Re: Zoloft and Sleeplessness
Clonazapam is a benzo or benzodiazepine. It is used to calm anxiety and it can make you sleepy, but there are better medicines for insomnia. My sister takes Ambien and loves it, but it is a sleeping pill and some doctors don't like to prescribe sleeping pills, especially if they think their patients are depressed. I would take the Zoloft as long as it works for you. Usually after 4-6 weeks you should know what to expect. When/if the insomnia gets to be too much, I would talk to your doctor about either stopping the Zoloft or adding a sleep med. It is very important to get your rest, no sleep will worsen your illness. Like I said before, don't just quit, let your doctor help you quit if you decide you don't want to take it anymore. I can't stress that enough.
