Sertraline is an antidepressant medication, commonly marketed as Zoloft. In addition to use for depression, it is also prescribed to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic attacks, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social anxiety disorder, and symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder.[1] It is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI),[1] meaning it increases serotonin levels by blocking the brain's reabsorption of the neurotransmitter.[2]
