Zoloft and emphysema

Can using Zoloft for anxiety make shortness of breath from emphysema worse?
Thanks

My literature search turned-up no reports of COPD related shortness of breath worsening with the administration of Zoloft.

You may want to check with your COPD doctor regarding the other common causes of increased shortness of breath in this context, they being the development of a reduction in blood oxygen level and/or congestive heart failure.

Good luck
