zoloft and sleepiness

i just started zoloft last night.  DH took night duty so I could sleep, and I did.  However I keep getting overwhelmingly exhausted in waves.  Could this be a side effect of my body getting used to it?

any idea how long it lasts? 

To my boys:  I will love you for you Not for what you have done or what you will become I will love you for you I will give you the love The love that you never knew

Re: zoloft and sleepiness

  • My ob did warn that sleepiness could be a side effect. I didn't experience any of it because my dose is so low (only 25 mg) but I was told if I did it could be as long as a week until your body gets used to it.

  • I'm on a low dose as well and I usually end up getting really sleepy about an hour or so after I take it.  When LO wakes up for his midnight feeding, I'm usually barely awake enough to feed him. 

     So there's this boy. He kinda stole my heart. He calls me "Mom"

  • It is a side effect, when I first started taking it I could barely walk up the stairs!
