My Mood: Is Zoloft known to make people severely fatigued?

Default Is Zoloft known to make people severely fatigued?

Hello! (I'm new here!)

About a year and half ago, I started taking Zoloft for my anxiety. Let me first say that it has greatly improved my life. Iím emotionally stable, and generally feel content.

The problem is that Iím constantly feeling fatigued, no matter what time of day. Even after a healthy amount of sleep (anywhere between 7 to 9 hours), I still wake up feeling unrested. Itís taken a huge hit on my productivity.

Thing is, Iím unsure if itís the medication or notÖ
So, my question is this:
1. Has anyone else experience severe fatigue with Zoloft?
2. If so, did you try an alternative medication?

I cant take Zoloft it made me very sick and dizzy.I would get so hot and sweaty from it so I can imagine it would make you tired.

Thanks for sharing! From what I gather, a lot of people try a few different medications before finding the right match for them. Hopefully I'll be able to speak with a psychiatrist soon to discuss trying something new.

Though, I'm curious... How do you cope with that transition? I imagine going from one medication to another is a difficult process. Old anxieties and depression will likely reappear when you're weaning off your current med to go on another.
