Generic Name: SERTRALINE - ORAL Pronounced: (SER-truh-leen) Zoloft Oral Uses
Sertraline is used to treat depression, panic attacks,
obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, social anxiety
disorder (social phobia), and a severe form of premenstrual syndrome
(premenstrual dysphoric disorder).
This medication may improve your mood, sleep, appetite,
and energy level and may help restore your interest in daily living. It may
decrease fear, anxiety, unwanted thoughts, and the number of panic attacks. It
may also reduce the urge to perform repeated tasks (compulsions such as
hand-washing, counting, and checking) that interfere with daily living.
Sertraline is known as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). It
works by helping to restore the balance of a certain natural substance
(serotonin) in the brain.

This time of year – springtime - brings sounds of birds outside of my window and lawnmowers cutting lawns on our street (somehow that sound, to me, signals warmer weather is here, something I look forward to all winter long) an...
Work stress seems to be a fact of life and there are no shortage of people willing to advise you how best to deal with it. The fact that people write whole books on the subject is testament to just how big an issue work stress has become, but how many of us have the time or inclination to wade through them?
A lot of stress is cumulative. That is, those irritating little things build up to a point where eventually something has to give. So, what are the little things we can do as a counter-measure and that we know are effective stress busters? Here's a few thoughts on the matter.
Choose your battles . Conflict is stressful but let's face it, if you took on everyone who pressed your buttons you'd never get your job done. One of the ways you can feel you have a little control is to pick off the small irritations and deal with those in a firm but fair way.
Use your breaks . Don't sit at your desk over lunch. Breaks are there for a reason. Get up, move around...
