Serious Side Effects

  • Suicidal thoughts or behavior
      Higher risk if:
    • Age 24 years or younger

    Zoloft (sertraline) may raise the risk of suicidal thoughts or behavior. Watch out for worsening depression or any unusual changes in mood or behavior, especially during the first few months of treatment or when the dose changes. Tell your doctor right away if you experience any of these thoughts.

    This is a black box warning. The FDA requires this warning when there is a significant risk of serious or life-threatening effects that anyone taking the drug should consider.
  • Serotonin syndrome
      Higher risk if:
    • Taking other medicines that affect serotonin levels

    Serotonin is one of the chemicals in your brain responsbile for your mood, and serotonin syndrome is a rare, but potentially life-threatening condition where there's too much serotonin active in the brain. Symptoms include fast heart rate, sweating, muscle stiffness or spasms, fever, and confusion. Tell your doctor right away if you have symptoms while taking Zoloft (sertraline).

  • Mania
      Higher risk if:
    • Personal history of bipolar disorder
    • Family history for bipolar disorder

    Sometimes, depression is the first symptom of bipolar disorder. Treating someone with bipolar disorder with an antidepressant alone can cause a manic episode (great excitement, euphoria, delusions, and overactivity). This is more likely to happen if you or someone in your family has had bipolar disorder. Talk to your doctor right away if you notice unusual changes in behavior.

  • Withdrawal
      Higher risk if:
    • Stopping Zoloft (sertraline) suddenly

    Withdrawal symptoms may occur if you lower the dose or stop Zoloft (sertraline) suddenly. Symptoms include nausea, dizziness, muscle aches, fatigue, chills, anxiety, and irritability. Gradually lower your dose to avoid withdrawal.

  • Increased bleeding
      Higher risk if:
    • Taking blood thinners

    Zoloft (sertraline) can raise the risk of bleeding. Tell your doctor about black stools, pink or red urine, bruising that doesn't improve, or unusual bleeding like a nosebleed that doesn't stop.

  • Low sodium levels in the blood
      Higher risk if:
    • Older people
    • Taking diuretic medicines

    Zoloft (sertraline) can cause very low sodium levels in your blood. Report to the doctor right away if you experience weakness, confusion, difficulty concentrating, headache, or memory problems.
