Zoloft and TD???

Posted by lolama on July 3, 2008, at 17:39:42

I have been off and on SSRIs for nearly 20 years. I recently (9 days ago) started 50mg Zoloft for postpartum depression. It seems to be helping already, especially with anxiety, but I think I may be getting a dyskinesia symptom. I find myself licking my lips or kind of rolling them in and biting down on them. I can stop it with concentration -- it's not exactly involuntary -- more like a strong urge. Been doing this for a couple of days. I have always had severe teeth-grinding at night, and I realize now that it is probably from all the SSRIs over the years. It continues regardless of whether or not I'm on them. I sometimes suspect my memory may also have been impaired by the years of meds. Who really knows? So what do I do now? Swear off all meds forever to avoid risk of TD? Switch to Lexapro? My options are limited in terms of meds because I am breastfeeding. I've been researching all afternoon, and now I wonder if my prolactin levels have something to do with this problem. I have been on zoloft before with no problems of this sort. The most exotic med I've ever been on is Neurontin. Other than that it's the standard stuff -- prozac, zoloft, luvox, serzone, and mostly Paxil, until it started messing with me as if withdrawing even when I wasn't.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Got the prescription from my OB, so I guess I need to go find a real psych doc now. Not much hope of that around here.
