I began taking Zoloft 12.5mg roughly 4 weeks ago, although I feel as if it has helped my panic attacks, depression, and anxiety the insomnia is horrible. I barely sleep if any at all. I also take a .5mg Xanax in order to try and get some sleep and if I do, I'm lucky to get an hour. I have issues falling asleep and then staying asleep. I take my Zoloft at 5pm every day. Is there any hope of sleeping again? I have heart issues and if I don't rest good my heart acts up on me something awful... help please!!!
Hi, I started on 25mg Zoloft and the after a month I’m taking 37.5mg. I take it about noon after lunch. It makes me very sleepy & sometimes my sleep at night isn’t great. Maybe try taking in the morning? I’ve also taken 25mg Benadryl at night a few times for my allergies, that also seemed to help my sleep. I’ve tried many antidepressants over the years & so far this is the only one that seems to be helping. I noticed improvement in depression in about 2-3 weeks. I take it at lunch or I’ll forget.
