  • Zoloft????

    Hi everyone, i was on zoloft a year ago for five years, then i discontinued it which was when my IC kicked in. i am back on it now, per my pcp, and am on 50 mg right now, i have noticed that my feelings of "arousal" down there have increased. i know that this happened with the elavil i used to be on, and it went away in a few weeks. is this the same thing, and will it go away? i s it just my body getting used to it???I have a call into my pcp to ask him what he wants me to do.

    thanks!

    I was having that same issue, but as soon as I got back on Elavil the feeling has not been as bad. I dont know anything about Zoloft, but like I said Elavil has helped me...

      i cant take elavil.... it makes me angry and destructive and moody, plus i have depression/anxiety/ocd so zoloft coversa ll those areas

      im hoping that once i get used to it, the feeling will subside.
