I started on zoloft 25mg 7 days ago. I felt increased anxiety, dry mouth, insomnia, shakiness, headache and stiff/tense neck and sweaty palms and feet. I switched to taking it in the morning and that has helped with the insomnia. But the shakiness is still awful. I dont even feel like I can leave the house cause now I look like I am on something. Also, I still feel sort of surreal...like life is surreal. I am supposed to go back to work in 2 weeks and am FREAKED out about it. I have a very high stressful job taking care of people and feel like I can barely take care of myself. I contacted my MD who is prescribing the zoloft. I am supposed to increase my dose to 50mg tomorrow. She told me we may need to switch meds.
I also am breastfeeding. I go to counseling every week and support group every week.
Did anyone get these symptoms on zoloft? Should I switch meds or try another week to see if they improve(higher dose may help md said?)
I am so desperate to get better asap as I have to return to work.
