Hi carisab!, I remember having some mild nausea when I first started Zoloft some time ago, but it only lasted a few days. You may want to contact your doctor if the symptoms do not go away. You may either need something for your nausea( phenergan) or possibly have your medication changed. The nausea should not last more than a few days. Nobody wants to suffer with nausea that long and they do not have too! So please contact your doctor so that youi can get some relief. I am so sorry that you are going through this. I wish you the best. Let us know how you are doing. Sweetie Pie
I wish I could answer that. I have been on it for one week and been terribly nauseous and suffer from sleeplessness as well. I was originally on zoloft about 5 years ago and it did very well for me and I do not remember suffering any side effects. I actually thought that I no longer needed Zoloft and went off for several months. Now, I am back and wish I never would have quit. If I find something that works for me, I will let you know. Good Luck!
I just started taking Zoloft almost a week ago. I cannot sleep, when I close my eyes and lay down I feel like the room is moving. I feel nauseous and rapid heart beat. I wish I could tell you it will go away, I am new to it. But I really dont like it. I am thinking of calling the doctor Monday.
I started Zoloft 3 weeks ago on 12.5 mg for 4 days and increased to 25mg for a week, then 37.5 for 4 days and I just started 50mgs last night. With every increase I have had the nausea and felt tired during the day and yawned a lot but all of this side effects subside right about when I'm ready to increase. The nausea is worse with the 50mgs so far but I don't think it will take long to subside. For the insomnia I take hydroxyzine which was prescribed to me for panic attacks but I have found that it works well for the restless legs and sleeplessness and I wake up only slightly drowsy.
