I just started taking 50 mg of zoloft 5 days ago for GAD. I find that I am waking up a lot at night (which I can deal with) but I feel so jittery or nervous. I understand it takes time for the medicine to start to work and I really want to give it a fair chance but this nervousness is driving me crazy. I am just looking for some advice from someone with experience on how long this can take to go away. Thank you.

Hello cjbg. You'll be feeling more of the same for possibly another few days, might be a bit longer then the side effects, anxiety that you're going through will gradually ease up and disappear. Its a common one, so not to worry. Hope you do well on the drug, best of wishes and good health to you,pledge

I had to stop taking zoloft. I was only on 25 mg for about a week and a half. I don't want to be negative, but it did not work for me. I had bad feelings of impulsiveness and anxiety. Had to stop. I would talk to your doctor about how you're feeling. If you're not sleeping, especially. So many different drugs out there and some work better for others.
