Stop Drinking : Both alcohol and zoloft (sertraline) can be stomach irritants and cause ulcer or gastritis.Two drinks knocks out zoloft (sertraline) for up to 72 hrs. In the meanwhile you are also on Ativan and Percocet and should not mix alc. With them. Alc. Can lower platelets and increase bleeding. You need to see family doc asap. Blood in stool is probably hemorrhoids or a fissure. You should be in psychotherapy ; substance abuse tx, .
