I don't know about zoloft, specifically, but I know most antidepressants decrease sexdrive fairly significantly. Paxil certainly does.

Yeah, one of the main side effects of Zoloft is reduced sex drive. Like the others said, most SSRI's can be that way. I'm on Zoloft though and while I do notice a difference in my sex drive, it's not affecting my life so much that I feel like I need to switch meds. Mostly because this one is finally working for my depression. Anyway, if you were to start taking Zoloft and notice a change in sex drive that you really didn't want to experience, you could always discuss changing meds with your doctor. Sorry for rambling..hope I helped.

I agree with Asho. I took zoloft and prozac years ago. Either one or both significantly decreased mine, although I can't remember which. I think most SSRI's can have that effect though.
