Does Zoloft make you sleepy then wind you up?  I am tapering valium so hard to know "what is doing what." though I don't take much valium (it's in your system for 200 hours).

If you've been taking the valium for awhile, remember, it's an addictive drug unless you were only taking it once in a while.  But the withdrawal from a benzo would probably be a lot of anxiety plus other stuff, while sedation is more likely a side effect of starting a medication, either a benzo or an antidepressant.  But when a benzo wears off, it can make you sleep as well.
