I've started taking zoloft for a treatment (panic disorder) and fortunately I survived the first weeks. I know a lot of people who had to change their medication because of the side effects.
Right from the 1st day, with only 25mg I started feeling sick and had no appetite. Insomnia also strikes, and I got dizzy a lot, sometimes for the whole day. Moving to 50mg the insomnia gets even worse, and I got weird feelings, like trembling at night. I started feeling hopeless and very anxious (which is weird since it's used against anxiety...), desperate to cry and the feeling is that that altered state will never end.
I do not recomend anyone to take this drug for recreation. It has no good efects AT ALL, specially on the first month. Choose something else.
