Hello, Brea! Racing heartbeat and high blood pressure have been reported infrequently as a side effect of starting Zoloft:
"Uncommon (0.1% to 1%): Hypertension, tachycardia"
Although these side effects often resolve within a few days to a week or so they should be reported to your doctor as you may need to discuss other medication options.
Best regards, Wild Cat
It happened to me when I first started I did discuss with my doctor and he said to continue now I'm a month in and no side affects at all. I'm actually feeling happier. But you should definitely talk with your doctor regarding any symptoms you are feeling.
Hope you get better soon.
