Consultation

Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

Zoloft is typically taken in the morning. However, if you find it sedating, it would in that case be acceptable to take it in the evening instead.

Dr Sheppe,

I forgot to mention, with my list of meds, I'm taking 5mg of Ambien at nite for sleep.

Last nite was the first nite that, by Drs. orders, I went from 25mgs of Zoloft to 50. I slept well, but remembered a dream VERY clearly.
