Zoloft is notorious for this s/e, more so than other SSRIs. Sometimes these meds can block the re-uptake of zinc, and this usually causes the body to shed hair prematurely.
You might continue to experience hair loss even though you are no longer on Zoloft, b/c other meds also have this potential. I managed to slow the shedding with 50mgs of zinc a day; others have found success with selenium, not sure what dose.
