Also, the short-term memory loss is not how I describe my reactions to Zoloft
. For me, the whole idea of the SSRIs is to keep you from focusing too hard on
bothersome things. When I worry or fret over some issue, the Zoloft causes me to sort of forget about it and move forward. Likewise, some people take Zoloft for obsessive-compulsive disorder, which it prevents a person from focusing too intensely. So, that's the short-term memory issue as I see it from the drug.
