Side effects can include decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction, sedation (which is usually minimal), activation (experienced as a “jittery” feeling), headache, and upset stomach. Upset stomach does not last for more than a week usually.
The vast majority of patients do not have weight changes that are attributable to sertraline, but a small minority gain weight. While you should bring any bothersome side effects to your healthcare provider, do not stop sertraline without first talking to your healthcare provider.
