Hello everyone I have been on Zoloft for 4 months now and upon taking this medication the first week I noticed my fingers were sore in the joint area. I thought it was just a side effect of the medication and would go away within 2 weeks or so. Well it did so that's why I never reported the bee stinging pain in my hands and fingertips in the beginning. Everything was fine for about 2 months but just recently I have gotten the same joint pain in my fingers, wrists, elbows, both knees. Excruciating pain. I am only in my 40's so the thought of arthritis went out the door. Also I live in the Southeast US so warm climate. I have always been a very active person. Never had a desk job in my life. The only thing I can attribute this debilitating joint pain, swelling, and pain to is Setraline the generic for Zoloft. I stopped taking this medication a month ago and I am still experiencing these issues. I am on 2400mg of Ibuprofen a day plus 20mg of Valium and yet I wake up in pain every morning. Stiffness, limping to walk, brushing my teeth & hair as well as dressing myself has become a real task and takes me twice as long. I am sharing this with anyone who can provide me with answers or give me some information or recommendations. Has anyone else experienced this type of pain??? So tired of being in pain & taking pain medication which after a week should have made the swelling go down. I will stop now as my fingers are cramping again like an 87 year old woman??? So confused!!! Thank you for taking the time out to read this.
