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 a 57 year old female who has been experiencing extreme episodes of sweating lasting sometimes for a couple of hours. Hair dripping. Feel tired most of the time. Dr. just took me off Zoloft thinking that may be causing the extreme sweating. I had been on 100mg of Zoloft for about 13 years. I also take Wellbutrin XL 300. My A1C was 6.1. Doctor doesn't seemed concerned with A1C. I just don't know what can be causing such extreme sweating. Any ideas? Thanks, Marilyn

Dear sir or madam, I have had a flakey, soft, darkbrown stool for about two weeks now. It has a really strong smell and I have a lot of gas too. I tend to go to the toilet about 3 to 5 times a day, it is really getting too much! I am on 100 mg of sertraline since about 2 months now. Also, I have a strong smelling vaginal discharge and a strange itch with tiny little red spots on the top of my feet and my legs. Where does this all come from!? Thank you for your help
