I am on Zoloft 50 mg since 6 months now, a month ago, I started to feel general fatigue and tiredness, now it is extreme, I feel tired after reading one page, and though, I keep laying down all day long, that affected my productivity and ability to study, totally.
What to do?

Hello Adonees. I suggest you tell/see your doctor. Your dose is low for Zoloft and you should not be feeling this tired. Extreme fatique is a adverse effect to taking the drug. Regards and be well, pledge

I would think that your dose could be increased, that's for sure. Depression causes decrease in energy and drive. If you can't see a dr readily you've got a real problem. How are you getting the zoloft? The dosing on zoloft is 50-200mg/day. If you try an increase I would just go up 50 mg at a time until you're used to the increased dose and see how that works. Before you moved, were you seen by a doctor to be sure you didn't have a physical problem causing the exhaustion?

Hello Adonees. I am answering your last question/statement here, I cannot add it to the one where I answered joey's question. There is a difference in between my answer to joey and yours. Simply you are having a physical reaction. That is why I suggested you seek a doctors opinion. (did not mention a therapist) The question asked by joey was not in the same theme as yours. Two complete different issues. Best of wishes and do have a great weekend, pledge

I have the same reaction to my Zoloft. But it is seemingly starting to work for me so I stay on it. I eat more nuts and fruit for energy, make sure to work out in the morning and do not lay down in the day or sleep in. When you sleep in here and there or nap often or after 3 you disturb your sleep cycle and end up much more tired yet and for me, depressed.
