Yes! In fact, that's the way it is supposed to be taken (with an SSRI, such as sertraline). I personally take 50 mg Zoloft per day, and up to 60 mg of Buspar.

For many years the Drug Interaction Checker showed no interaction between Zoloft and Buspar, That changed earlier this year and it now explains a β€œMajor” interaction. I told my doctor and she prescribed a different tranquilizer.
