Overview Information on Sertraline
Pharmacist Tip
If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you realize it, unless it is close to the time for your next dose. Do not double a dose to make up for the missed dose.     
Sertraline is a medicine that belongs to a group of medicines called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Doctors prescribe sertraline to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social anxiety disorder (SAD), and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).

Zoloft® is the brand-name product for sertraline. Sertraline comes as either tablets or a liquid form. Your doctor will tell you how to take sertraline to treat your condition. Your doctor may adjust your dose of sertraline over time to best treat your condition. It is important to take sertraline at the same time every day. Never suddenly stop taking sertraline unless your doctor tells you to. If you suddenly stop taking sertraline, you could have side effects such as mood changes, irritability, agitation, dizziness, feeling sensations like electric shocks, confusion, and others. Some of these side effects could become serious. Talk with your doctor first if you are thinking about stopping sertraline.
