      I started Zoloft and my doctor never said I couldn’t have anything with it. I think you should be fine

      I love chocolate and eat it almost everyday and have never had any negative experiences with it and Zoloft together. Hope this helps! 😊

      Alright guys! I actually asked my doctor about this because I saw the same thing. She said that it's not extremely likely unless you are taking high amounts of chocolate at the same time. I know I'm not on Zoloft anymore, but since I happened to have an appointment today, I thought I would ask for you. Just take it in moderation, and if you feel weird, say something. Hope this helps!

          @maya64 lol you're right, but she meant excessive, to the point of eating pounds of it

      I would keep an eye out for symptoms of serotonin syndrome, but otherwise, don't worry about it. Especially if you're not on a particularly high dose or any other meds that interact with zoloft that way

      I'm on Zoloft and eat chocolate. I haven't noticed any negative effects. I also drink coffee and don't notice anything. It could be a "it's different for everyone" thing. It definitely won't kill you

      I just looked this up and apparently some foods like chocolate caffeinated drinks red wine combined with sertaline can cause serotonin syndrome which can lead to symptoms like rapid heart beat, trembling, sweating, nausea and vomiting. Anyone please correct me if I’m wrong. Source: https://www.medindia.net/amp/drugs/drug-food-interactions/sertraline.htm

      I just started Zoloft this year cause of my major depression disorder and I eat chocolate which I’m not supposed to eat cause I’m lactose intolerant

      Im on Zoloft but I’ve never heard im not supposed to have chocolate, personally. I’ve been eating chocolate while on it, and nothing noticeable has come from it. Maybe talk to your doctor and ask? Hope this helps!
