> hey, i ve been on zoloft 100mg for 8 yrs. early september went to 75, as the weeks went on have gotten to 25. this week i started 0. side effects are pretty bad, i get dizzy with a wierd feeling in my teeth,,anyone get that! drugs are so screwed up, anyway i took 25 today after being off it for 4 days, and the side effects are a bit better, just wondering how long i should expect the side effects for. everytime i went down a dose, i got side effects for 4 or 5 days with each day getting better...this time symptoms are getting worse as each day goes by so i guess thats why i took 25 today. anyways, jsut curious about the teeth thing. ive heard of the electric shock thingy and the zaps, is that what you all mean by it? anyways first post, hopefully me and all of you wont have to be here to post too many thoughts, later all. ernest

Hi Ernest, sorry to hear of your agony, and that is what it is! I did not get the teeth thing although that sounds similar to the teeth thing I used to get from taking LSD. That was horrible too, I am much too neurotic to have ever fooled with that! Anyway, as I said in an earlier post, I switched to a low dose of prozac to avoid the detox from zoloft but I know the the detox from paxil lasted a couple of weeks. And if I took any paxil to ease the hell of it, I had to start all over. sorry to tell you that. If you do take a low dose of prozac to get off the zoloft, you can probably then go off the prozac with no withdrawal. That is my experience anyway.
Good luck and hang in there, this too shall pass eventually.

Donna
