    Default Medication side effects ?

    I was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder as well as anxiety and ptsd. One of my medications is supposed to be zoloft but I am TERRIFIED to take it due to the possible side effect of feeling sick and some people actually v*ing.
    Does anyone havw experience with this particular medication or any advice in general? Anything would be helpful, I want to feel better and I feel so frustrated and upset that this phobia is stopping me.

    Zoloft is well tolerated. Many on this board take it. I think you will be fine.

    Doug’s right. I’ve been here since 2001 and have never heard of an emetophobic vomiting after taking ANY drug that was prescribed. It may make you feel a bit “funny” or “weird” but after a while that will also go away. And you’ll feel waaaaay better.
