I was prescribed Zoloft for depression symptoms associated with menopause. The side effects I experienced while taking this included increased hot flashes, sweating, acne, rash on back, forearms, neck and muscle tightness and tingling in hands.
I started on 50 mg and increased to 100mg after 1 week. The symptoms got worse when the dosage was increased so I went back to 50mg.
I discontinued the Zoloft about a week ago and I have had horrible muscle pain and stiffness including neck stiffness, numbness and tingling in hands and pelvic/hip pain. Has anyone else experienced this? Is this just symptoms of Zoloft withdrawal? If so, how long will it last? Will it ever go away?
