Zosert general information

What is Zosert used for?

Zosert tablets 50mg are used to treat depression and symptoms of depressive illness, including anxiety, loss of interest in usual activities, disturbed sleep, change in appetite, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, difficulty thinking or concentrating, and recurrent thoughts of suicide. Zosert 50 is also used to treat other mood disorders that affect daily activities and relationships with others including: obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) in adults and children, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social phobia (social anxiety disorder), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a severe form of premenstrual syndrome.

How does Zosert work?

Zosert tablets 50mg contain Sertraline which is an antidepressant belonging to the class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI). Zosert acts in the brain and works by blocking the reuptake of serotonin, a neurotransmitter or brain chemical that allows nerve cells to communicate, from the synapse, which is the gap between nerve cells across which chemical messages are sent from one nerve cell to another. If the re-uptake of serotonin by the first nerve cell (pre-synaptic) is blocked, this means that there is more serotonin remaining for the receiving nerve cell (post-synaptic), which allows nerve cells to communicate with each other for longer. One of the major causes of depression and other mood disorders is thought to be a lack of serotonin, which controls many body activities, including regulating mood. The action of Zosert 50 helps relieve symptoms of depression and other mood disorders by increasing the amount of serotonin in the brain, which in turn increases stimulation of nerve pathways that control mood.

What does Zosert contain?

Zosert tablets 50mg contain the active ingredient sertraline hydrochloride, used to treat depression and other mood disorders.

Treating depression with Zosert

Zosert tablets 50mg contain Sertraline which is an antidepressant belonging to the class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI), used to treat symptoms of depression, including anxiety, loss of interest in usual activities, disturbed sleep, change in appetite, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, difficulty thinking or concentrating and recurrent thoughts of suicide. One of the major causes of depression is thought to be a lack of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter (brain chemical that allows nerve cells to communicate) that controls mood. Zosert works by blocking the reuptake of serotonin from the synapse, or gap between nerve cells across which chemical messages are sent to allow nerve cell to communicate with each other. By preventing the reuptake of serotonin by the first nerve cell (pre-synaptic) there is more serotonin remaining for the receiving nerve cell (post-synaptic), so that nerve cells can communicate with each other for longer, which increases stimulation of nerve pathways that control mood changes, relieving symptoms of depression.

Zosert for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Zosert tablets 50mg contain sertraline which is an antidepressant belonging to the class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI). Zosert 50 is used to treat symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), including intrusive unwanted repetitive thoughts and an irresistible urge to keep repeating certain actions, such as hand-washing or counting, to try and prevent some imagined dreaded event. One of the major causes of OCD is thought to be low levels of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter (brain chemical that allows nerve cells to communicate) and if there is a lack of serotonin, the brain cells involved in nerve pathways that control mood changes generate feelings of anxiety and panic instead of well-being, which is associated with high levels of serotonin. Zosert 50 works by blocking the reuptake of serotonin from the synapse, or gap between nerve cells across which chemical messages are sent to allow nerve cell to communicate with each other. By preventing the reuptake of serotonin by the first nerve cell (pre-synaptic) there is more serotonin remaining for the receiving nerve cell (post-synaptic), so that nerve cells can communicate with each other for longer, which increases stimulation of nerve pathways that control mood changes, relieving symptoms of OCD.
