Is Zoloft (generic sertraline) considered a psychotopic medication?.

My daughter is on 100 mgm of sertraline each day and is in a group home. Due to being on this med, they have her on a behavioral plan (extra charge). She is moderate developmental disablities.

25 and up to 50 was as strong a dose I tried. I can only assume she is suffering severe case because at that dose I would not have been able to function- the lower does was to treat depression not psychosis. I got off them because I was only suffering from postpartum depression. This med had me thinking suicidal thoughts, loss of appetite and sleep...so approach with caution. Remember if you decide to change meds that she has to slowly go down a dose at a time. For that it may take two to three weeks. I thinks it's five or seven days 25mg down at a time.

Zoloft is an antidepressant if that helps.
