Zoloft (Sertraline) 50mg
Zoloft (Sertraline) 50mg is a type of antidepressant known as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). It works by enhancing the activity of a neurotransmitter called serotonin in the brain.
Zoloft (sertraline) is a medication that’s frequently prescribed to treat a number of psychiatric disorders including depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and social anxiety disorder. It’s also often prescribed for people who’ve been diagnosed with panic disorder, a condition that causes frequent episodes of specific symptoms called panic attacks.
If your doctor suggests you take Zoloft as part of a treatment plan for panic disorder, it can be helpful to learn how the drug might work to help you manage your symptoms. The more you understand about any medication you take, including how it affects the body and any potential side effects it might cause, the more comfortable you’re likely to feel when taking it.
In very rare cases, an antidepressant such as Zoloft can cause high levels of serotonin to build up in the body. This is most likely to happen to someone who’s taking another medication that can elevate serotonin such as other antidepressants, certain pain or headache medications, and the herbal supplement St. John’s wort.
Signs and symptoms of serotonin syndrome include anxiety, agitation, sweating, confusion, tremors, restlessness, lack of coordination, and a rapid heart rate. Seek immediate medical attention if you have any of these signs or symptoms.
Since drugs like Zoloft affect the brain, you may be worried about how taking them will affect you that you’ll feel strange or have trouble thinking, for instance. Truthfully, there’s no way to predict how an SSRI will make you feel since everyone responds differently to the drug.
One thing that is for sure is that you won’t get relief from your symptoms right away as the drug will need to be in your system for some time before you feel the full effects.
Sexual Side Effects
One of the most potentially bothersome side effects of Zoloft and other SSRIs are sexual problems. These can include reduced sexual desire or difficulty reaching orgasm, or less frequently inability to maintain an erection (erectile dysfunction). These can be so distressing for some people that they choose not to take the medication and live with their psychiatric symptoms.
