I was on paxil for 6 months in the past but the side effects were too much for me. I started with 25 mg of zoloft in August and in October started 50 mg. My first side effects were headaches for about 2 weeks and really bad dry mouth and a slight 'zombie' feeling. My doc said to build up a tolerance.
Once that went away I was ok w/ the exception of the dry mouth/bad breath. I started to feel anxious again (easily irritated) and I increased the dosage to 25 mgs twice a day. Then about 2 weeks after that I was able to stand 50 mgs before bed once a day
I've been on 50 mgs for about 2 months now and recently started having tinnitis in my left ear and now it's in my right. I will be contacting my doctor next week to see if it will wear off.
The most important thing I can tell you is get therapy while on meds. The combo is what helps you get off the meds.
