Can Zoloft help you focus if you have ADD? Check this out: when you have depression you usually have little to no motivation for things. It seems that (whether directly or indirectly) Zoloft increases your motivation, along with other things that we need not be concerned about. So could it then help you focus since it will increase your motivation? It is thought that focus and motivation are very close concepts.

Yes, it is sometimes used for ADD/ADHD. My son was tried on Zoloft for ADHD but unfortunately he had a very bad reaction to it and we had to discontinue it but it can sometimes help improve focus, motivation and concentration. I think this is more of an "off label" use however.
