About Zoloft

Composition

1 tablet Zoloft 50 mg (100 mg) contains sertraline hydrochloride 0.05 g (0.1 g). Auxiliary components: calcium dihydrogen phosphate, MCC, hydroxypropylcellulose, sodium carboxymethyl-starch, magnesium stearate, HPMC, macrogol, polysorbates, titanium dioxide.

Pharmachological effect

Sertraline is the active ingredient in Zoloft. He stops the reagent (reverse capture) of serotonin, which is performed by the neurons that have isolated it. As a result, the concentration of the neurotransmitter increases in the synaptic gap and the main cause of depressive states, the serotonin deficiency, is eliminated.

The effect on serotonin receptors causes a significant correction of the mental state of patients with depression. It manifests itself in heightening the mood, eliminating phobias, anxious states, reducing feelings of melancholy, and reducing appetite. The drug acts on 5-HT receptors. On the reagent of norepinephrine, dopamine is weakly affected. There was no sedative, cardiotoxic effect, anticholinergic effect and stimulation effect. Zoloft does not provoke the formation of dependence. Long-term therapy can lead to a decrease in the activity of adrenaline receptors in the brain.

Indications for use

    After the 2 tablet had a feeling as a rocket shoots from my body. Then I had 200 pulse and my blood pressure 130/210 and that for several days. I was only 3 days shivering and wobbling in bed. Since this horror trip am I never got well again. Got a drug phobia and was several times in psychosomatic clinic and today still tend to panic attacks for every drug. Had no problems with drugs before taking Zoloft. It is sad that these drugs continue to be sold and supported by the doctors because their side effects can destroy so much. I think this is all about money!! Otherwise these drugs would never have been approved with such side effects see also Avalox

    Zoloft for Depression

    The drug showed first effects after about 2-3 weeks. I was able to sleep better again and had less anxiety and sadness during the day and night; no more sudden negative holes. The blush on the face also dropped significantly. At the beginning (2-3 days) I had to fight a little bit with fatigue and abdominal pain, later an increased sweating occurred, which, however, became less again. But on the whole it is quite, contrary to all the often different voices, recommended for people who are stuck in seemingly hopeless situations.

    Side effects: Stomach pain; Fatigue; Sweat

    all medis make unrealistic thoughts on me side effects. react very strongly to all medis. Truxal blew me the lowest dose and I had a circulatory colapse. when deroxat I always had abdominal pain but otherwise ok felt but no effect. and the discontinued was the horrer mega withdrawal. Since I actually want to lead a normal life I want a medi where I can get pregnant so I switched to zoloft at the beginning was mr kotz could eat bad and a quarter of an hour came down everything again out. Since I zoloft take again more Attaken would like to get away from it unfortunately I have no real doctor at the time since I am out of the clinic I’m looking for a take in the ta 100 mg I think the mega much. and I have since zoloft also very stupid thoughts that make me afraid the feeling of being crazy. fucking medis real.

    Zoloft for Depression

    After taking Zolof (how long, how much I do not know), my sister took her life on July 20, 2008. Psychiatry, in which she was after her first suicide attempt (also after taking Zolof), denied any guilt and connections. I can only say, take your fingers away from this stuff – very fast. The initial deceptive successes, after ingestion can quickly, very quickly turn into the opposite. My sister was a very cheerful woman. She had two very dear children whom she loved very much – for whom she always lived. I can not imagine that she wanted to leave her children.

    Side effects: Suicidal ideation

    I can only report a positive overall experience. Initially (about 2 weeks) latent nausea, inner restlessness and sleep disorders, but the side effects diminished over time. The only noticeable side effect that I still feel today is Restless Legg Syndrome. However, the effects against the anxiety disorders are to be evaluated much more positively than the severity of the side effects. Overall, I can only recommend the drug.

    Zoloft for Depression

    I used the medicine in 2001 and had many terrible side effects. Some of them hold until today !!! (2008). To name just a few side effects: a) have gone over: irritability, tachycardia; Feeling energized, gaining weight, feeling as if nerves are tearing and feeling signals are no longer being absorbed by synapses b) Longer remained: tachycardia, heart problems in general c) LIVED 7 YEARS AFTER: – General emotional and emotional decline. including: weaker body perception, e.g. reduced sensitivity to temperature and pain, reduced sexual experience, reduced emotional experience (eg pleasure or anger no longer feels in the body, only in the face) – Rest-Less-Legs-Syndrom (a friend of mine has the same lasting side effect years later! ) – Muscle tremors Having overcome depression on my own and with the help of good therapists, today leads a good-middle-class life, but I will have to carry the side effects of this drug all my life. What has not disappeared after 7 years will stay forever. I have to live with that now. And before that I would like to warn you. Already on the first day of taking Zoloft I felt that something was wrong and unfortunately did not trust my inner voice …

    Zoloft for Depression

    Use in case of reactive depression after death Zoloft had to stop after one year, as there was an in-blood thyroid under-function that was not there before taking the medication. Subsequently, the values improved again. I was aggressive and over-excited during Zoloft taking. After about half a year without Zoloft, I have again had depression with strong anxiety symptoms, which I had not before. Never again psychotropic drugs, makes everything much worse !!!

    Side effects: Aggressiveness
