The closest connection i can make is that zoloft effects neurotransmission of serotonin, which can be involved in affecting mood. That's pretty much where the connection ends. Cocaine significantly impacts Dopamine neurotransmission & is highly addictive, both having stimulant & anesthetic properties. ...Read more

So if you do have a fever you need to see a doctor to determine the proper antibiotic and dose. Hope you feel better. ...Read more
