Hi, I am new here. I have been taking Zoloft since I was 19, I am now 26. It has been going fine, but the past week, around the times I have listed I get depressed. For some reason near nightime I feel like myself but obviously sleepy from the late night, and in the morning I feel great until 3:00 p.m. I don't understand why this has happened over the past week, I mean before that each day seemed normal. Now I do take synthroid and have missed about 2 pills over the course of the week, but I have been taking synthroid for four years now, could that be the reason?

I take .175 mg. of Synthroid and if I miss one day, I feel sluggish by the end of the day.  I don't know if that helps you or not.
 
Take care!

Welcome to the forum!
What time do you take your meds? I would contact your doctor first about this,but what if you changed the time you take the meds to later in the morning? I am wondering if it just might be the time frame of the release of the actual medication in your system?
It sounds funny and way to easy I know..but, I found myself not feeling right later in the day,so I started taking my meds 2 hours later in the morning,and it really helped.

If it continues though,like I said you should contact your doctor.

Another day-

I take about 75 micrograms, and yeah I do feel sluggish around the times I posted

When I first started on the synthroid it was first called unithroid i think, and I always took it at 6:00 a.m. and either slept or waited an hour before to eat breakfast, but over the years I guess I took synthroid for granted I have been taking it like at 11:00 a.m. or I don't wait 1 hour after taking it and eat something. The last 2 years I started to take a nap at around 2 or 3 p.m. and woke up at 5pm or 6pm and I have been sleepy around these times ever since, I don't know if the reason for this was because of the wrong times and ways I was taking my synthroid. So with all this plus me missing a couple of days I have made a theory that this was caused my depressed time during the 3-10 pm time interval. Well just yesterday I set the alarm at 6 a.m. and today I woke up at that time and took my meds and ate breakfast 4 hrs after. I noticed that the good feelings I had before that 3 pm time frame sort of extended to around 5 pm and I felt a little more energetic, so I am thinking if I get back to my usual 6 a.m. time I might get back to where I was.

Any thought?

Thanks for your replies

That sounds right Ramza.
The time release of the meds just might be what is going on.
I would continue with that schedule and see what happens.


Keep us posted and good luck
