Hi there, I stopped 150mg of Zoloft on 2/5 and went on 10mg of Lexapro.

Well, within a few days, I felt these electric shocks, teeth would chatter (chills) and anxiety.

Please share your withdrawals symptoms and length in that I thought they were gone but today I had a minor electric shock, stomach cramps and chills.

I am starting to feel better with Lexapro, but all of these side effects\withdrawal are just discouraging...I see my doctor on Tuesday.

Thank you,
A
Did your dr. slowly wean you off of the zoloft before changing to Lexapro?
hi,i was on effexor xr 75 mg for 8 mos and my psychiatrist switched me to 50 mg zoloft started on the 25 mg first for 7 days and taking effexor also then after 1 month i was too stop the effexor and i did im not having any side effects and if i stop the zoloft which i only been on for 2 mos i just get a little dizzy and sometimes i get depressed but my psychiatrist is going to help ween me off since he believes all my troubles here are due to my thyriods which were high 8.45 then 2 weeks after starting my thyriod meds 25 mg it went down to 6 something he said most likely all these symtons will prob go away once my levels are regulated.now when i tried to stop effexor cold turkey i couldnt do it i had to go back on but see the effexor nor the zoloft seem to be working cause i still get depressed and have panic attacks but its prob because my thyriods are out of whack.
