Question Zoloft and Insomnia

Hey:

I've been back on the Zoloft for about 7 weeks now and I'm not sleepin' much anymore. The first night I took Zoloft I slept like a lil' baby. But every night since I've been starin' at the ceiling countin' sheep...if ya catch my drift? I'm lucky to get 3 or 4 hours of restless sleep. I don't even get tired in the daytime. I never had this problem when I was on Zoloft before. As a matter of fact, the Zoloft improved my sleep back then.

Anybody have this problem with Zoloft???

Re: Zoloft and Insomnia

Frank, I've never had that problem before. I take mine before bed. If you are taking yours before bed, try switching to mornings or vice versa. That might solve your problem. If that doesn't help ask your doc for a sleep aid or something. Do you drink alot of caffeine during the day? That may be a problem too. Hope you get it figured out soon.

Thumbs up Re: Zoloft and Insomnia

I do take it at bedtime. I'll switch to mornings, that's a good idea. I drink Coke/Dr. Pepper, etc. but not a lot. I'll stop drinking it at night.

Thanks.

Re: Zoloft and Insomnia

Frank, I think you jinxed me last night! LOL! I could NOT sleep for anything. Very restless, maybe 3-4 hours if that, tossing and turning, etc... But then again, it could just be that I decreased my xanax from .5 to .25 last night before bed also. Can you believe I laid there and thought about your post most of the night?! Haha! I had to share this with you, thought it was quite amusing.

Hope I'm not bi-polar. I took a test at my Doc's office once and he said I'm "definetly not bi-polar, which is good." I do tend to cycle between high anxiety and low depression though.
