Serotonin Discontinuation Syndrome

Hi. I switched from Prozac to Zoloft about 8 weeks ago because I couldn't sleep. My dr. said Zoloft would be exactly the same only let me sleep at night. I was reluctant but I changed meds. Man was he wrong. I was having only bad side effects and no good ones and still not sleeping. So I started back on Prozac and have been weening off Zoloft for 2 weeks now. I'm having serious serotonin discontinuation syndrome. A few days ago I suffered a mini-stroke because my brain chemicals are so off. I can't work because I keep blacking out and having insane head jerking along with numerous other side effects. Has anybody else been through all this? I need to know this will stop soon I feel so helpless.
