zoloft and coffee
« on: July 05, 2014, 04:56:35 PM »
Since I have started zoloft (end of 2nd week) I have stopped drinking coffee.  I had a cup the first time I took zoloft and had huge anxiety.  Just wondering if anyone has had similar experience in the beginning of Sertraline treatment?
Thanks
Joe
PS - Not to mention the cafine isn't much good for the insomnia.

It's not good for anxiety disorders either.  :(

You're still really early on into your treatment, so setbacks are normal. It is also normal to have heightened anxiety after having caffeine. I'd lay off the coffee for now if I were you. I've been on sertraline for many months and I still only drink tea in the morning instead of coffee because I know what coffee does to my anxiety. :(

Good advice, thanks. Let me ask, how many months into your Sertraline treatment did you notice that you felt significantly better?
Thanks again.

About 2.5 - 3 months into treatment I noticed a substantial difference. Then it got even better from then on!  :yes:
