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

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.
