    Zoloft has a lot of side effects. Diarrhea is one of them. It is supposed to go away as you adjust to the medication. If it is helping you I would try to wait out the side effects. Get some anti-diarrhea if it is very bad or go on a soft diet until the diarrhea stops. If the medication is not helping you, notify your doctor. Your pharmacist may be able to give you some ideas of what to do to help the diarrhea while taking the Zoloft. They are so helpful to me when I have problems with my meds and they will also contact your Dr. if they think your medication can be changed to something with less side effects. I don't know what I would do without my pharmacists.

    I would think it wouldn't be the zoloft. If your doing some out of the normal than that could be the problem. Specially if you have been taking the zoloft for a while.

    I was on Zoloft for three months in 2007. It never gave me diarrhea. It will cause insomnia. What is Triple c's?

    The most common Zoloft side effects are dry mouth, insomnia, sexual side effects, diarrhea, nausea, and sleepiness. If you are having an excessive amount of diarrhea then call your doctor. If it is just a little bit and only a couple times a day, your body will eventually adjust. Good luck and God Bless
