I took Zoloft last night for the first time. I woke up this morning with a severe headache and still got it. Tylenol has given some relief. Is this normal?
Erica; Yes that is possible but remember you can treat a headache however you would normally and these type side effects are only temporary that last for 1 to 2 weeks and then go away. And from then on it is just taking it until you reach your right blood level normally 6 to 8 weeks but most start to feel better before that. So please don't think any side effects you get right now are going to continue they will go away as I said. Chuck1957
Hi, Erica! Headaches are one of the most common side effects of starting antidepressants/anxiolytics and get better every day resolving in just a few days to a week or two:
Very common (10% or more): Headache (up to 22%), somnolence (up to 13%), dizziness (up to 12%),
"Side effects have been reported to be generally mild and transient. They are most common during the first 2 weeks of treatment and decrease in intensity and frequency with continued treatment. They generally do not lead to treatment cessation."
Best regards, Wildcat
