my psychiatrist put me on zoloft today and told me to take it before bed in case it makes me feel sick... but someone told me i'll feel sick in the morning if i take it before i sleep. does anyone else have experience with this?

I had a handful of side effects but mostly the resolved fairly quick. I took mine in the morning before work and still do. You will just have to experiment with the time situation and see if you do better before bed or not. Luckily you are easing into it, I was put on 50mg then 100mg during the first week.

I tried a lot of stuff for mine but they wouldn't go away. I actually believed it wasn't the meds for a while and thought I had a sinus infection, which I went to my doctor for and was given stuff for that. Didn't work though and neither did any type of pain killers, it only went away when I decided to come off it.

Has anyone had any type of headache on Zoloft? The whole time I was on that I kept getting really horrible sinus type headaches that went away when I came off it.
Yes I got fairly annoying headaches during the first two weeks, they seem to be gone now.

Yeah, I felt aweful after starting to take zoloft. It was like having a constant hangover. I also was told to take it before I went to sleep, to help me sleep. I no longer take it though cause it made me sick a lot.

question about another possible side effect (i didn't want to start a new thread)

i'm getting random, sudden (but not severe or that frequent) cramps in what i would describe as the middle or upper part of my abdomen. is that normal???
