    ive always had trouble sleeping before and after zoloft, zoloft makes it a little worse but i heard it gets better.

    what side effects do you currently have from zoloft.

    i got severe anxiety and jittery from zoloft

      My side effects are my head feeling very weird like im forgetting things and kinda feels weird as well inside. Also I've got sleeping issues like as you know and just random other little things.

    I am the same... I have come off Mirtazepine a week ago and started Sert on Monday and I sleep max 5 hours usually broken so have been taking sedative antihistamines but I will try not to take them every night because then body gets used to them. I have a family memeber who is on SERTRALINE and sleep apparently sleep improves after a few weeks.

      I didn't suffer with anxiety when I started MIRT but when I wasn't helping with depression I started to get anxious. Extreme tiredness and sleepiness were the side effects but also increased apettite. I put 9kg since end of May and I was trying to eat well.... mirt really slows your metabolism.

      Well, only on 45 mg for me. 15 mg was awful, I was feeling sedated all day after taking it.
