Having some weird issues...

Hey all need some man to man advice:

I'm not to sure what is going on with me as of late but something is up. I'm a 25 year old white male and normally healthy as most are concerned but I've developed some issues.

First off I'm on Zoloft and Welburtrin for depression. Zoloft has been about 6 months now and Welburtin with in the last 2 months. I was experiencing the inability to achieve an orgasm and my doctor thought the Zoloft is the root cause since all was fine and well before so he tacked on the WB to "counteract" the sexual side effects. That's the only medical history I have.

Now within the last two weeks I've been fumbling over my words, mispronouncing things and generally missing letters in type I thought I key pressed. I'm concerned because I've never been a scholar of the English language and have general mess ups like everyone does but this is on a every few hour basis at this point.

I know my doctor is going to be the primary person to ask these questions to but I just wanted some advice and to see if anyone has heard of Zoloft and speech issues or something like that. I have found nothing on the NET and I'm wondering now if this is a growing issue.

I do not use drugs but I do drink daily, and of course I'm assuming drinking could be killing brain cells and maybe that's the cause but I don't know for sure.

Please help. Thanks guys.

What should I avoid while taking Zoloft?Avoid drinking alcohol, which can increase some of the side effects of Zoloft.
Do not take the liquid form of Zoloft if you are taking disulfiram (Antabuse). Liquid Zoloft may contain alcohol and you could have a severe reaction to the disulfiram.
Zoloft can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert.
Tell your doctor if you regularly use other medicines that make you sleepy (such as cold or allergy medicine, narcotic pain medicine, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and medicine for seizures or anxiety). They can add to sleepiness caused by Zoloft.
