Well, this just sucks.  It took me months to screw up the courage to go and ask for help.  But I did.
 
50 mg. Zoloft once daily.  I'm having following symptoms.  Lack of appetite, and episodes of nausea so extreme that I've dry heaved.   (Fortunately, i had nothing to upchuck).  about 12 hours after taking it, I hit SUCH a low that I feel more angry and depressed than ever!  Sleep patterns are definitely weird, and the only thing I can motivate myself to do during Thanksgiving weekend, was watch movies on my computer, and take a shower.  Not at work today since I'm concerned that I'll just puke.
 
Have a call into the doctor to see about different meds, reducing dose, or nausea medication.  Wish me luck

Hi Bynnsk,

Yes you are right to call the doctor about this. I couldn't tolerate zoloft either. It helped mentally but got diarrhea so bad that I couldn't leave the house.

I hope that you find something that works for you. You deserve to have a happy and fullfilling life.

Keep posting, you have come to a good forum.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Bynnsk,
Welcome to  HealingWell. Was that the first dose you took of the med?
 
I agree with Karen, call your prescribing position as your side effects are causing you to feel worse and preenting you from going to work.
 
We are here for you.
Take care,

Kitt
