Actually a less common side effect of sertraline is muscle pain.
I have been taking sertraline for more than 10 years and it works well for me. I take 100mg a day. I have heard of doctors prescribing this for people who also have chronic pain as I also do. When someone has chronic pain, sometimes depression comes with it for some people so doctors do prescribe this. I have not heard that it is used for pain directly.
Hope this helps
