The time to an improvement of anxiety symptoms will vary from patient to patient when treating with Zoloft (sertraline). Generally, speaking the time to improvement of symptoms may take up to 2- 4 weeks. During the start of treatment and when adjusting doses patients may experience some side-effects such as restlessness, jitteriness, anxiety, insomnia, or headache and these symptoms may occur in the first days or weeks after dosage change or when newly starting the medication. If your symptoms do not improve after 4- 6 weeks it is typically recommended that you discuss with your doctor changing medications, or consider a referral to a psychiatrist.
