Any experience when taking Zoloft and adding Ambien CR to the mix for sleep? Can't sleep w/ Zoloft. Starting dose is 25 mg/d for 5 d (where I am now), then 50 mg for 5d, then 75 mg for 5 d, then 100 mg/d. Given Zoloft for "racing, obtrusive" thoughts.

I've taken Zoloft and Ambien CR in the past. The Zoloft just made my depression worse (but that could just be me, everyone is different). The titration you describe sounds like it's VERY FAST. Perhaps you should try to take 25mg for 7 days, 50mg for 7 days, then 100mg. That will give your body time to adjust to any initial side-effects.
If insomnia persists even with Ambien, I'd ask to switch to a different antidepressant.
