I have been on zoloft for about 5 years...I was originally told I had OCD, but I am now being told I have dysthymia and adjustment disorder.
I don't really remember how long it took for me to begin to feel anything from the zoloft (especially because, at that time, I was 14 and I didn't really think there was anything wrong with me), but I know it will probably take a few weeks for you to start to feel better, and then a few more weeks before to feel the full benefit.
I don't remember having the side-effects you described, but I do remember I would get headaches in the beginning, and then each time the dose was raised.
