I'm taking Zoloft for PPD. The firs day that I took Zoloft, I felt really sleepy 3 hours later and I went bed early, which was heavenly for me because I've been suffering from Insomnia. The next day, I felt different. I felt calm. I felt like even if I was going to get upset or excited it was more balanced like it wasn't extreme like it usually is and it didn't linger and my blood wouldn't boil. Things didn't bother me like it usually did and I was generally more pleasant to be around. Could Zoloft really be working that quickly? or is this a placebo effect? Like do I just feel different because I know that I've taken a pill? I felt like it really did work that quickly but I've heard that it takes weeks before it actually kicks in.Answer Question

It usually takes about 2-4weeks for a person to feel the effects of SSRIs. You may be experiencing placebo although some people have also reported such observation when they started using Zoloft. The Zoloft side effects would also last for 2 weeks up to a month.
