A 37-year-old member asked:

Should i take valium with zoloft (sertraline)?

Potentially: This is a safe combination with medical supervision. The dose of sertraline typically should not exceed 200 mg although certain patients could require more. The dose of diazepam can be variable and if you are taking more than thirty milligrams a day i would be cautious particularly with consuming alcohol or operating a motor vehicle. Talk with your prescribing physician if you have concerns!

Can Valium and Zoloft (sertraline) be prescribed?

Drug interaction: Valium and zoloft (sertraline) can be safely taken together. This should have been told to you by prescribers unless they were different prescribers. You should keep all your docs informed of all your meds prescribed by others, and don't take other peoples meds.

Individualized.: Zoloft is not a pill like Xanax (alprazolam) or Ativan that makes you feel different. It takes 4-12 weeks to even notice it to start helping, it has side effects that vary by individual, and it usually helps with coping with anxiety/ depression feelings.

When should I take my sertraline (zoloft)?

Depends: Sertraline makes some people drowsy. For them, it should be taken at night. Others feel it has a caffeine effect; for them it's a morning pill. Either way, the drug lasts all day, so in terms of depression or anxiety treatment, it doesn't matter.
