Yes Zoloft has permanently Lowered my IQ by 50 it seems......Caused Permanent Tremors Memory loss and destroyed my sex drive........iv weaned off the drug and all these continue. What iv noticed with most SSRI's is they seem to turn you into a Zombie and destroy any intelligence and creativity you have. Every SSRI iv tried has done this: Zoloft, Paxil, Lexapro, Prozac.....Just my experience.

I experienced memory loss with Zoloft. Also made me quieter over all, and kind of emotionless

I doubt your intelligence reduction is permanent. Give it some time. It may take a few months but I'd have a hard time believing any SSRI could actually lower one's IQ on a permanent basis. The sexual issues are common. I've heard a few anecdotal reports of tremors but don't know enough about it to comment. Certainly if these tremors are permanent, that's unfortunate. I have tremors with Wellbutrin, but I'm hoping they disappear when I stop the drug. It's fairly common with buproprion.
