In brief: Yes

You should not combine Zoloft with alcohol and you should avoid taking NSAIDs such as ibuprofen and naproxen due to increased risk of bleeding.
Zoloft also should not be taken with certain other antidepressants such as MAOI's and TCA's. But Zoloft is ok with Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim).
