I'm working on a psychology project and need to know what Zoloft really does to help users, but I can't find answers anywhere.
Zoloft is used in the treatment of depression; social anxiety disorder; panic disorder; post traumatic stress disorder; obsessive compulsive disorder (and more), and belongs to the drug class selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Risk cannot be ruled out during pregnancy. Zoloft is not subject to the Controlled Substances Act.
What it really does is make it so we can function. Many of us will call it the black hole and if we're wise we never want to go there again. So depressed we can't even get out of bed in the morning. No will to do anything. Unable to concentrate on anything. You care about nothing. Angry too. Meds like zoloft get us out of that and able to live a close to normal life. No therapy can do that without the help of an antidepressant.
I can't answer to what it does for anxiety, but we have others here who can help you with that.
