Nonspecific symptoms: A very large number of general medical conditions, as well as many neurological and psychiatric illnesses, may cause impairment of attention and concentration with memory problems. The best place to start would be a general checkup on your body's systems by a primary care provider, who could send you to other specialists if needed based on the initial work up.

Maybe Ehlers-Danlos?: Ehlers-danlos syndrome is a rare group of genetic disorders involving connective tissue. There are reports that some patients have memory loss, mitral valve prolapse, and raynaud's phenomenon. A primary care doctor, working together with a rheumatologist and a geneticist, should be able to evaluate and figure things out.

Will I hurt myself if I drink alcohol while i'm taking zoloft (sertraline)?

No: Zoloft, or sertraline, is an anti-depressant/anti-anxiety medicine that works on the brain chemical serotonin. In general if you have problems with depression or anxiety, alcohol is likely to worsen your symptoms and make medications like sertraline less effective. So it doesn't hurt you, it just decreases or eliminates the effectiveness of your medicine.

My boyfriend & I are trying to get pregnant. I'm on Zoloft (sertraline) & my doc is having me get off it slowly; 1 pill every other day for a month & then 1 pill every 3rd day until gone. Does this sound reasonable?

Yes, it's great.: It's best to taper off the zoloft (sertraline) and your doctor has an excellent plan.
