Can You Get a Zoloft Prescription Online?

At PlushCare you can meet with an online doctor, and together see if Zoloft (seratraline) is right for you. If the doctor thinks Zoloft can you help, they can write you a prescription.

Let’s take a closer look at what Zoloft is and how you can get a Zoloft prescription online.

What is Zoloft?

Zoloft, also known as sertraline, is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs that are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) commonly used to treat depression and anxiety.

Other conditions that Zoloft may be used to treat include premenstrual dysphoric disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

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.
