03 Nov 2014 Zoloft is amazing for panic disorder and anxiety! Although it will take 2 to 4 weeks to work, but it is worth it. Might feel worse the first two weeks. It even keeps my heart rate at a normal pace, without it I have severe tachycardia. Only complaint is daytime fatigue, but that is better than daily panic attacks. Best dosage I've found that works is 100mg daily.

06 May 2013 Terrible side effects! Can ruin you forever! Try something else like prosac. I have a close friend taking prosac and it seems to be working for her!

10 Oct 2012 I have just started Zoloft and am having cramps in my groin. I wonder if this could be a side effect of Zoloft. I really don't like to take drugs unless I have to, but I have been mildly depressed.
