After being on Lexapro 6 weeks and feeling sleepy ALL the time, doc put me on Zoloft (mostly trying to deal with PMS anxiety, some mild dep.) After three months of Zoloft and headaches every other day, I took myself off cold turkey. Probably not too smart, but I knew doc would have me on a longterm weaning, and I just decided I wanted to be drug free. Its been 9 days off and the only side effects is the "pins and needles" in the head feeling, usually just when quickly turning my head, getting up or sitting down, etc.. but nothing where I feel it is going to cause me to fall or faint, etc.. My stomach has been fine. Libido returned almost immediately, but was not the reason for wanting to go off. I think I can deal with the head thing as long as it doesn't worsen or any other side effects appear. Good luck to all. I am not sure my reasons for getting on the meds were strong enough to begin with. I really feel like if you are borderline..wanting to deal with PMS or general emotional feelings, try other things first, whether more exercise, better diet, talk therapy... its worth it.
