Good Morning....
 
Ive been taking Zoloft for almost 2 weeks. I was wondering if people take this med at night? I take it in the morning but do get some side effects. If I take it at night, it may relieve the side effects i feel during the day.
 
Thank you for any responses!

Good Morning Sunshine,

If Zoloft makes you feel drowsy, then it's best taken at bedtime. If it makes you feel energetic, then it's best taken first thing in the morning.

Just my 2 cents worth.  It seems to be dependent on each individual.

Good Luck,

Kitt

Sunshine,

I know that feeling well of having 3 weeks to go and you need to feel better, then the side effects are there to deal with.  I just started back on an AD, Wellbutrin and I am on Day 3.............I feel a bit dizzy at times and jittery.

I am like you, I work for the school system and I am worried about my body getting used to the new med before I have to work.  I am a subsititute school nurse so I never know when I will be scheduled so it is like the fear of the unknown.  But we will both make it through so use your Xanax to get your rest as tossing and turning all night really add to the anxiety.

Take care and keep on talking with us.

Kitt

Kitt,
Have u had any luck with AD's in the past? This is my first experience. I just want the fears to go away and start to feel like myself again. So far, today has been a good day :)
