Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • I'm currently 19 years old, and I've been on generic Zoloft 50 mg (AKA sertraline) since I was 13 due to anxiety attacks after the death of my sister. At first it didn't help much, but I kept with it to see if it would eventually help me. I started having bad anxiety again at 15 and was bumped up to 150 mg. After about a month the raised amount I was prescribed made me feel like I was going crazy. I couldn't think straight, sleep right, I was having problems with school work, and I was constantly fighting with my family, so I tapered myself back down to 100, and then back down to 50. In the last year I've had no panic attacks, but recently my anxiety has returned and I feel like it's worsening again. I can't even drink coffee without my heart pounding, causing me to feel anxious. Even getting too little sleep makes me feel anxious. I can be at work and feel anxious for no reason. I can be at work and blink and feel like I'm dreaming, and I'll get anxious for no reason at all. I grind my teeth in my sleep now, I have trouble falling asleep, trouble waking up. I just wanted to get off Zoloft, so now I'm down to a fourth of a pill every two days, but I want to be off of it for good and I honestly can't get past not taking it for a third day because my withdrawals are so severe. The electro jolt feeling makes it literally impossible to focus on anything or stand for a long period of time. Two days ago I had hives from what I thought was an allergic reaction, but the next day I went to the doctor because the itching was so severe and still there, and the urgent care facility diagnosed me with erythema multiforme minor, gave no tests, and prescribed me prednisone and a corticosteroid ointment to use and told me to have a nice day. I'm just wondering if the sertraline is causing it or if I'm actually sick with something else.


  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Attempting to find out what is causing my rash. Was off all supplements for a week with no change. Off of Tamoxifen for one week no change. Where had radiation 1 1/2 year ago area was red. & hot this morning. Calmed down later in day. Rash from neck to knees including arms.


  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Nuvigil use followed by rash followed by massive sore. Have seen that penicillin allergy should not be treated with Nuvigil. Nuvigil works for intended use but fear SJS interacion. Please advise.
