Is there anyone out there who can tell me if there is any withdrawl from Zoloft and Buspar. I read somewhere that you could quit taking them for a weekend so the sexual side effects are not as bad. Is this true? Can you just up and quit them without withdrawls? I would be very thankful if someone could give me there advise on this.
I do know that you can take a couple of days off of them and sexual side effects are lessend but as far as quitting cold turkey for good I doubt that its advisable.
As far as I know Zoloft has a short half life that is similar to paxil so it comes out of your body too quickly. I think prozac is ok to go off of cold turkey because it stays in the body for approx a month after you stop taking it.
Olivia, I wasn't planning on quitting cold turkey, Just for a couple days to lesson the side effects. Thanks for the info, I greatly appreciate it. I'm still not sure about the Buspar but maybe someone will give me an answer to that one too.
Buspar is not supposed to effect your sex life except in rare instances. I personally did not think it hurt me. As far as going off for a couple of days, you can try it but I am not sure you will notice any difference in such a short time. When I was taking some drugs, I also took Viagra, I would cut the 100mg pill into quarters and take one quarter. That was enough for me to do good for 2 or 3 hours. With the Remeron I don't have to take it every time, it depends on how stressed or tired I am. You might talk to your doc. They are giving away free samples at some doc offices. You can buy them on the web too. (but don't if you can get your doc to prescribe them, buy locally). Most insurance companys will cover it (if you have insurance, which I don't). They are pretty expensive- $ 10.00 a 100mg pill. Anyway good luck with your experiment. <p>[This message has been edited by TrickyDick (edited 12-22-2000).]
