Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum - I've been on Zoloft for 5 weeks, slowly increased my dosage to 100mg, been on 100mg for 2 weeks and I've been experiencing the 'coffee jitters' for the past week. I know as soon as the jitters and shake go away I'll be cured from this terrible anxiety! My question is: did anyone else have the jitters and shakes, if so, when will it go away? Thanks for responding :) What mg were on previously with Zoloft and what were you on during the 4 weeks? I too experienced that when I restarted Zoloft in November. I was fine at 75mg, the shakes and jitters are slowly going away, if it doesn't improve in another week, I'll try and reduce the dosage to 75mg. I started out at a low dose (25mg) then tapered up by 25 mg every week (with the exception of going from 75mg to 100mg, I waited two weeks to go up to 100), and EVERY time I bumped up my dose, the coffee jitters returned for a few days. I WILL say that they got less severe and lasted for a much shorter time the longer I was on the Zoloft. best of luck c: Thank you all for your support and encouragement. The bad news is, it's uncomfortable and not fun, the good news is they will resolve with time, you just have to be patient. I've been forced to go out in public for the past week and I've been taking 10mg of valium and a glass or two of wine in the evening. I know benzo's are addictive so I'm planning to stop them in 2 days, I'm praying to God that my jitters and shakes will have vanished by then :) I don't mind my hands shaking, but it's the facial tremors that bother me the most. I just checked my calendar and I've been on Zoloft for 82 days, that's almost 3 months : O and only now am I feeling the real benefits from Zoloft.
You are not alone. We studied 104,269 people who take Zoloft and have side effects from FDA. Jitters was reported. See who they are, when they have it. I started Zoloft years ago and loved it, went off it 8 months ago and started back up last month, only lasted 4 weeks as it gave me the jitters, maybe you.
