how would you know if you were allergic to Zoloft?
Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur when using Zoloft:
Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue)
Hi, by allergic you might mean adverse, not normal, common side effects. You might if you could add to your question and mention what you feel the symptons are. Theres a number that are considered to be serious, almost severe, loss of memory, rage, severe anxiety, stomach aches, etc. Most times when you feel a drug is not acting the way you believe it should be, in others words you really don't feel its acting the way it should, go with your instinct, and contact your doctor. Most side effects usually disappear within a few weeks of taking zoloft. I was on it for several years and did well on it. So, if you're worried, phone your doctor or pharmacist. Better to be safe, and it never hurts to ask. Best wishes to you,
I have been taking Zoloft for anxiety for about 2 years now. A few months before Christmas of 2016 I started getting hives and skin rash. Red bumps and or lines on various places. Mostly hands feet and arms. I work at a hospital and travel to various nursing homes. My boss told me she thought I had picked up scabies. I went to the Dr. He said that is what it loomed like it could be. I treated myself my he and everyone in my house. I also made my mom treat herself because my kids had slept at her house. A year later I still have this rash. Nobody in my home has ever had any other symptom like myself. I have to take Allegra twice a day to keep the itching away. I have racked my brain on what else this could possibly be. I have been trying to take myself off of Zoloft because of the weight I have gained. I was looking at other possible side effects and hives- rash came up. I have not taken Zoloft at all for the last 3 days. Is there anyone out there that has had a similar story. I am desperate for answers! Could it be the Zoloft that has had me broke out for this long??
