  1. I am on 75mg sertraline everyday for anxiety and depression. The medicine made me numb emotionally which I think is good because I don't feel suicidal anymore. Everything is good about the medicine for me emotionally except I feel so tired and wanted to sleep all day and don't want to work. The med made me so tired all day. I can sleep 18 hours everyday and still feel very tired and sluggish. Now I don't even have the mode to go to work. I think my boss is going to fire me very soon. -.- I am in trouble again. I don't know what to do except wait for the next appointment to see my psychiatrist on Wednesday. Today I have work and I don't have the energy to go to work today.

    What time do you take it? If it's making you sleepy during the day it may be a good idea to take it at night.
     
  3. I am already taking the medicine at 10pm before bedtime. I cannot wake up at all in the morning. I am soooo tired and heavy. It's lethargic feeling.

    How long have you been taking the sertraline? It may be a side effect that calms down. Personally when I took sertraline it gave me insomnia so I had to take it in the morning.
     
  5. Since I am admitted into the hospital psychiatric ward on suicide watch. I think almost 10 days already. It's only 75mg and it's making me so tired.
