Re: zoloft withdrawal in elderly

My mother who is now 80 years old started taking zoloft at 50mg/day after my father passed away. She has been taking this for three years. She is great spirited and happy as she always was prior to the zoloft. I think her doctor made a mistake not to take her off zoloft after a few months.

Her symptoms of confusion and sleepiness may be from her age but may also be from the zoloft. I would like to see her off the drug. I have not yet spoken to her doctor but expect she is somewhat unfamiliar with withdrawal symptoms from the drug. Does anyone have any experience with withdrawal from zoloft at an elderly age.

thanks for your help.
