Sertraline (Zoloft) and acne?

Recommended Posts


Recently my skin has been a mess, and I have no idea whats causing it. Ive always had good skin, with a few big pimples here and there, but who doesn't honestly. I have narrowed it down to 3 possible factors, which are stress (broke up with bf during finals season), which resulted in some closed comedones or bumpy texture. To combat this my doctor prescribed adepolene gel .1% (possible factor 2). I have also switched from prozac to zoloft (sertraline) and i have heard this drug can cause acne especially in young women (possible factor 3). Basically, I was wondering if anyone else has experienced acne from zoloft, because the closed comedones I thought were from stress happened about 2 or 3 weeks after I started taking it, and thats around the time side effects begin to show up. Thoughts?
