Can antipsychotic meds cause diastolic heart dysfunction/failure?  I am currently on 15mg saphris (asenapine) and 150mg seroquel XR plus various other drugs

Increase zoloft (sertraline): Yes, serotonin syndrome with high blood pressure and seizures can be one risk. It is not a good idea to take two SSRI-type medications with similar mechanisms of action.
