How does Zoloft work?
Mood disorders such as depression are believed to be caused by an imbalance between serotonin and other neurotransmitters in your brain. Medications such as Zoloft work by restoring the chemical balance of neurotransmitters.
Zoloft can improve your mood, decrease your anxiety, and unwanted thoughts. It can help to improve your sleeping patterns, increase your energy level, and bring back your interest in daily tasks.
Zoloft dosage and treatment
The typical starting dosage of Zoloft is 50mg taken at the same time, once a day, with or without food. Based on your response to the treatment the doctor may increase your dosage to 50-200mg per day.
It is important to keep taking Zoloft even if you feel better.
You should not stop taking Zoloft until you consult with your doctor as stopping abruptly could cause unwanted side effects such as headache, tiredness, sleep changes, and mood swings.
