Zoloft side effects may really be extreme and life-altering such as birth defects to newborns, suicidal thoughts and behaviors, psychosis, delusion, physical pain, sexual dysfunction and insomnia among others.

Zoloft, Paxil and other antidepressants are known to cause side effects that vary from person to person. For Paixl there have been claims of birth defects that were associated with its use. That is why the FDA has released a warning to caution people when using the drug.You can visit this link http://www.paxilbirthdefectlaw.com/paxil-fda-... to know more about it.

Zoloft does have side effects and at the beginning it probably wasn't always clearly stated to people. I think now it is and people should take these warnings seriously.

Wow, lots of desperate spammers in here. What's the agenda? Are you psychotherapists who have lost business due to patients having success on medications?

I took this horrible drug against me better nature because my GP informed me that it was a very gentle drug that would help me get through therapy. It was only ever going to be a short term thing. I took this medicine for 10 weeks.
It worked almost immediately. I stopped getting heart flutters, the panic attacks and hallucinatory anxiety attacks stopped.

However, after a while I got chronic stomach pains, everything I ingested left my body painfully after 15 minutes, even water or juice. I thought I had a tummy bug. Suffering severe dehydration and having so many medical tests to try to find what the poison was, turns out it was severe side effects. I pretty much couldn't stay out of the bathroom for 6 weeks, during which I stopped taking the Sertraline/zoloft product. A year later, the stomach and liver damage has not yet healed.

I'm glad to say my therapy was successful. I am happy in my life except for the lasting damage using this drug has left me with.

It changed the way my body behaves. I have used natural methods to heal the wounds from the constant bowel use. The IBS caused is kept under control with tumeric+cayenne+water solution. I can't party yet as my liver is still damaged. My energy levels are still low, My memory is sketchy. Because of the short term use of this drug I have been unfit for over year. I wish I had never used it.

Please look up natural ways to help your body heal. Pharmaceutical companies do not want to make you well. They want to make profit. I hope I get back to my usual energetic self soon.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
