Re: Zoloft withdrawal symptoms
I had similar withdrawl symptoms when I tapered off Zoloft. Be sure to taper off slowly, too. I went from 1 tablet to 3/4 for a few days, then to 1/2 for a few days, and even 1/4 before stopping all together. Even then I would experience feeling weepy and worthless. I'm glad I stopped though. It made me gain 20 pounds after 4 months. I was very concerned about that weight gain, so the doc suggested Wellbutrin, saying it usually caused decreased appetite and weight loss. I tried that for 2 months, but it really made my ears ring badly, and it interfered with what little sleep I get, so now his PA gave me Remeron to try. I agree it often seems they don't know what they're doing, and it's getting harder and harder to know where to go or who to trust!
