Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
There is difference between deprevix & zoloft.
Zoloft is sertraline & deprevix is venlafaxine.
Zoloft is SSRI & deprevix is SNRI.

So the mode of action is a bit different.

However, both are used to treat depression, anxiety etc.

I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.

Is zolft considered safer?
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 22 days ago.

Zoloft is usually well tolerated.

Individual response to a medicine differs widely.
Some may have side effects with zoloft, some can have it with venlafaxine.
If you feel side effects with one, doctor can change it.
