Zoloft takers, what time do you take it? I’m thinking 10am bcs that way, I don’t have to worry about oversleeping on the weekends, this time is when my workplace is kind of chill, I can make sure I’ve had something to eat, etc. is this too late??

      In the morning when I wake up, so it's not at set time, as I get up very early for work and sleep longer on days off. I found that I could not sleep if I was taking it at night

      When I was on Zoloft I usually took it in the night (not common I know) because it was when I usually woke up or remembered to take it

      I just do it before bed. Saves me from forgetting. Joining that with a habit will make sure you actually take it, and I go to sleep every night! I take other medication when I wake up and that's not as good of a trigger for me. But like others said, the most important is that you do take it.

      Be careful with the side effects of this drug. Read the labels and if you experience them talk to your doctor about a different treatment.

      Took a high dose a Zoloft for 15 years, make sure you eat something and as long as it's within a few hours of normal it won't hurt anything. Even missing a day isn't the end of the world as it stays with your system for a while. ALSO (trigger warning) don't accidently chew one you WILL throw up!

        @Thegeckoguy I literally chewed one today after I brushed my teeth and it made my mouth and tongue numb, very weird😂

      Sounds like you’re thinking right. As far as I understand it’s not strict like birth control, the effects are in your system for longer than 24 hours. Even if you forget for half a day, there probably won’t be any side effects or withdrawal. Just make sure not to take it too soon before your next dose, better to skip a day than double dose.

        @kirstyelly I do this sometimes with my birth control oops 😅😅

      I usually take it around 10-11 am. No specific time, I’m just starting so I’m not feeling anything yet.

        @Rayshealth oh it doesn’t have to be at the EXACT time everyday? I take birth control and if I take it an hour later than usual, it sometimes doesn’t work the same
