Zoloft risks
Jun 1, 2007
Hi,

I have experienced high levels of anxiety recently and both the psychiatrist and GP are recommending I take Zoloft. I am concerned about possible effects while taking the drug, and also long term ones. I have no idea about what they do in the brain or the risks involved, neither of the medical people mentioned have explained them, indeed I'm not sure they fully know what the risks are. I'm wondering if it might be possible to suggest trying to deal with anxiety by other means at least initially, although I suspect it might be difficult to persuade them against drug treatment at this stage. If someone here could come up with or knows of some good evidence of the risks that would help my case in persuading my GP. I'm sure he'd be interested to know too. (In the interests of impartiality, if there are not any significant risks, then I'd be happy to take the drug according the GP's advice.)

Thanks

Josh
