I've been taking Zoloft (100mg) about a month now. The side effects, at first, were awful but I have adjusted and now they aren't so bad. I was prescribed Flovent as an emergancy fast acting inhaler for, what the doc described as, pre-asthma. I've never had a problem using the inhaler while on Zoloft but tonight is different and I don't know why :(
Shortly after using the inhaler, I felt light headed and... well, high. My energy level is through the roof. When I noticed I was hanging curtains, at 1:30am, I decided to sit down and relax lol. I don't know how to explain it, I just feel odd and it gives me the creeps. I'm sure I'll be fine in the morning and I should bring it up with my doc next time we meet but...
I figured I'd just vent a lil since it's now 2am and I have nothing better to do (though I'm contemplating doing the rest of the laundry, mopping, taking a walk around the neighborhood, giving the animals a bath, getting the side dishes ready for tomorrows dinner..I could go on and on)
I just can't settle down!!!! Le sigh.

Flovent is a steroid inhaler so it's no wonder it got you wired :) I had the same effect when I was on Albuterol for a bronchitis infection. It felt like I had a pot of coffee!
