Effectiveness is similar to other antidepressants.Sertraline is taken by mouth. Common side effects include diarrhea, sexual dysfunction, and troubles with sleep. Serious side effects include an increased risk of suicide in those less than 25 years old and serotonin syndrome. It is unclear whether use during pregnancy or breastfeeding is safe. It should not be used together with MAO inhibitormedication. Sertraline is believed to work by increasing serotonin effects in the brain.
