Zoloft and facial tics

Jul 29, 2006

My 10 year old son is taking 50mg of zoloft daily for anxiety disorder. We notice he has a facial tic, he scrunches up the left side of his face kind of like when you try to push up glasses on your face without using your hands. Will this always be with him as long as he is taking the zoloft?

Response from Dr. Horwath

Facial tics such as this are a side effect of Zoloft. It might respond to a dose adjustment. Discuss it with the doctor
