention and give it some time and if you have any side effects do not wait to address them...do it immediately.

Zoloft and neck stiffness
Yes, I also take Zoloft and have bad neck and back stiffness. It does seem to subside after awhile. Try heat and stretches...good luck.
