Yes I’ve taken it. You can decide to keep taking it or not but you should be properly informed. Effects of SSRI’s such as Zoloft include obesity, diebetes, heart disease, mania, agitation and it even has a black box warning that it can increase suicides. These drugs are addicting and will cause an addiction. Corporate clinical trials which have been cherry picked, and have a lot of problems give needed to treat numbers around 8. This means for every 8 people taking these drugs 1 will get a benefit from them. The rest are harmed with no benefits. Studies that correct for some of the flaws in corporate clinical trials find SSRI’s do not improve outcomes. Studies done independent find in the long term SSRI’s significantly worsen your outcome. One outcome measure found taking an SSRI increased your chance of becoming disabled by 50%.

I am on Sertraline (Zoloft) and it has been successful for me. Don't draw any conclusions about it until your body can adjust to it.
Give it a few months to build up in the system, unless you notice any severe or harmful side-effects. Not everyone will experience the listed common side-effects. Everyone is different.
I recently went from 75mg to 100mg. I have been complimented on my behavior. People note that I seem more relaxed and social. My racing thoughts and the music in my head have subsided for the most part. Sleep has improved and I can concentrate better.
Best of luck to you. :D
