HelloCustomerand welcome to JustAnswer.

Zoloft (Sertraline hydrochloride) and Risperdal (Risperidone) has no drug interaction, at all, as such.
The latter is known to have serious interactions with drugs like Sibutramine, halofantrine and cisapride but nothing with Zoloft and doesn't increase/slow its metabolism. I have confirmed this with latest drug interaction repository available with the help of FDA and AHFS Drug Information database.
I think you have been mis-informed about this .

I hope this helped.
