Sertraline (trade names Zoloft and others) is an antidepressant of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class. Sertraline is primarily prescribed for major depressive disorder in adult outpatients as well as obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder, in both adults and children. In 2013, it was the most prescribed antidepressant and second most prescribed psychiatric medication (after alprazolam) on the U.S. retail market, with over 41 million prescriptions.

Differences with other newer antidepressants are subtle and mostly confined to side effects. It is similar in tolerability profile to other SSRIs, with the types of adverse events usually including diarrhea, nausea, and sexual dysfunction. The incidence of diarrhea was higher with sertraline—especially when prescribed at higher doses—in comparison to other SSRIs.

Sertraline is used for a number of conditions, including major depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), panic disorder and social anxiety disorder. It has also been used for premature ejaculation and vascular headaches but evidence of the effectiveness in treating those conditions is not robust.

A 2008 review concluded that 51% of studies of various SSRIs yielded positive outcomes. Sertraline is statistically similar in efficacy to other SSRIs such as paroxetine, citalopram, escitalopram and venlafaxine (SNRI). Evidence suggests that sertraline may be more effective than fluoxetine (Prozac) for some subtypes of depression.

Evidence does not show a benefit in children with depression.

With depression in dementia, there is no benefit compared to either placebo or mirtazapine.

Sertraline is effective for the treatment of social phobia. Improvement in scores on the Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale were found with sertraline but not with placebo. A combination of sertraline and cognitive behavioural therapy has a superior response rate when used in children.

There is tentative evidence that sertraline, as well as other antidepressants, can help with the symptoms of general anxiety disorder.[41] The trials have generally been short in length and the medicals are associated with side effects.

Maintenance dose: 50 to 100 mg orally once a day

Comments:

Compared to other SSRIs, sertraline tends to be associated with a higher rate of psychiatric side effects and diarrhea. It tends to be more activating (that is, associated with a higher rate of anxiety, agitation, insomnia, etc.) than other SSRIs, aside from fluoxetine.
