Anyone on Zoloft.. I have the 25mg at home rn. sitting untouched since July. I’m scared to start taking it cause i used to have seizures. but all my doctors said it’s ok to take, including the neurologist. what should i expect with this? good and bad. i’m still skeptical about it and scared out of my mind to take it

      I started it in 2009 at 50 mg after my mother passed from Alzheimer's and now take 100 since my husband passed in 2015. Never have had an issue with it.

      I have epilepsy and take Zoloft and have not had any increase in seizures,but not on any anti seizure meds currently. My cycle still seems to be the same I just recently went up to 50 mg from 25 mg

      I took zoloft for about 2 yrs. I was fine and it helped me for 2 years . I had epilepsy also. Remember it takes some time to help you.

      If your neurologists say it is OK then it should be OK. Sounds a bit like anxiety my friend! ❤

      Never had any really bad side effects from this personally. The most I had was maybe a dry mouth. Even so, it has helped me so much

      I have had seizures so I understand where you're coming from. Zoloft did fine for me and I didn't have one seizure.

      And it actually helps me so much too

      I’m on it for one reason is because it’s the only safe psych med that u can take if u are pregnant. And I’m trying to get pregnant

      It’s pretty safe from what I know.. but we’re you offered anything else? Maybe if you’re scared it isn’t worth it

      I never had any negative side effects. I was just able to get out of bed and do the things that needed done.

      I've taken Zoloft since 2005 and like Susanne said it's been a lifesaver for me.

      I’ve been on it for four years. It was a life saver for me.
