Currently on Xanax for anxiety and am decreasing dosage. My PDoc rx'ed me Zoloft as I was and always have had "racing thoughts". He felt that this might be a symptom of some form of OCD. Started 25 mg in AM per RX, but I really feel sleepy during the day. Is there any problem with takeing the Zoloft at bedtime?
You are ok to take the Zoloft either in the morning or the evening as long as you take at the same time each day. Do not take two doses in the same 24 hours if you are going to switch to eveing. I must warn you though once you are on the Zoloft for a little while it may start to cause the opposite problem, keeping you awake at night. Just going to have to wait and see.
Laurie is so right on. My husband was taking his 100mg of zoloft at bedtime, & I found out on this site about the not sleeping on zoloft so asked him to switch to AM. Now he hasn't had near as much of a time sleeping at night...
Just to add to Laurie and Marys thoughts. Yes indeed. Insomnia is the number one complaint when it comes to side-effects. And its a normal one. Not adverse. I was on zoloft for some years, and ended up stopping it just for that reason. Being an insomniac to begin with you might understand my reasoning. best to you.
