My son was recently put on Zoloft for depression. His doctor has gradually increased the dose to the therapeutic dose love two weeks.MIT seems that once h got closer to the 100 mg dose, he has gotten more tired and wiped out. He takes it at night, but still is very tired and can't get up in the morning. Is this normal?

Medication trials are very individual - so what your son is experiencing may very well be side-effect issues.

I urge you to call your son's psychiatrist tomorrow and report how he is feeling. Zoloft wasn't a good med for my daughter either, it made her angrier and more violent..........you just never know! There are many other medication options the psychiatrist can suggest.

Take care!
