Hi, Matthew! Unfortunately, it can only turn out badly as the two drugs interact and exaggerate the side effects of each other. Also, since alcohol is a depressant, self-medicating with it defeats the whole purpose of being treated with Zoloft.
I know whereof I speak because I spent many years drinking heavily with my meds and it was only after I put down the bottle that I started to improve.
This is a tricky situation and you may need the help of her doctor or a therapist to help get her through it.
Best wishes, WCV
