Sometimes I suffer from restless nights and insomnia and was wondering if melatonin is safe to take with Zoloft.
Can you take melatonin (10mg) with Zoloft?

Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: Zoloft (sertraline), melatonin
Using sertraline together with melatonin may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, and difficulty concentrating. Some people, especially the elderly, may also experience impairment in thinking, judgment, and motor coordination. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Also avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.

My psychiatrist recommended that I take it when I mentioned I had a hard time sleeping. I was taking 5mg. but he increased it to 10mg. and it works. I hope you’ll be able to get some sleep.(I use the drops)
