My dad passed away very unexpectedly on the 5th of July 09. I was needless to say having a hard time, so the doc put me on Zoloft. I felt much better. Even as an added bonus my PMS symptoms got better. Then I kind of leveled off, so he doubled my dose about a week ago. I am still doing ok but I have noticed I get head aches more often and I am not falling asleep as soon as I should be. Do you have experience on this drug, have you noticed side effects?

  • Headaches and insomnia are one of the common common side effects of Zoloft.There are also some concerns regarding  Zoloft birth defects. Most women are afraid that they are putting their baby at risk because they are taking the drug.
