    I've been on 100mg of zoloft for about 10 days now and i feel really burnt out and crappy so i'm considering going back down to 50mg. If i go back down will it take time for me to adjust to 50mg again?

    Sedating meds and a night out

    If you take daily meds in the evening that more or less knock you out, when would you take them if you were on a late night out? I've got a hen party to go on in a couple of weeks and we won't get back til 3am :nod2: just take it when I get in and sleep in late is what I'm thinking?
