How many people are taking Zoloft at night or the morning?


Catholicmom 28 Jan 2022

I started taking it at night but I was struggling with insomnia, waking around 2 each morning. I swapped to taking it just after my lunch. Now I’m tired in the afternoon but sleeping better at night!

Thank you for your feedback! It is greatly appreciated. I am having the same issue with it every night up between 3 and 4 and struggling to go back to sleep. I have started in the morning and hoping for some relief. How long before you started to get better sleep? I am on day 2

Pretty much straight away after changing to swapping till taking my medication after lunch. I still have the odd night where I wake up too early but on the whole my sleep has improved.

Thank you! Zoloft has been a real struggle for me. The side affects have been terrible but I am trying to tough it out.

Zoloft has been easier for me than lexapro was but I’ve still had side effects.
My daughter had no side effects whatsoever when she started Zoloft…. Some people are lucky!

I took Zoloft at night because it made me drowsy... but it can also cause insomnia. These side effects generally subside over a week or two for many people but If they persist longer than that your doctor should be told.
Everyone responds differently so you'll need to see how it affects you.

"Very common (10% or more of users): Insomnia (up to 21%)"
"Very common (10% or more of users): Somnolence (up to 13%)"

Best regards,

Thank you for your feedback. I was taking at night but was finding that I could not sleep through the night. So I just recently switched to mornings and wondering the consensus among other users. free discount card
