Is it Okay to break sertraline 100mg TAB AUR A 1 8 yellow oblong in half?

Probably: Any tablet can be broken in half unless it is sustained release. Sustained release (SR) means they are absorbed more slowly and breaking the pill diminishes this effect. I do not know of an SR form of sertraline. The real question is why you need to break it in half?

No: Zoloft (sertraline) nor any other antidepressants changes the color of your urine, and your urine should be yellow.

No: More likely, you are not drinking adequate fluids. The best drink is water, 6-8 8ounce glasses per day.
