Yes : But depends on what dose you want to take, also as long as you are aware that cutting the dose may put you at risk of relapsing to depression.

Yes: Yes, zoloft (sertraline) can be cut in half, however take the medication as prescribed by your physician. Dont cut it in half unless you were directed to do so by your physician. You were given the medication at a certain dose to treat the symptoms you had. Take it as prescribed. Discuss other concerns with your prescribing physician.
