> I have just gradually taken myself off of zoloft. I know I should have done this through my doctor, but well that's another story I won't get into.
> My question for anyone who can help is has anyone had side effects from withdrawal from this drug? I am experiencing dizziness, chills and I am extremely aggravated most of the time. Any

info. would be helpful....

I have recently stopped taking zoloft and i came
online to see if anyone else has experienced
dizziness or nausea as a result of withdrawal.My symptoms are mild but it's reassuring to know that
they are common. However, I'm really sorry to see a lot of people suffering so much in attempts to
be free of zoloft. I 'weaned' myself of zoloft over a six month period(at least). My original dose was 50mg. I began by alternating50mg one
day/37.5mg the next and so on for a while.Then
I did 50mgone day/25mg the next and so on.
Eventually, i was on 12.5mg a day...then every
other day..thenevery few days 'til I stopped
completely. I had great health care professionals
who supported my desire to try to get off zoloft
and to do it SLOWLY. It's a big change in body
chemistry so it's best done gradually and kindly
to yourself especially if you've used it for a while. Also, think about other ways of keeping your serotonin levels up ( exercise,foods,
breathing techniques etc ) as you come off zoloft.
I hope this might be helpful to someone..........
Best Wishes...
