How long were you off of the Zoloft? It could be your body's physiology adjusting to the dose of Zoloft again after being off of it for however long?

This website states that your side effects are common for Zoloft though. So, I really don't know.

Zoloft Antidepressant Side Effects: Risks From Sertraline Prescribed For OCD, Panic Disorder, Depression

Most of Zoloft’s common side effects are physical, including nausea, diarrhea, drowsiness, headache, excessive sweating, uncontrollable shaking of a part of your body, and constipation. However, some side effects can be rather serious. The U.S. National Library of Medicine says to call your doctor if you experience seizures, fever, abnormal bleeding or bruising, or hallucinating.

Another serious side effect of Zoloft is serotonin syndrome, caused by a high level of serotonin in your brain. Zoloft can cause this because the drug works by increasing the availability of serotonin in your brain. Similar to Zoloft, serotonin syndrome can cause diarrhea, excessive sweating, and headaches, but severe symptoms can include high fever, seizures, irregular heartbeat, and unconsciousness.
