There are all sorts of symptoms that can occur during discontinuation. unfortunately many pdocs do not believe in discontinuation syndrome despite the research on it.
IF you get off of any psych drug, its usually best to do it slowly. If you can get a pill cutter or count beads from capsules thats the way to go.
Usually these effects last a month or two, then the depression may return.
When I went off of lexapro the zaps and nausea lasted a month. The depression came back quickly.
Just make sure there is someone to watch you when you discontinue, just in case you have a bad reaction and try to do something permanent.
Im currently on 50mg zoloft. Works good so far, along with wellbutrin. Its not a baby dose, its what the original trials showed as an 'effective' dose. Still enough to be difficult to quit.
