buy now zoloft sertraline for the treatment of depression What is Zoloft?
Zoloft, generic name sertraline, is an anti-depressant medication. Sertraline is approved to treat depression, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, social anxiety disorder (social phobia), and other conditions.

Zoloft is classified as a type of drug known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs). It positively affects chemicals that exist in the brain and that may be unbalanced in people with depression, anxiety, or other similar diseases.

Zoloft comes as a tablet or a liquid to be taken by mouth once daily, and should be taken at the same time every day. It may take a few weeks or longer before the full benefit of Zoloft is noticed.

What are the side effects?
Zoloft side effects are usually not severe, and typically decrease with continued treatment. The most common Zoloft side effects are gastrointestinal disturbances such as nausea and diarrhea. Sexual problems are fairly common in both men and women. Fluctuations in weight are not uncommon if Zoloft is effectively treating depression. Individuals, who have atypical depression, may have a decreased appetite and lose weight, while individuals who have classic symptoms of depression may see slight increases in their weight, as their appetite returns. Rarely, severe Zoloft side effects can occur, which can be due to an allergic reaction, or if an individual is prescribed multiple antidepressants that have similar effects on serotonin. High levels of serotonin, called serotonin syndrome, can cause erratic behavior, vomiting and dizziness, which requires prompt medical attention.

How long does it take for Zoloft to work?
Appetite and sleep energy may get improved in one or two weeks of Zoloft usage while depressive disorders may get resolved in six to eight weeks of usage. How long does Zoloft take to work is usually subjective.

Other Options for Depression
Zoloft is not the only choice for treating depression. There are several different types of SSRI's, and if these don't work there are other types of anti-depressants. Talk therapy, with a psychologist, therapist, or social worker, is also an option.
