I should have been more precise- There is no data to state that the combination makes things worse as far as memory impairment long term-- if you have memory impairment, it may be due to alcohol ( or it may be due to something else that you haven't told me about- like a head injury, or other drug use).
Zoloft is not been shown to cause brain injury. I was just getting at the combination can cause more sedation and has a combined effect in n that way, but specifically related to memory, Zoloft should not be a problem.
That is why people have told you that if you do have damage it is more likely from alcohol.The botXXXXX XXXXXne is , you likely cannot change the past, just don't drink excess alcohol now and you should not have progression.
It is not unethical to use SSRIs in people who need them, even if they drink alcohol- The concern as I noted would be excess sedation and mental status depression- but there are risks with any medications.
