Zoloft And Stuttering?

5 posts in this topic

Posted

Since my dr. raised my dosage to 100 mg of zoloft, I've started tripping over words sometimes. At first it was once in a while and now it's daily - at least once a day. I'll be talking to someone and suddenly a garbled mess comes out of my mouth and I try to act normal and keep talking. I know it's noticable. It's not exactly stuttering, but sorta like it. Like I can't get the words out and sounds that aren't words come out - just a second or two and then it stops. I've been on 100 mg for about 3 weeks.

Other than this, no side effects left to speak of. Except a lot of flatulence, LOL.

Has anyone heard of this or had this happen? I'd like to know if it stops eventually or if it gets worse. Thanks.

Now that you say something, I do that also. i have been on Zoloft for almost 4 years. We will have to see what answers we get from this post.

I don't think I've been having the speech thing for 3 weeks, but I've been on 100 mg for about 3 weeks. It didn't start immediately, but a little later. To see if it would affect it at all, I went down to 50 mg. for a couple of days and the stuttering thing has almost stopped. So, apparently when you stop taking zoloft, it will go away - or when you take a lower dose. I'll go back to 100 mg tomorrow and see if it happens again.

Interesting! I had some stuttering problems early on with Z. (Started at 50mg). Came about suddenly, then was gone a few days later. I did have a slight stutter when I was very young. I wonder if the drug triggered a relapse.

Glad it didn't last. That was just one more thing that made my co-workers ask each other (yes, I overhead them on a few occasions) "What the heck is wrong with her?" I prefered another comment I heard later on: "She's not a Biotch today. Must have had some really good sex!" I laughed at that one. First time I had laughed in a long time!
