Zoloft Side Effects
Rare Zoloft Side Effects
Rare Zoloft side effects occur in less than 1 percent of people taking the drug. Because these side effects are so uncommon, it is often difficult to tell whether they are a result of the medication or something else.
Some of these rare side effects include but are not limited to:
- Impotence (erectile dysfunction, or ED)
- Cold, clammy skin
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- Hair loss (see Zoloft and Hair Loss)
- Increased appetite
- Weight gain (see Zoloft and Weight Gain)
- Muscle pain
- Menstrual problems
- Seizures (see Zoloft and Seizures)
- Irritation or inflammation of the nasal passages (rhinitis)
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus).
You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects during treatment. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While the issue may not be due to a side effect, your healthcare provider should be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
