Quitting Zoloft- help!

Hi there,

I was prescribed Zoloft 50 mg by my dr to see if it would help the anxiety I'd been having. I started on 25 mg on feb 16, and then moved up to 50 mg on feb 23. After increasing to 50mg, I started getting sick to my stomach. I wasn't sure if I wanted to take meds to begin with. So, I took my last Zoloft on Monday feb 27th. My question is, since I was only on for a week and a half, will I still experience withdrawl? It's been about 36 hours since my last one, and just worried that I may get some symptoms. I have not contacted my dr about this because I don't feel like telling him at this time that I stopped taking it. any help would be appreciated!

Hello carriemc78.

I think it's unlikely you'll experience withdraw symptoms after only talking Zoloft for a week and a half. I highly recommend you talk to your doctor about this though. In order to get the most effective treatment from your doctor I think it's crucial to keep him updated with how your meds are working or not working for you. I think it's common that people stop taking meds because of the side-effects so I think he won't be surprised or shocked by your situation. He may be able to prescribe something else for you that doesn't cause such troublesome side-effects as the Zoloft does.

Thanks a lot for the reply. I appreciate it! I do plan on speaking with him about it, but just have not at this time. He can be a real hard head sometimes, so I'm a bit nervous, but I know I need to soon. Thanks again!
