    Unhappy Zoloft Withdrawl - Need Help!


    I have been on Zoloft since 1995. I was on 200mg a day, then went down to 150mg for a week, 100mg for a week, then 50mg for a week, and then off for the the past 48 hours. I have no symptoms of depression as a result of being of the zoloft. I am experiancing stoumach pains, sweating, nasuae, and headaches. It feels like I have the Flu. Are these normal withdrwawl symtoms? How long do they last? Anything to alleviate the symtoms. Your help would me much appeciated.

    Thank you.

    David, I currently take Zoloft but I have gone off it before without any withdrawal. Going from 50mg's to none is a big step. You have to do it very gradually, and it looks like you didn't. Did you just go off it on your own or with your doctor's guidance? You are experiencing withdrawal symptoms and I'm not sure how long they'll last. The last time I went off Zoloft I went from 100mg to 75mg to 50mg to 37 1/2mg to 25mg to 12 1/2mg and then to none. It took about 2 weeks altogether--a very gradual reduction in the medicine. Your symptoms should wear off eventually, and if not, let your doctor know.

    I have to agree...It sounds like you weaned yourself off really fast. If I did that I would be having electrical zaps and twitches all day and night. Be careful and don't let yourself crash. Once you get too low it can get hard to find the energy and initiative to call up the doctor and make an appointment. I made that mistake once when trying life without meds on more than one occasion.
