While doses for sertraline typically range from 50-200mg daily to treat psychiatric disorders, doses for premature ejaculation are lower, from 25-50mg daily.
Sertraline can have some serious side effects. These include suicidal thoughts or actions, manic episodes, seizures, eye pain, changes in your vision, and bleeding.
In addition, sertraline can cause serotonin syndrome, the symptoms include changes in mental status, muscle twitching or rigidity, racing heartbeat, nausea, vomiting, and sweating. Sertraline has also been shown to reduce blood sodium levels, causing headaches, weakness, and confusion in some people. If you experience any of these side effects, seek immediate medical attention. Do not stop taking sertraline without first talking to your doctor.
Sertraline has a “boxed warning.” In the US, The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) mandates that a boxed warning is used when an approved medication carries a significant risk of serious or even life-threatening adverse effects.
It’s called a boxed warning because this text appears in a box on the packaging. The boxed warning for sertraline states: “There is a causal relationship between the use of antidepressants, such as sertraline, and the risk of suicidal ideation and behavior in children, adolescents, and young adults (ages 18 to 24 years).”
