My health insurance was terminated, and I couldn't get samples on time, so I went off cold turkey. I had been taking 200 mg daily for about 2 years. Geez... I got the light saber kind of feeling in my head, aches and pains all over, attacks of weepiness, nausea, diarrhea, etc. Felt like I had a bad case of the flu. The vomiting and diarhhea put me in the hospital with dehydration (not good when you don't have insurance!). Talking to my doctor and therapist didn't do much good.. neither one of them seemed to know there were withdrawal symptoms. I only found out about them when a friend of mine gave me a booklet she got from a mental health professional seminar. Zoloft helped me through a bad time in my life, but d**** if I'm ever going to take them or any other antidepressant again! Doctors need to be totally honest and fully informed as to side effects before and after quitting. If I had known beforehand, I probably would have taken them anyway, but done a better job of going off them. Right now, I would have a hard time accepting any new meds. My doctor knew very little about Zoloft, how do I know he knows anything about any other kind?
