Zoloft withdrawal how long does it last

Common Questions and Answers about Zoloft withdrawal how long does it last


My advice is, if it lasts for awhile, don't gamble with your emotional life and go back on it and taper off as slowly as you need to. But we can't tell you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> it will last in your case because it depends on on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> quickly your brain can adapt back to working naturally and we don't know that in any individual case. You also may be experiencing some neurontin withdrawal as well, so that's an unknown factor.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> were you on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span>? and what for? I took it for 8 weeks along with klonopin, and I think the zoloft gave me the jitters, so I told dr I wanted off. Friday is suppose to be my last day.
and the times I attempted suicide and really hoped I would succeed. I know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> I felt then and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> I viewed the world. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> does let me function as a real person. I have a theory about my situation at least. My mom was anorexic. She barely gained 9 pounds when she had me, I was almost 6 lbs. She had been anorexic since she was 19, so defnitely before even conceiving me.
I would take it all to a pharmacist so you get some info and perhaps ideas about relief before Wed. Ask about the life of the drug in your system so you have some idea of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> it takes to clear. You need real info from pro's not guesses from me. Also take it to your doc. It is so easy to forget some important point but crucial that you don't, since you only see the doc occasionally.
Does anyone know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> it takes for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> to be completely out of your system? I stopped taking it 4 weeks ago and I have not lost a single pound.
So it was in your system pretty good. I am not sure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> it takes for it to come completly go out of your system. Does <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> help with the serotonin production? Because if it does then you are not going to feel better until your body starts producing serotonin again. Why did your doctor put u on zoloft in the begining? If you pump up your vitiman C and take some b1 and b2s it may help you feel better. Even if you don't feel like it...try to eat healthy:-) that makes a Huge difference...
if it is wellbutrin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> do you think it will last? or, if its not wellbutrin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span>, could i be getting side effects from starting with 100mg twice a day of zoloft rather than 50mg for the first few days (i've only taken one dose of zoloft today, so i really don't think its from zoloft)?
The whole zoloft thing is so difficult for me to handle, i had been take 150 mg for 2 years. weaned myself off. Have not taken any for almost two weeks, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> is this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> going to last? i don't feel in control of my own mind and I have so many symptoms. It's difficult to say the least. I do not want to cave in and go back on it. As I will just be in the same situation at another time.
I have had bouts of flu type feelings and I feel very tired and worn out. Basically I feel like **** and I dont have the flu. My question is, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> does it take to get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> out of your system? I know your never to stop taking SSRI meds abruptly but when you follow a good tapering schedule and you still deal with wwithdrawal symptoms that's enough to tick a person off. My doctor wants me to start Lexapro but he wants me to wait until zoloft is completely washed from my system.
I figured I'd better kick this habit before it gets a hold of me anymore. I'm on day two from quitting cold turkey and was wondering <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> it will take to get a full night of sleep. These night sweats and sleepless nights are killing me. Any advice, besides exercise to help sleep at night.
It is the most soothing thing during wd's, period. it really makes a HUGE difference. And after the bath, depending on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> long and hot it was, you will feel pretty damn good for about 30 min. Insomnia: This is one of the worst symptoms of WD. If you have bad wd, you probably won't be able to sleep for more than a half hour at a time. THE WORST THING YOU CAN DO IS TRY AND FORCE YOURSELF TO SLEEP AND GET UPSET THAT YOU CAN'T.
I have several questions...one is about the shaking...does this go away? Also, the Klonopin...<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> before it will help with these tremors? She is taking these meds for depression as well as anxiety disorder. She is feeling better mentally...with the depression but these tremors start about two hours after she takes the zoloft.
From thoughts of suicide to deep sadness to deep depression. I would love to know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> other people feel it has taken them until these effects lessen. I understand that life is always happening, and it is a strong effect on my emotions, I am just feeling so unstable that it seems like much of it is the drug. I am starting to see a therapist next week so that may help, but after such a long struggle I am wondering if I should just go back on.
It's a book about what drugs do to people, and about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> to best deal with it. Wish I'd read it before I quit Paxil, because my psychiatrist didn't know anything about withdrawal, or claims not to. I did try to contact the author, but he never responded either to me or one of the psychiatrists I've seen. Melissa: Got to look out for yourself.
My friend that is in recovery is using subuxone under the supervision of a treatment facility. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> effective is it and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> addicting is it? He is trying to get off loratab that he is been using steadily for 3 years.
This time it was not nearly as bad and I also knew exactly what and why I felt it so it wsn't so bad to deal with. What does any or all of this mean? I don't know to you what it will mean? Hopefully it will just help some of you. Compassion is what I feel for people dealing with this stuff and there are not a lot of people who even understand it. Especially some of the doctors! I hope I can help the way my doctors and friends helped me. Forgive my english/spelling if you will.
In January I was prescribed 50mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> for anxiety. Recently it started making me feel "drugged" and I weaned off with doctors permission. Sunday was my last dose of the zoloft and I am going on day 4 with no zoloft. So far so good. I was wondering if I would have already experienced withdrawals from the meds by day 4? My doctor doesn't seem to think I will suffer major symptoms cause I was on a low dose and not for very long. Any insights will be appreciated!!
I recently began experiencing some really crazy symptoms and this was within the same week that I went off zoloft, kind of weaning myself off. I came on here and discovered someone else who had posted exactly what I was going through. I am going to quote it here word for word because I want input, I want to know how long it took Amy F. to feel better: "What are the withdrawal symptoms of zoloft?
I don't know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> the withdrawals last though. Have you called the doc who was prescribing the paxil and asked her or him about how to taper off it? You could go back on a lower dose of it and slowly taper off till you are off and feel normal. good luck!
This symptom combined with weight loss and chronic diarrhea is starting to make me re-evaluate whether I should be on this med, however, I do enjoy the weight loss. Has anyone else had similar symptoms and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> do they last? Most posts that I've read are from those that have gained weight so I'm wondering if this is a short-lived perk...
Also, does anyone know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> these withdrawl symptoms usually last for? What was the point in taking an anti-depressant when all it's going to do is ruin my life and take me back down to square one? What should I do? I don't want to go see my doctor because it will cost me an arm and a leg to see him and not only that, but it seems he was somewhat reckless in prescribing to me this drug that seems to still be in it's 'testing phase'.
I thought I felt more like myself when I got on it, but now I'm feeling more like myself being off of it, aside from these ridiculous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> symptoms. We'll see <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> it goes. I'd do almost anything not to have anxiety anymore, but I don't want to feel numb and out-of-body like I had been. Can I get an Amen?
I did have good luck with it but am tapering off of it to see <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> I do (I have been on it for a couple years. I was on Lexapro but changed to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span>). My doctor had me reduce the dose, then do it again; and then after taking a half pill for a while I have gone off it completely. As far as side effects I have had the crying spells, anxiety, and skin crawling. I am not sure if the skin crawling is due to this or my allergies. I thought i'd see if you were having the same symptoms.
You should think about Celexa as an alternative, and you can start that instead of restarting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span>, and it should very quickly relieve you of your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withdrawal</span> symptoms. But don't think of medication as the whole answer. Work on your problems with someone. If you can't afford it now, maybe the community health center is the right place. If you have to wait too long, try my online therapy programs ( masteringstress link above) because it will help and it is very inexpensive.
im wondering how much to decrease the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> to stay on that level with it since i have not been on it very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> and not on high doses and all info i can find is about people who have been on it forver stopping.
I want to endure the least amount of withdrawl symptoms possible. What can I expect to undergo when I am no longer on it and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> should I expect it to last? Thank you for your help.
