About Sertraline

What is Sertraline?

Sertraline is the generic version of the brand name antidepressant Zoloft. Generic Zoloft is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, or SSRI.

How does sertraline work?

SSRIs like sertraline help regulate your mood by increasing the amount of serotonin in your brain. Serotonin is a chemical that helps you feel good.

Boosting your body’s serotonin levels helps you feel better and improves your mental health.

How does sertraline treat depression and anxiety?

Depression and Anxiety are caused by many factors. One factor is a lack of serotonin.

Since sertraline works by increasing serotonin in the body, it can help relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety.

How effective is sertraline in treating depression and anxiety?

Sertraline is a highly effective antidepressant. And it’s one of the most popular. Since sertraline and Zoloft are the same medication, they both work equally well.

What dosages does sertraline come in for depression?

Generic Zoloft is available in 25, 50, and 100 mg tablets. An effective adult dose of sertraline for depression often starts at 50 mg per day. Your doctor or nurse practitioner may gradually increase your dose to a maximum of 200 mg per day.

Your specific dose will depend on your medical history.

Is sertraline FDA-approved for depression or anxiety treatment?

Sertraline is FDA-approved for treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). Sertraline is also approved to treat other mental conditions, like panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Even though sertraline isn’t FDA-approved for anxiety treatment, it is commonly prescribed for that purpose.

Do I need a prescription for generic Zoloft?

You should only take sertraline or other antidepressants under the direction and care of a medical team. That’s because antidepressants are powerful medicines. While sertraline is effective for treating depression and anxiety, there are also risks associated with the medicine.

All antidepressants carry a risk of suicidal thoughts in children, teens, and young adults with mental disorders like depression. Sertraline can also cause a dangerous reaction if you take it with or near another class of antidepressants called monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs).

Because of these risks, you must have a prescription in order to get sertraline. Fortunately, the Lemonaid service makes it simple for you to get a prescription for sertraline.
