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.

Full Question: I have suffered very severe migraines since I was about 4 years old, and I am now 26.

Can you give...
About a decade ago, a nurse I know tried to start an adult day care center in my town. I thought it sounded like a good idea, though I wasn't sure there was a market for it. I'd contracted some in-home care for my uncle and mother-in-law, and enough nursing home care for several family members- but adult day care was a new concept for me. My friend's efforts with the day care failed, perhaps because, like me, no one was familiar with the idea. When I asked her about it afterwards she said she was "ahead of her time." She now owns a franchised in-home care business. News.inquirer.com recently ran an in depth article titled "Adult day- care booming." One of the day cares they interviewed referred to themselves as "a best-kept secret." I think that secret is now out. Several nursing homes in my area have started adult day care services. Several of them also have child day care centers which allows fo...
