  • It may help with anxiety which may help you sleep better. I take celexa. No weight gain, no decreased interest in sex, and yes, I sleep better. I think it's a result of a calmer, happier, me.

  • All I can tell you about Zoloft is stay away from it. I have known many lives it has really screwed up.

  • My experience with Zoloft is that it keeps me awake. So I have to take it first thing in the morning. My doctor was surprised when I told her this, but said it's possible. The only way to really know if it's going to help is to try it.

  • I agree w/Hayley/Gm I was on Zoloft for 3 days and it made me crazy my son was on it and it made him hear voices I hate it,I am also so on Celexa and it helps to calm me and helps me to sleep the Zoloft might work for you but for me it was a nightmare,

  • Zoloft has the tendency to cause insomnia for some people. Although each person may have a different reaction to the drug. The side effects would also be heightened when mixing Zoloft and alcohol.
