I have a cogenital heart birth defect (MVP). I have been prescribed .50 mg Zoloft and 5 mg of Abilify. What are the side effects? Will this cause problems with the MVP. What are the long term effects of use?

A quick review of the research results says there should not be a problem. Call your cardiologist and get input from an expert.
I agree with ron man, ask a cardiologist regarding your mitral valve prolapse. But you need to take care of your head issues, seems you've got almost as many as I do.. If I don't take my psych meds, I start with heart palpitations and they aren't fun with my atrial conduction delay. I can't deal without my head meds, I really don't believe you will have a problem with the meds. What are your alternatives? Think. Let the appropriate docs worry about things. You work on you.
Hoping and praying for you and your health.
I don't understand what a psychiatric meds has to do with physiological issues like MVP. The combination of these two drugs (Zoloft for depression and Abilify for mood stabilizing) seems to me as treatment for Bipolar Disorder.
Anyway my experience with Zoloft of its side effects: Tiredness and fatigue, nausea, lack of appetite, and delay in ejaculation, so it made me last longer.
These side effects except the sexual ones, ease within 2 weeks and might dismiss. I recommend you take Zoloft before bed time, since it makes you tired.
