    Hi Karen 

    I too take 50mgs, I’ve been on that dosage for 8 weeks now and they are working wonders for me, I have no intention on raising my mg anytime soon. With that being said the first 3-4 weeks I was also very tired and feeling sick for most of the day as I took my tablet in the morning but by the 4th or 5th week I started losing those side effects and now I feel much better. And don’t forget only you DR can tell you that you need to raise or lower your dosage! Hope this helps

    I used to wake up between midnight and 2am so I could sleep through that. Now I have no problems after taking them but that took a few months.

    Back when I took sertraline, I found it best to take at night so I could sleep through the side effects. Literally, right before my head hit the pillow, I'd take the med. I'll be going back on sertraline soon, and plan on taking it the same way again.

    Whichever time is less problematic for you, is the best time to take it. smile

    Hiya, I take mine at 7pm every evening so that by bedtime i'm relaxed enough to sleep also you sleep off any potential side affects. It works for me anyhow.

    I take my 50mg dose in the morning, with food - I found taking them on an empty stomach made my nausea worse.... 

    It's truly miserable I know, I was very nauseous for 4 weeks, no appetite, felt weak and light headed, and very tired ... 

    The side effects do slowly fade away, so do try to persevere. 

    I found sipping  Ginger tea to be helpful, as well as Ginger capsules (Holland & Barrett) x
