Sometimes people breathe better when the head of the bed is elevated to about a 30 degree angle. You might try this.
Zoloft usually takes a couple of weeks to be in a therapeutic range. The dose sometimes needs to be adjusted to find what works best for you but it is kind of a long process. Try to be patient but be in touch with your doctor if you feel you are getting worse, have any suicidal thoughts or feelings of wanting to do harm.
