In brief: Possibly

Zoloft (sertraline) can be used to treat ocd.
50-200 mgs daily is the recommended dosing. Some may require more. Can take up to 12 weeks to see the full effect. Always discuss dosing with the prescribing phsyician and remember cbt for OCD is extremely helpful alone or in combination with medications such as zoloft (sertraline).

In brief: Agree w Dr. Reynolds

50 mg of zoloft may be adequate to treat Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - however, I find that most of patients required higher doses.
