Zoloft Weightloss and Abilify

I started taking Zoloft about 3 weeks ago. I have been suffering with severe, medical depression, social anxiety and feelings of dread. I have good reasons to be depressed, as my Mom died of cancer 4 years ago, and I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer 2 years ago. Now I'm post menopausal at 39 and just can't cope. Immediately after taking Zoloft I began to feel good. Depression had become physically debilitating and I gained a lot I weight. I have also noticed a lack of desire for food, and have

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.

heart pounding
OMG you have just helped me - I get the racing heart, and now that I think about it, its after a couple of glasses of coke zero
Amy  |  August 20, 2014
I find I get way more severe reaction to caffeine when I am on Zoloft. Have to drink caffeine free coke!
Otherwise I get a racing heart, exactly like a panic attack. Took me ages to figure out, I thought they were panic attacks!

Zoloft and neck stiffness
I put mine neck ache down to stress, but if it is a common side affect of Zoloft maybe I'm not super stressed
August 20, 2014
i am taking Mirtazapine and sometimes Lorazepam and sometimes xanax and I too get these stiff necks and just does not subside - i have had them for the last 2 months now - any advice?
rr98  |  July 14, 2014
Same thing with me I have horrible neck pain
And stiffness and a headache and I also take zoloft
Megan  |  June 27, 2014
I take Zoloft and had horrible neck pain from out of no where.. Wonder if it's from that my dr prescribed my flexerol for it.
May 28, 2014
Same thing, neck pain for months now. Diagnosed for RA now, and prescribed Methortexrate.
mike  |  May 6, 2014
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.

shaky hands
Hi, I have a 12 yr old son...just hope you get better and that u have some people in your life who love u as much as I love my son. If u don't, keep looking, you will find people who care. Good luck, and if the Zoloft feels bad for you, tell your dr. I'll be hoping you are ok. ;-))
Jaipria  |  June 22, 2014
Im glad Zoloft has helped with your depression however it didnt help with mine. I would talk with your doctor about the shaky hands. I stopped taking Zoloft awhile ago and I still have shaky hands from it.
