Are these Zoloft side effects?

- zoloft, depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, vertigo, social anxiety disorder, side effect, pressure
Day 5 at 25mg. Head feels full, getting painful head pressure, ground is moving, ground seems to raise under my feet. Dizzy.
Now all of these usually happen when my anxiety is bad and I'm thinking the zoloft is increasing my anxiety.
Anybody else had this happen with zoloft? Not waiting for 2-3 weeks of this if it is.

Also ocd is worse.
Hi, Jgo! These probably are side effects and they generally improve daily.
"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."
If you do decide to stop the Zoloft get your doctor's advice as to a reducing dose schedule or you could experience discontinuation syndrome and it's effects.
Personally, I'd advise being patient and letting your metabolism adjust as the benefits far outweigh this temporary inconvenience.

I totally empathize with you on this. I also wont tolerate side effects lasting this long. I'm semi retired as I work 5 months a year during the winter season in our park in South Texas plus I'm still active during the off season.
Luckily I have an understanding dr that knows I wont stay on a drug long with horrible side effects. I've had more than my fair share of stress recently . Bad Vertigo issues off an on. Finally calming down some. I take strictly generic ativan now plus sn occasional dramamine. Best of luck
