  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • Bonnie on Dec, 19, 2014:

    I am a female, 53 years old started on Zoloft around August 15, 2014. On September the 28th I began to experience loose stools that over the next week turn into uncontrollable diarrhea. Over the next 2 months I went through a series of test; X-rays, CAT Scan, Upper GI, colonoscopy, and finally MRI which has determined that I have Inflammatory bowel disease-Chronic Colitis. I feel that Zoloft has caused this disease. Has anyone experience, or know anyone that has experienced this type or reaction when on Zoloft?
