When Is The Best Time Of Day To Take Zoloft?

I just started taking Zoloft 50mg,(5 days ago). I take it at night before bed, but I'm so tired during the day that I thought maybe I should switch to mornings.

Answer

Hi, Brenda. It might be that in time, the Zoloft won't make you quite as tired and this could be a temporary side effect. The other thing is, if it's making you too tired during the day when you're taking it at night, I'd be afraid of it being even worse taking it during the day. You could talk to your doctor about it, or maybe try taking it during the day on a week-end or a time when it's not critical for you to be alert. A pharmacist might even have some suggestions about it.

Thank you for your question, hope that helped.
