Sertraline Overview

Sertraline, sold under the brand name Zoloft among others, is an antidepressant of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class.[9] The efficacy of sertraline for depression is similar to that of other antidepressants, and the differences are mostly confined to side effects. Sertraline is better tolerated than the older tricyclic antidepressants, and it may work better than fluoxetine for some subtypes of depression. Sertraline is effective for panic disorder, socia...

Why was greenstone sertraline discontinued?

After researching online and my own experience, camber sertraline works as well as greenstone. I could only take greenstone, now I’m on brand name Zoloft. Walgreens has a card from Pfizer that saves me hundreds of dollars a month. After a year I’ll need to get my insurance and doctor to approve a tier reduction for the price of the brand name. ## Hello J, I have some bittersweet news to deliver. It turns out that Greenstone was the generic brand owned by Pfizer, which is the company that manufactuers the brand name Zoloft. On the bright side the pills are nearly identical only differing in color dye inactive ingredients. From what I read it was no longer in the companies best interest to continue manufacturing the generic and decided to only manufacture the brand name. If yo...

Taking Phentermine with Sertraline

Has anyone that is currently prescribed Sertraline had any issues when taking Phentermine? Are there interactions between the two? ## Not a good idea . Zoloft is a leveler which pulls you down . Adderall is not the same thing as phentermine and should never be compared as such . ## A drug called Effexor or other anti depressant is often paired with any type of Behavior RX as combining bupropion with instead of a flattening drug like Zoloft/Sertraline can produce painful behaviors for the patient ## Sertraline, and Phentermine tend to increase the effects of each other, which may more severe side effects than usual, such as insomnia, nervousness, headache, and irritability. This combination could reach toxic levels, so it is generally best to avoid prescribing these medications together....

aurobindo sertraline

I have been taking two 25mg in Sertraline and now I take one 50mg, I prefer to take two 25mg tablets because taking a 50mg tablet is to much for me to take all at once, but my pharmacist say that they have never given me 25mg in sertraline, but I sure that they have. ## Have you talked to your doctor about writing the prescription as two 25mg tablets, rather than 50mgs? If so, then the pharmacy has to dispense them that way, regardless of what their past records show, so the problem would be eliminated. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Sertraline as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight changes. Ref: Medline Plus Sertraline

Trouble swallowing Cipla Sertraline

My blue 50 mg cipla sertraline pills get stuck in my throat. I can't dislodge them with water. They dissolve slowly, and feel like they are burning my throat. What is the ph of these pills? ## In most cases, that means that you aren't swallowing them with enough liquid. The proper way to take tablets is to place them as far back on your tongue as possible, to the point where you almost gag, then swallow them with a mouthful of water, and make sure to finish the full 8oz glass of water afterwards. If you are doing this, however, and are still having a problem, you should consult your doctor as it might be indicative of some other problem, such as acid reflux damage, or esophageal spasms. The reason it doesn't dislodge with water, or other liquid, is because the pill isn't...

Green pill LU 602

What is a green pill with LU on one side and 602 on the other? ## I think that the imprint should actually read LU G02 where the G kind of looks like a 6 and the 0 is more like a solid cutout (NDC 68180-0468). Check out the image on the Lupin Pharma product page for Lovastatin 20 mg, which is a cholesterol lowering drug. Does the image match what you found? Inactive Ingredients: - Anhydrous Lactose - Butylated Hydroxyanisole - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - D&c Yellow No. 10 - Fd&c Blue No. 2 - Lactose Monohydrate - Magnesium Stearate - Starch, Pregelatinized Corn ## I located a couple pills with LU on them. One says LU D01 and it's green. This is Sertraline 25 mg, which is an antidepressant of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class. I also located another pi...

The pills my mother got today were yellow oblong pills, but sertraline hcl are usually pinkish or blue... These yellow oblong shaped tabets are imprinted with LU on the front and d03 on the back. ## To be honest, the colors actually mean nothing, that is entirely up to the whit and whim of the manufacturer. That said, she did get the correct pills. LU D03 does contain 100mgs of Sertraline, a generic for Zoloft, an antidepressant that is also used to treat other conditions, such as OCD. Its common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and headache.

Greenstone Sertraline Discontinued

How do I find the inactive ingredients in Greenstone Sertraline? How can I find a generic that has the same inactive ingredients? I am very sensitive to chemicals. ## Hi Sue, If you have a specific pill imprint, it could be possible to identify the inactive ingredients of that tablet. Depending on the dosage/etc, each available milligram is likely to have a different set of binders & fillers. The 25mg oblong green tablet marked "G 4960" with a National Drug Code of 59762-4960 contains: Calcium Phosphate, Dibasic, Dihydrate D & c Yellow No. 10 Fd & c Blue No. 1 Fd & c Red No. 40 Aluminum Oxide Hydroxypropyl Cellulose (Type H) Hypromelloses Magnesium Stearate Cellulose, Microcrystalline Polyethylene Glycols Polysorbate 80 Titanium Dioxide The 50mg oblong blue tabl...
