I just started Zoloft for OCD this morning. I am very nauseated. Will this go away? Is there anything I can do to lessen the side effects?

Thanks!!

P.S. I'm new to this forum. I've been a Crohn's member for awhile, but now I've been told I have OCD. Just lovely!
Crohn's Diagnosed in 1996.
Currently on Humira - One syringe every other week.
Now in remission.
Have tried Prednisone, Pentasa, Flagyl, Cipro, and Imuran in the Past - they aren't effective now.
Hospitalized only once, but that was enough!

Hello Mimi,

Welcome to the A & P  forum.  Your physician should have told you the Zoloft could make you  feel queezy and nauseous. Most of the meds will have some side effects when you first start them and your PCP should go over every new med that is prescribed.  If you feel you cannot tolerate the side effect or it becomes worse, please call your PCP.

I am so sorry your feeling nasty on the med.  I hope others will jump in here with some advice for you .

Take care
KItt

Hi Mimi, Welcome to A/P

The Zoloft can be really harsh for up to three weeks, but the side effects do go away.  If they don't - go yell at you doctor!! I'm sorry you have been diagnosed with OCD...I have that too, if you have any queries you don't want to post please email me and we can have a chat, wishing you all the best Mimi, take care and know we are here to support you xx bless ya!

Mimi,

Good luck with the Zoloft. As others have pointed out, if you feel it's not the right med for you, talk with your doctor about a different one. There are quite a few out there, and they don't all react the same way for everyone. For instance, I had terrible insomnia when trying Zoloft, and decided that that was just making my other problems worse, not better. My doctor switched me to something else, and it works as predicted.

Just about any medication for any condition will come with side effects, and sometimes it can take a few weeks for the adjustment period to end. Again, talk with your doctor or pharmacist about the side effects and how quickly they should end.

Hang in there!
