> Please Help me! I have been on Zoloft for about 7 months now. I decided to take myself off of it.I was on a 100mg a day so I was taking 50 mg and started having these weird schock feelings through out my body.My brain feels like it is vibrating and it travels down through my arms. It's scarey and when it happens my vision sometimes blurs. Does anyone know how long this will last. It is really freaking me out. Also Zoloft has caused me to gain weight. But here lately I am so sick to my stomach that I can't eat or function at all. I am constantly tired but can't sleep. If anyone can offer any advice PLEASE DO!
> Thanks

I've been on Zoloft for almost 3 years.
I began tapering about 12 months ago on the advice of our local doc. I put on so much weight it was becoming a problem. Some doctor's don't know a thing about withdrawals! Mine took me down to 50mg from 100mg and wondered why I kept getting dizzy, and falling over, unable to get up!
I've managed to get myself down to 25mg.... very slowly but I still think it takes about 2 weeks to stablise at a new dose and about a month to 2 months to feel fine enough to go to the next step.
I'm still scared as hell but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.I agree with other postings here, go back a step if you are finding the effects too bad! It's worth every day longer for less side effects. Keep trying, I know it's hard but hang in there.
