Hi Meme,

 

Here is a link that discusses the side effects of zoloft.

 

Zoloft side effects

 

While the side effects of zoloft do not include a loud heart beat, there are heart issues that can cause this symptom or the symptom of feeling your heart beat.  I suggest you see your primary care physician as soon as you can about this to see if there is an underlying medical issue that should be addressed.

 

Best of luck,

Hi Meme,

 

High cholesterol alone is generally not assiciated with a loud heart beat.  I still recommend you make an appointment with your physician to see if there is another cause for the loud heart beat. 

 

Best of luck,
