Health is an important aspect of a person's life because it can ensure that they can live a longer and more efficient life. Many people focus on their physical health but disregard their mental health, which is equally important. When a person's mental health goes array, there are different types of medications that can be taken to help.

Two of those medications are Zoloft and Celexa. Zoloft is a medication that can be used for various types of mental health conditions, such as anxiety, OCD, and depression. Celexa can also be used to treat depression and anxiety but is not used to treat other conditions. People prefer Zoloft because it does not have as many side effects due to Zoloft having a shorter half-life. Zoloft can treat a wider variety of psychological illnesses than Celexa.

Zoloft is a brand name, but people are more familiar with this if you would use its generic name, which is sertraline. This is an effective drug that is used to treat depression. Aside from depression, this can also be used in order to treat OCD. (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) There are also a lot of other conditions wherein Zoloft can be prescribed to patients.

This is different from Celexa, which can only be used to treat depression and anxiety. Between the two, Celexa is sometimes preferred because it does not have as many side effects as compared to Zoloft. People are required to have prescriptions before taking these drugs.
