Our (foster) son has been on Zoloft (prescribed by a psychiatrist) to help for anxiety. We have seen great improvement, but were still seeing lots of anxiety type issues, even though he's been settled in our house for quite sometime.
The doctor increased the Zoloft from 12.5mg (smallest dose) to 25mg. We have noticed a huge improvement in him having so much less anxiety, however we have also noticed he can no longer process, or understand things he could before the increase. There were "things he knew" before the increase and he no longer knows them. He cannot interpret information correctly, and asks questions we know he knows the answers to.
Anyone know what could be causing this? We have already contacted his psychiatrist, but really want to figure out if this could be causing the lack of knowledge and skills.
