Zoloft Free Samples

From Pharmacy Drug Guide

Jump to: navigation, search

Zoloft® (sertraline) is a prescription antidepressant used to treat clinical depression and anxiety disorders, including obsessive compulsive disorder. It may also be used to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder, which is characterized by moodiness, irritability, bloat, and tenderness of the breasts.[1]

Free Zoloft® samples can help those considering the drug decide if it is right for them. Physicians may need to prescribe alternative SSRI drugs to find one with minimal side effects and maximum benefits. There is high potential for adverse reactions from antidepressants, and using free samples can help prevent costly prescriptions from going unused. Interested patients can consult with their doctor about Zoloft®.

Zoloft® Background

Zoloft® is the original brand name for sertraline, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). Used to treat depression, panic disorders, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, and post traumatic stress disorder, Zoloft® has been available as a prescription medication since its approval by the FDA in 1991.[2]


Studies have shown that most side effects from Zoloft® have not caused patients to discontinue use. However, new patients beginning treatment with Zoloft® may experience certain side effects such as:[3]

  • Dry mouth
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Sleepiness or insomnia
  • Sexual side effects

The NIH recommends that children and young adults under the age of 24 be monitored for signs of harmful thoughts or suicide. A small number of young individuals on drugs like Zoloft® have been shown to be at higher risk for self harm.[1]

How to Get Zoloft® Samples

Typically, the only place to obtain free samples of Zoloft® is through patients' doctors or health care providers. Pfizer, Inc. offers free samples of new and existing drugs to physicians and health professionals. If a patient's doctor does not already have Zoloft® samples, he or she may be able to request them directly from their pharmaceutical representative at Pfizer.[4]

Other ways to save on Zoloft® prescriptions are through Zoloft® coupons or Zoloft® patient assistance programs. There are four patient assistance programs that Pfizer offers for Zoloft® and other medications: Connection to Care, MAINTAIN, Pfizer Friends, Sharing the Care, and Pfizer Hospital Partnership Program. Each program has income and/or insurance requirements, and patients must live in the United States to qualify.
