Welcome to Healthcare Magic
The drug is known to cause stomach trouble, headache, increased sleep as side effects. But I need to warn you to kindly not take any other tablet while you are on Zoloft unless you get permission from your Doctor to take it. There is increased risk of problems if you suddenly discontinue the drug as well like headache, dizziness, restlessness, nausea, vomiting etc. so kindly be aware of this and do not attempt to do so without advice from your Doctor. You need to eat healthy. Avoid junk food. Drink plenty of water. Try to remain stress free. Discuss with your Doctor about the side effects and the problems you are having and probably dose adjustment or new drug may be started.

Hello, welcome to Healthcaremagic. I feel you are having overdosage of zoloft. It is known to cause lethargy, ataxia, tachycardia and seizures in over dose. As the other cause could have been a cardiac disorder but the hospital investigation ruled that out, you are definitely on higher than required doses. You must visit your doctor for further adjustment of zoloft dose. Wish you good health.

you need to go see a doctor as soon as possible. it is quite normally to feel "not-so-hot" after being placed on zoloft...but the longest it should last is a week. i was put on zoloft and i reacted very badly to in also. the first week was terrible, the second fine and the third was very bad again. he took me off immediatly. now i am on something different, and it helping me :) good luck.
