When Should I Take Zoloft [Sertraline]? Mornings Or Night? Empty Stomach Or Not?

My doctor prescribed me 50 MG Zoloft [sertraline]. I'm just wondering, when is the best time to take it? Should I take it in the morning or at night? Normally, I have trouble falling asleep, so would it be better to take it at night, assuming that this makes you drowzy.

Also, if it's taken in the morning, should it be on an empty stomach?

Also, I'm on a thyroid medication called Levothyroxine, which I have to take in the morning.

Thanks

Re: When Should I Take Zoloft [Sertraline]? Mornings Or Night? Empty Stomach Or Not?

Hello EddieRanger. I take 200mg of Zoloft on an empty stomach in the morning. I haven't had any issues with drowsiness until I increased my dosage to 200mg. I don't have problems with falling asleep, but if the Zoloft helps you with sleeping it sounds like taking it an night would be ideal for you. Keep in mind though your body may acclimatize to the med's side effects and it may not make you as drowsy the longer you are on it.
