Hi
I've just started on 50mg Zoloft and am experiencing an increase in anxiety and nervousness (as well as teeth clenching). Is this increase in restlessness something that others have also experienced - and how long do these side effects last? Is there anything I can do to help reduce the side effects?

Thanks a lot

You might have to go to another drug, that is a low dose, if that side effect does not plain out in 3-4 weeks. My son was put on it and it caused high anxiety and he went off it before we could see if it would plain out. Prozac has a similiar chemical componint and might work better for u. on a low dose intially. good luck
