I started taking Zoloft two nights ago. My doctor prescribed it for me for general anxiety and started me out at a 25 mg dose at bedtime. The reason I sought out my doctor about this is because my anxiety was getting in the way of my work and my ability to learn a new position at my work.

Later that night after taking it, I started to notice effects immediately and I already feel less anxious than before. I also feel more rested in the morning surprisingly... but that might be because I have been going to bed slightly earlier. I can't tell how long I actually sleep though because I have been getting vivid dreams.

I am wondering if this is normal, or if I am just experiencing the placebo effect.
