Sertraline is the strongest antidepressant among the five drugs, and its strength can even be compared with Ritalin.

Sertraline is especially suitable for people who lack happiness. The inhibition of exercise and alertness is relatively small. The treatment of female depression is better than that of males, and it has less effect on sexual function. Moreover, sertraline is a fast-acting antidepressant.

Clinically, sertraline is primarily used to treat symptoms associated with depression, including depression with or without Mania. After achieving satisfactory results, it is recommended that the patient continue to take it, which can effectively prevent the recurrence of depression.

However, at the same time, some studies suggest that sertraline can induce or aggravate insomnia, which may be related to the activation of serotonin-2 receptor and the disruption of sleep.

If the patient has insomnia during the use of sertraline, they can take a sedative, or mirtazapine or trazodone, under the guidance of a doctor. Mirtazapine and trazodone have antidepressants with the effect of helping sleep. 5 HTP powder may has the similar effect. 5 HTP will be converted into melatonin. It is well know that melatonin is close related to sleep quality.
