Yes, but...: For psychosis and hallucinations related to psychosis, antipsychotic medications are the best treatment. Sertraline is an antidepressant and useful if there is a concurrent depression with the psychotic disorder. Sertraline will not treat the psychosis or hallucinations though.

Zoloft (sertraline): Zoloft (sertraline) is antidepressant. Can work if psychosis is part of depression, along with antipsychotic medication.
