I been on Zoloft for 3 and a half weeks and the only side effect was insomia. Yesterday morning I upped my dose to 75mg and today I woke up dizzy and with lower back pain. Is this normal?

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i believe Insomnia is the side effects of zoloft. Increasing the dose may have caused this Side Effects. Give it some time and get back to the dose you are prescribed by your doctor. If the issue persists consult your psychiatrist and let them help in this regard further.

Take care.
