Hello and welcome to the forum,
Did the Zoloft come first, then the effexor, back to the Zoloft. I am having a hard time understanding what is going on. When did you stop the effexor, when did you start the Zoloft back and how long did you take it before feeling the side effects you described.
Off effexor in October, zoloft since then. Everything seems to make me this way now unless I am on very low doses!! I think I just need to stay put at 25 again for awhile and hope this passes
Pdoc says my metabolism could be changing.
I have a little bit of a different experience with Zoloft. I am bipolar and Zoloft sends me into Mania if I take it for too long. I find it hard to make the connection but I experience all of those symptoms while I am on Zoloft. How old are you? What have you been diagnosed with? How long ago did you start taking AD?
Saw the pdoc, it is Serotonin Syndrome due to reaction with Tramadol. Been on these meds 15years and WHAM!!! Pharmacist figured it out before the pdoc.. Have lost faith in doctors PERIOD!
Oh you didn't tell me about the tramadol. I am glad that they figured that out. Not all drs are really great. I hate to hear when they make mistakes like this. I mean is it that hard to do your research and find out what could be wrong. That is why I would never go to a medical dr for my medicines. A good psychiatrist would have figured this out earlier.
Are they going to stop the Tramadol or the Zoloft? Are they putting you back on the effexor. I tell everybody that you have to advocate for yourself. You have to stand up and say, hey, there is something wrong with me. These are my symptoms and I have researched it to find out that this could be the problem. I check every med they put me on and the side effects they could have when combined with this or that. I am not blaming you but you have to assist them. You may not be a doctor, I am not either but I am the one going through what I am going through and I challenge any dr that wants to do a med change. Never again.
