Zoloft (sertraline): Not everyone gets side effects with zoloft (sertraline), (sertraline) even when the dose it raised. You are still well within a normal dose range. Many people need 150mg zoloft (sertraline) daily. Generally zoloft (sertraline) requires at least 4-6 weeks for effectiveness, although you may experience this sooner.
