Hi This medicine improve your mood, sleep appetite, and energy level and may help restore your interest in daily living. Zoloft is an antidepressant belonging to a group of drugs called SSRIs. Zoloft is used to treat depression, panic disorder, anxiety disorders, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). Antidepressant medications are used to treat a variety of conditions, including depression and other mental/mood disorders. These medications can help prevent suicidal thoughts/attempts and provide other important benefits. However, a small number of people (especially people younger than 25) who take antidepressants for any condition may experience worsening depression, other mental/mood symptoms, or suicidal thoughts/attempts. Therefore, it is very important to talk with the doctor about the risks and benefits of antidepressant medication (especially for people younger than 25), even if treatment is not for a mental/mood condition. Tell the doctor right away if you notice worsening depression/other psychiatric conditions, unusual behavior changes (including possible suicidal thoughts/attempts), or other mental/mood changes (including new/worsening anxiety, panic attacks, trouble sleeping, irritability, hostile/angry feelings, impulsive actions, severe restlessness, very rapid speech). Be especially watchful for these symptoms when a new antidepressant is started or when the dose is changed. Show More Sertraline is used to treat depression, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, social anxiety disorder (social phobia), and a severe form of premenstrual syndrome (premenstrual dysphoric disorder). This medication may improve your mood, sleep, appetite, and energy level and may help restore your interest in daily living.
We've all seen the television commercials for prescription drugs. With their seemingly endless list of side effects, some worse than the condition they purport to treat, they would be funny if they weren't so disturbing. Zoloft is one such medication and has it's own list of side-effects including the one we will discuss today— Zoloft (Sertraline hydrochloride) is prescribed for the treatment of depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), social anxiety disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorders (PMDD). Studies have demonstrated a link between zoloft and insomnia with about a third of users experiencing symptoms. This was more pronounced among patients being treated for OCD, but less (about 10%) for women being treated for (PMDD). Let's take a look at some of the issues facing Zoloft users. The overwhelming number of patients reported symptoms of insomnia the connection between Zoloft and insomnia is clear. Hi there-I have a 5 month old baby who sleeps well and is absolutely wonderful. I however have just started on Sertraline 50mg for sleep anxiety as of last night (I felt so sedated after 2 hours of taking it at 6pm I feel it's best to continue taking it in the evening? I've heard it can cause insomnia though which is not helping my anxiety at all nor giving me any confidence on relying on this drug-I do hate feeling out of control and atm I see relying on a medication long term as meaning im not able to deal with things by myself-but I need to sort my sleep anxiety out). Anyway short story: 3 years ago I was in a lot of pain over something which left me awake for 2 whole nights in a state of huge anxiety and panic. I took over the course of the second night 4 zopiclone tablets in a desperate bid to sleep and I feel the sedation, panic and the fact I still didn't sleep from that send me a bit crazy-I feared I was never going to sleep again. Dr gave me diazepam which I took and basically over the last 3 years I've had periods where I sleep well for weeks and take no sleep aids, then a bad night will trigger my anxiety and my safety in ensuring I sleep that night and don't repeat the nightmare of staying awake lies in taking sleep aids. When a 2.5mg diazepam tablet doesn't work and my heart is racing/mind racing/stomach churning ive often resorted to 10-12mg plus zopiclone to knock me out.
I would sleep with ease, but would remember my dreams very clearly and wake up feeling not restedI do still get this problem especially when Im overseas for short / long trips. It seems quite randomBeen on Zoloft for a long time, but the dream issue predates it. At some point the intensity of the. I have been on 25mg of Zoloft for a couple weeks. Most of the symptoms have gone away except for the sweating, dry mouth, and insomnia.
