    Side Effects from Zoloft
    misscb posted:
    Hi All, I am new at this community. I recently stopped taking Zoloft and then had some life changing experiences. I decided to go back o the Zoloft due to depression setting in again. I experienced certain side effects that started p again once i started taking the Zoloft again.

    Has anyone experienced back pain, shoulder and back pain, profuse sweating or other physical side effects from Zoloft?

    Thanks for any feed back or help on this.

    Im pretty depressed, so when I made the switch from Celexa to Zoloft, I didnt notice a definite change because I think it was like a tapering off that we did to ease me into it, BUT!
    I have been experiencing really bad back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and my feet stink worse then ever, and it seems like my extra strength Degree deoderant is failing me.

    I thought maybe Im just getting older. But im only 24.
    Your post intrigues me, I have an upcoming doctor appointment, I hope I remember to ask him about this.

    I know some folks would maybe suggest that the Zoloft just isnt working for you, because random pains are associated with depression, but where you discontinued the med and felt better prior and in between, I think you could be onto something.
