Depends upon patient: Zoloft is a brand of generic Sertraline which is in SSRI class of antidepressants & anti-anxiety medications. Cipralex is a brand (not sold in the States) of generic Escitalopram, another SSRI. As a class of medications, they all have similar side effects w/each pharmaceutical company claiming that theirs is better than rest. Only you can decide which is best for you w/least side effects.
