Is it safe to take bentonite clay while on Zoloft (sertraline) if I take them several hours apart?

In brief: Bentonite clay

Bentonite clay binds many drugs in the intestine and therefore prevents the absorption of the drug.
There will be less problem if they are several hours apart, but there is variability of intestinal movement, so the results are somewhat unpredictable....I.E. How much zoloft (sertraline) would actually be absorbed and how much bound by the clay.
