Ingredients

  • SERTRALINE 50mg

How do I take/use this medicine?

Take Sertraline exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.

You may need to take Sertraline for some weeks before the full benefits can be felt. Do not be discouraged if you do not feel better soon after taking the medicine. Sertraline must be taken regularly for it to work well.

Do not stop taking Sertraline unless instructed by your doctor. You may feel unwell if Sertraline is stopped suddenly. If your doctor decides that you no longer need Sertraline, he will usually reduce your dose slowly before stopping it altogether.

You may take Sertraline with or without food. Try to take it at the same time every day.

Sertraline may be available as normal tablets, controlled-release tablets or capsules, or as an oral solution.

If you have been given the normal tablet, swallow it with a glass of water.

If you have been given the controlled-release pill, swallow it whole with a glass of water. Do not chew or crush this type of tablet.

If you have been given the oral solution, use the dropper or measuring device provided to accurately measure out your dose. Dilute the dose in 120mL of water or juice just before you take it. Once diluted, drink it immediately.

What should I take note of while using/taking this medicine?

Alert your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not breastfeed while being treated with Sertraline.

Alert your doctor if you suffer from any of these conditions:

- mood disorders including bipolar disorder (mania or hypomania)
- mental illness
- diabetes
- epilepsy (fits)
- liver or kidney disease
- heart disease or recent heart attack
- have a history of bleeding disorders

Alert your doctor if you are undergoing electro-convulsive therapy (ECT).

Sertraline is not meant for children and teenagers younger than 18 years old, unless specifically instructed by the child's doctor.

Antidepressants such as Sertraline increase the risk of suicidal thoughts and behaviour in children, teenagers and young adults. As depression and some psychiatric disorders are themselves associated with an increased risk of suicide, it is important for you or your family members to monitor your condition especially at the start of treatment and if your dosage is still being adjusted. If you experience new or sudden changes in mood, behaviour, thoughts or feelings or a worsening of your depression with suicidal thoughts or attempts, harm to self or harm to others, contact your doctor immediately.

When should I not use this medicine?

Do not take Sertraline if you are taking or have taken other mood medicines known as monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) in the last 14 days. Some examples of MAOIs include isocarboxazid, phenelzine, moclobemide, selegiline and tranylcypromine. Alert your doctor immediately if you are taking or have taken any of these medicines or other MAOIs.

Alert your doctor if you are taking an antipsychotic medicine known as pimozide.

Are there any restrictions on the type of food I can take?

Avoid alcohol. Alcohol, even in small amounts, can worsen the drowsiness caused by Sertraline. It can also affect your reaction time and make it unsafe for you to drive or take part in activities in which you need to be alert.

Why do I need this medicine?

Sertraline is used to treat depression.

It can also be used to treat anxiety disorders such as panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) or an eating disorder known as bulimia nervosa.

Sertraline may also be used together with other medicines to treat other depressive conditions as decided by your doctor.

Sertraline belongs to a group of antidepressants known as Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors (SSRIs).

What side effects could I experience?

Sertraline may make you drowsy or dizzy. If you are affected, do not drive or take part in any activity in which you need to be alert.

Other common side effects include indigestion, nausea, diarrhoea, loss of appetite, dry mouth, difficulty sleeping, ejaculation delay, menstrual irregularities, increased sweating, weakness, tiredness, hot flushes, rash, chest pain, fast heartbeat, headache, yawning, anxiety, tingling of the fingers and toes.

Alert your doctor if any of these side effects are severe or refuse to go away.

Other side effects are less common but may need medical help. Alert your doctor if you develop any of these symptoms:
- hallucinations
- unusual restlessness and the inability to rest or sit still
- agitation or extreme, unexplained excitement (non-stop talking, moving or gesticulating)
- very fast, irregular or pounding heartbeat
- difficulty breathing
- severe muscle spasm or stiffness

How should I store this medicine?

Store in a cool, dry place away from the reach of children.

Medicines must not be used past the expiry date.

Can I take/use this with other medicines?

Do not take Sertraline if you are taking or have taken other mood medicines known as monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) in the last 14 days. Some examples of MAOIs include isocarboxazid, phenelzine, moclobemide, selegiline and tranylcypromine.
