No: There is no Cocaine or similar component of Cocaine in zoloft (sertraline), a non-addictive med. The closest connection i can make is that zoloft effects neurotransmission of serotonin, which can be involved in affecting mood. That's pretty much where the connection ends. Cocaine significantly impacts Dopamine neurotransmission & is highly addictive, both having stimulant & anesthetic properties.

NO: There is no narcotic in zoloft (sertraline). Why your tongue "feel kinda numb" is unknown but probably not related to the zoloft (sertraline).
Dr. Patrick Tapia
Psychiatry 13 years experience
No cocaine in Zoloft (sertraline): There is no Cocaine in commercially prepared sertraline. However, you might have some sort of allergic reaction to the filler in the tablet or something like that. Stay safe!
