Is it safe to give zolosoft to a child having allergy induced cyclic vomiting syndrome ?

My son who is 12 has cyclic vomiting syndrom, we were diagnosed three years ago. His episodes are triggered by allergies , we are getting tested the end of the month. Can zoloft at such a young age help with this syndrom?

Thanks for writing in.
Zoloft which contains sertraline will not help your son. A lot of lifestyle modifications can help your son. This include avoiding identified dietary triggers such as chocolate, cheese, and monosodium glutamate ; meeting a sympathetic gastroenterologist and avoiding psychological stress.
Also, if the triggers in your son are allergies, a lot of anti emetic medications that are used have anti-allergy properties as well.
This will help prevent attacks.
Hope this helps.
