Hi, severe or persistent headaches and vision changes are listed as severe side effects and warrant immediate medical advice. Please get in touch with your doctor or local ER asap to get advice and treatment. I'm sure you will be OK but best to be safe than sorry...

Also, Zoloft causes autonomic nervous system symptoms, such as sweating, dry mouth and pupil dilatation. This causes light sensitivity and head ache. In this case glasses with glare proofing and sunglasses help in this case. It is worth an evaluation by a dr to determine which this is.

Peace and feel better, call on Monday, don't wait.

These sides are considered serious enough to have you contact the prescribing physician right away. Please do so. Hope this helps.
