  • I don't, but one of the side effects is drowsiness, it supposed to make you rekax. Some people it affects worst than others. How long have you been taking it? You might have to try something else like celexa, which isn't as hard on you as zoloft.

  • You should talk to your Dr. and see if there's something else for you or maybe a lower dose of zoloft would work.
