Dear Nitin,as your doctor has thought you might be having anxiety related symptoms so your doctor has prescribed this tablet.Anxiety leads to releases of hormones in body which can lead to palpitation and other things.This drugs work on that and lead to relief of problem.Please take the drug regularly and do not discontinue on your own.please also try yoga and meditation which will also help.

I am also on the birth control pill and embien for sleep. Could all the medicines I m on be causing all these problems I am having or is it just due to Zoloft?

My heartbeat wakes me up in the mornings starting around 2am. The rate is at least 90 as it is most hours of the day. On occasion my heart rate is 70 and normal. My heart rate increases and pounds when I move in the bed or get up and walk. Happens several nights a week. Doctor put me on Zoloft because he said this was being caused by anxiety. The zoloft works fine for about 2 weeks @ 25mg but just becomes ineffective. I wore a holter monitor and took a stress test. Cardiologist says my heart rate is a little high but otherwise everything else is fine. Put me on metoprolol. Seems to work but makes me short of breath. Had to quit. Blood pressure fluctuates. Sometimes 120/70 sometime 150/90. This is very confusing. Anxiety or something else?
