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. I have tried many different prescription drugs, and found that Imigran Nasal spray did the best job for me, as I constantly vomit not long after I get an aura. However, I have been put on Sertraline (Zoloft) 150mg (antidepressant) and I can no longer have Imigran, and my GP has given me Clotam 200mg. How effective is Clotam in easing migraines?

Full Question: I am a 59 year old female with a history of migraine headaches. I have found great success with Imitrex Nasal spray, giving me only a stiff neck afterwards. Now I have Chronic Fatigue and am on 100mg of Zoloft and 25 mg of trazodone to sleep. My psychiatrists says I can't use Imitrex with the Zoloft because I might get serotonin syndrome. I did use it before when I was on 50 mg of Zoloft. I can quit the trazodone and find other sleep medications if I can use the 100 mg of Zoloft and the Imitrex. If not, I'm stuck with other pain killers that are a drag and don't work that well. What is your opinion on my dilemma? Thank you, Anna. Answer: Dear Anna; Serotonin syndrome is very rare, but we get this question frequently. Please see another recent answer for more information HERE . It would also be advantageous to have your psychiatrist consult with the doctor who treats your Migraines. Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert About As...
