Ativan short term until zoloft kicks in, due to potential for addiction if regular use.

When should I take my sertraline (zoloft)?

Depends: Sertraline makes some people drowsy. For them, it should be taken at night. Others feel it has a caffeine effect; for them it's a morning pill. Either way, the drug lasts all day, so in terms of depression or anxiety treatment, it doesn't matter.

Individualized.: Zoloft is not a pill like Xanax (alprazolam) or Ativan that makes you feel different. It takes 4-12 weeks to even notice it to start helping, it has side effects that vary by individual, and it usually helps with coping with anxiety/ depression feelings.
