Are there additional sources you can share? All I could find was article about heart issues but not death by Zoloft

When I clicked the link I just saw a video, but when I copied the title of the video and pasted it the search bar, the website showed the video and article. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/865735...eart-problems/

Re: Sertraline (Sold as Zoloft) Causing heart problems for people in the UK

Sounds like it probably only affects those with a history of heart problems ...
IF the dose is high enough. I myself took Sertraline for over 7 years but took
a very low dose and never raised it.

Doctors seem to be of two opinions:
1) don't take anti-depressants for more a few months ... or
2) if it works then take more of it.

One doctor told me I should stop taking it, but gave no reason for that, and no
suggestion of how to treat my anxiety in another way. I didn't return.

My PA once suggested I raise my 50 mg dose, and I flatly refused. It worked
well at that dose so why tinker with it?
