Zoloft Question

I have a small dose of Zoloft 25mg that the doc said I can try for anxiety if I want. The only thing is I am afraid to take it becuase I keep hearing about insomnia side effect of SSRIs. I sorta have problems already with that and I dont want to be taking something that will make it wost. Anyone on here not had that side effect or slept better with Zoloft or any other SSRI?

Re: Zoloft Question

zoloft is a prozac type med and affects everyone differently, insomnia isnt a common side effect
zoloft can take up to 6 weeks to work and the smallest effective dose is 50, so you need sufficient tablets to try it properly, often sample packs dont really have enough
its a good idea to start with a small dose and work up after a week or 2
