Hey everyone,

Since starting to take Sertraline 12-14 days ago ive been having trouble sleeping. Can anyone give any tips on how to fall asleep better? Because im so drained out i just need to rest.

    See if your GP will prescribe a short supply of sleeping pills. I took Zopiclone for a few weeks and cut them in half to make them last longer. Take your A/D's in the morning, exercise, dont play on your phone or watch TV in the bedroom, read before bed, dont lie in, nap during the day and try to get into a pattern ie get up and go to bed at the same time. Its tough though, i still suffer with the insomnia, it does get easier though.
