Anxiety and Zoloft
I have been having really bad anxiety on and off.  The Dr. gave me Zoloft and it seems to have helped with my anxiety.  But as it is I have a very hard time getting restful sleep.  When I do sleep I have ongoing dreams and my mind doesn't get any rest.  Now with the Zoloft my sleep is much less restful. Any suggestions?

All meds come with side effects. And some of those side effects can be very bothersome. How long have you been on Zoloft? If it's been for a short time this side effect may go away. If it keeps up though, ask your Dr about changing to a different med.

when my doctor put me on Zoloft he also gave me Ativan.Zoloft is for depression and anxiety.But it takes awhile for Zoloft to kick in,so the Ativan is there to help get adjusted.

I'm newly pregnant and take Zoloft 150 mg. I came down from 200 mg. I'm afraid of it hurting the baby.
