    Yes, I take 200mg daily of the generic and it put my depression in remission. Works great for me.

    It's the same thing. Most sertraline pills come in Hcl form (hydrochloride). That only means that the sertraline compounds are binded to the hydrochloride which acts as a binding agent so people can consume it.

    Just as well as what? The real Zoloft. Yes. The generic drugs are the exact same thing as the "real" thing. My sister-in-law is a pharmacist and told me that once the patent runs out on a drug, any drug maker can come along and make it. So, it doesn't make any difference which one you use. It's all a $ thing. It's not like generic products in the grocery store (you get what you pay for...)

  • yes, it is absolutely the same type of medication big pharmacy like Walgreen's use it all the time and it lowers your pharmacy bill if type n sertraline instead of Zoloft
