I was just put on Zoloft 50mg for social anxiety, OCD, etc and I'm 16 years old. I'm kind of scared to see what side effects I will experience. How long does it usually take for side effects to kick in when you first start taking it? I have multiple, important commitments (prom!) in the next two weeks and I'm concerned about how I'm going to feel :/ Due to my anxiety, I have missed all of the possible days I can before they take legal action so if I'm sick-I have no choice. I am looking forward to the hopeful long term effects (reduced anxiety, etc). Although, I'm concerned that I'm going to have difficulties pushing through the side effects to get the good effects.
