Can ritalin affect the working speed of Zoloft (sertraline) ? I mean will a person taking ritalin with Zoloft (sertraline) need more time to see benefit ?

In brief: See below

Depends on what the zoloft (sertraline) is treating - a stimulant like Ritalin can increase anxiety and this could interfere with the anxiety-reducing role of zoloft (sertraline).
