First of all, do you take any other depression drugs, or mood disorder drugs such as
SNRIs and SSRI ?
If mixed with these, Zoloft can cause serotonin syndrome. This includes fever, sweating, muscle stiffness, trouble thinking clearly, a change in mental functioning, sleepiness, or change in your breathing, heartbeat and blood pressure disorder.
If this is the case, you should stop taking Zoloft and speak to your Doctor.

I can never emphasise enough, always insist medication comes with a leaflet which
states possible side effects.

Thanks for answering my questio aboutzoloft and heart palpatations. I do not take any SNRI or SSRI,only zoloft. Take klonopin occaissonally.  So I do not think I am overloaded on these. In that case are these side effects rare?  Thanks, lucylou4

very rare, they are only known to occur when this drug is mixed with others.

I had exactly those side effects happening the first day I took it. I was not sure if it was the zoloft so I took 1more pill  the next day again...Not even it got worse, I was hallucinating and had panic attack after another all night. I also felt a sharp pain inside the vains of my arms. I thought it was my last day on earth. I had irregular heartbeat which never happened before. Now 2 months after I have irregular heartbeat basically when I sleep on one side....
