Question: Zoloft

 Hegenbart5 - Mon Mar 26, 2007 3:23 am

I am a 24/f. I was taking Zoloft 50mg for the past 2 years. I went off of them a few months back and ever since than, I have had abnormal periods and a hormonal imbalance. Was wondering if the 2 could be connected? Can stopping Zoloft do this?

Zoloft is not known to cause these kinds of problems either while taking it or after discontinuation.

If you haven't seen your doctor already, I think this would be a good time to do so.

Good luck.
