Generally yes but...: Any medicine or herb that is sedating can have an additive effect with Zoloft (sertraline) but there is no known direct interaction. However, becoming drowsy after taking Natra Sleep is probably what you are hoping for. I routinely prescribe these herbs for patients taking Zoloft (sertraline) and similar drugs and find most people tolerate this combination quite well.

Should be ok: It should be ok to take two together - could not find interaction.
