Zoloft Weightloss and Abilify
1747views
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.
debra  |  March 31, 2014
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.

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!

Same here - went on it once, (Budeprion XL) 3 weeks later got costochronitis... went on it a year later, and got the same result. After that, I had issues digesting gluten. I had no issues prior or took any medication prior.

Wellbutrin / Menstrual Cycle
2090views
I started taking Wellbutrin XL 300mg about a year ago. I'm quiet diligent in tracking my menstrual cycle and noticed after taking it for a few weeks that my period never came. I got the bloated feeling, cramps, swallon breasts but no period. Two weeks late, my period finally arrived. Since then I've had no problems at all though. My period is right on track every month. Guess it was just my body/hormone getting used to the medication.

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

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.

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.

Wellbutrin and Orgasms (the good and the bad)

OMG I thought it was just me. Was on it previously and noticed an increase in libido and orgasm strength. Went off it for 2 years and encountered very weak and hars to reach climax. Back on it again now and they are amazing again!
Jeannie  |  September 23, 2014
Hi Nicole, my names Jonathan. I know the feeling you are talking about it's become a real problem for me, but for me the weak orgasm or absence of the "peak" climax is ocuring for me while being on bupropion 300 xl. It was such a problem for me that I completely lost interest in even trying to have sexual relations or masturbation because it was too much work for very little results. The trade of was that it was working well on the depression and I noticed more energy, better outlook on things

It's okay, it's coming back but for me it was great before I stopped

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.
