8 months being on Zoloft 100mgs for anxiety and depression. At times I feel 100% me but I still have waves of anxiety/depression especially in the mornings then by afternoon I'm ok. Anyone else experience that? I also get waves of nausea. Could that just be a lasting side effect? Any input would be so appreciated. Thank you.
I took the same amount as you are currently when I was on Zoloft. I remember having that same issue, it wasn't a very bad amount of anxiety, but I could tell I wasn't feeling right when I would take it everyday. There are maybe two solutions for that: decrease your dose because sometimes if it's high it can cause side effects like that (I could be wrong, but I had the same issue currently while taking Wellbutrin XL) or switch to taking it at night before bed. As for the nausea, do you take it on an empty stomach at all? I know it's a dumb question, but that might have something to do with it. If it doesn't stop, I'd call your doctor as soon as you can to see what you can do to get around it. Hope this helps, and I hope you feel better soon!
