Common Questions and Answers about Zoloft withdrawal success stories

zoloft

That is typical withdrawal phenomena with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span>, along with a lot of other similar AD meds (ie Celexa, Lexapro, etc). While the symptoms are certainly bothersome, they won't last forever...you just have to give it some time. As far as HOW to address your anxiety...there are many options. One of the most important things is therapy. Traditional "talk" therapy is great, and also a lot of anxiety sufferers have great success with CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy)...
Two months AFTER being off zoloft I continued to have withdrawal symptoms My last <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> dose, and I tapered down slowly, was 8-31-06. I then had to taper down and go off Xanax (last Xanax dose was yesterday, 12-14-06). Continuing headaches, twitches, flu-like symptoms. I have read that this is all withdrawal symptoms. When I got aff Paxil there were no withdrawal symptoms once I was off. Now, with zoloft and Xanax, I still am dealing with withdrawal symptoms.

I just know when people start getting very discouraged or scared, based on reading the horror <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stories</span>, it helps to explain that there are also a lot of success <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stories</span>, and as with any new med, it's just kind of a crap shoot as to how that person will do on the med. I don't like to see ANYONE putting too much stock in either kind of story, and that's why I always encourage people to allow themselves to have their own experience.

This is so hard and no one knows about my addiction so I don't have anyone to turn to while I withdrawal. I tried to make an appointment with a psychologist so I could talk to someone about it and get something to make it a little easier but their busy and haven't called me back. I don't know if my doctor will understand or be able to help me in any way. I am so ready to have my life back and need help getting over this.
I've tried to get off Paxil recently and had the WORST problems. After researching and talking to people who have gotten off (or tried to get off) of the drug I am horrified that Paxil is still being prescribed. I am also AMAZED that a DOCTOR would actually say that this isn't dangerous, or that it isn't the PAXIL!?!? Are you kidding? How much were you paid to say that? Paxil DID help with my panic attacks. Did not cure or stop them, but helped.
From your description, you're actually not having the worst kind of withdrawal -- they call what you have the Paxil flu because Paxil is known to be the most difficult of these drugs to stop taking, but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> has pretty high withdrawal numbers as well. If this is all you get, consider it a blessing, and it should pass, but how long is different for everyone.
My question, is it better to reduce the dosage quickly (say over 6 days) and endure the sterss of all the withdrawal symptoms and be back to normal sooner or to do a slow letdown and minimize the withdrawal symptoms? Also any estimates of how long the slow method could take?
why is withdrawal from paxil so intense.i'm on 20mg. a day, i,ve tried cutting back to 10mg was on that for a month, then i tried to take 10mg every other day,the second day istarted having withdrawals,tremers,heart racing,weak,ihave never felt so bad in my life.so i always goback to taking the 20mg aday.
After I finished the project in mid-may, I decided that I needed to stop using a drug to get through the day, so I tried to just stop taking it. WOW! Serious withdrawal symptoms including joint and muscle pain, stomch issues, fatigue, depression and a strange hollowness in my nerves ensued. I didn't feel I could just stop functioning for a week or two or whatever it would take, so I used some hydrocodone that I had to help me get my tramadol use down to 100mg per day over the course of a week.
I have to cut down and recently cut down to 10 a day and have experienced physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms. I have some clonidine and don't know how much to take for withdrawal. What is the recommended dosage. My goal is to eventually cut down to 4 a day, but have been very uncomfortable at 10. I also take effexor and trazadone for depression, but I am so depressed right now. Hydrocodone, believe it or not has helped my depression and has given me something to look forward to.
I am convinced that these are the symptoms of codeine/hydrocodone withdrawal. WHAT do I do about this? I can't STAND it!!! I have three children to take care of (two of them are babies). I can't take care of myself now because I am "sick" so to speak. I have been completely honest with my husband about this. He agrees that this is probably withdrawal, I need to do "cold turkey" (what choice do I have anyway?) and tough it out for the next week or so.
org/wiki/Serotonin_syndrome and there are many other success <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stories</span> on the net... I have also heard that 5-HTP is actually prescribed in Europe by doctors, but have not verified this (do a web search of "5-HTP is prescribed in Europe"). 5-HTP could also help you lose those extra pounds the Paxil put on. Remember to be careful when using 5-HTP with SSRIs! And if you know anyone considering anti-depressants, refer them to 5-HTP first.
I've noticed around 8pm and after every night I would start to feel like my old self. Even when first getting up in the morning. I've been taking my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> first thing in the morning. By an hour or two after taking it I would get anxious then followed by the weird flat feelings. This would generally not fade until about 8 at night. Then I would slowly feel myself again. Maybe I'll go back on it but I feel like I need to stop and see if that's the root of my numbness.
As a nurse, I've seen people with horrid outcomes from NATURAL remedies as well...those horror <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stories</span> are not unique to prescription meds. Do I SHARE those <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stories</span> with people interested in herbal/natural remedies? Usually not, and if I DID, it would be in factual, respectful manner as to not scare the daylights out of those who have chosen THAT route for anxiety help...because ultimately there is no WRONG approach...only individual ones that are unique from person to person.
nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, restlessness, and leg movements, or jerking.
You have gotten so much really excellent advice and I'm glad to read that you're going to give the zoloft a try. If you want yet another <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> success story, add mine to the list! I've been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> for almost 2 years now. I also began at 25mg and now take 150mg. I was nervous about taking it, too, which many of us are because we hear all the bad stories, seldom the good ones. The worst side effect I had from the zoloft was a very dry mouth for about 2 weeks. That was it!
My psychiatrist didn't or refused to recognize this as Paxil withdrawal, but eventually I was able to go on the Net and find out what it was, but I can't find anyone who can tell me what to do about such a persistent problem. I'm now on Lexapro, but it hasn't helped much. I know now that if my psychiatrist had put me right back on Paxil and tapered more slowly I might have done much better, but he didn't offer that alternative or ever explain Paxil withdrawal to me, so here I am.
Yes I experienced withdrawal symptoms when I was changed from Seroquel to Risperdal and had to titrate off on at the rate my psychiatrist told me to. That is not uncommon. Its chemically separate phenomenon from addiction and if a person follows their psychiatrist's titration schedule in time these concerns will pass.
Oh - I suppose these are my intentions - and I guess I am looking for someone to agree and make be feel better about it! Nurofen is a lot less powerful than vicoden and I hoped that withdrawal might be easier...............
Did you ask the doc about trying a different SSRI and tapering off of the Remeron? My husband stopped <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> for several years and is back on and having success with it again. I don't know about it permanently altering your brain chemistry,but it must alter it for a time and there's sure to be after effects that last after discontiueing the drug. I would look at maybe just taking Celexa/Lexapro or another SSRI, Prozac maybe? And maybe tapering off the Remeron?
I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
and I begin obsessively reading about the thousands of Paxil withdrawal horror <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stories</span> that are out here on the web. Websites like paxilprogress.org and quitpaxil.org are full of people that have tried to quit or are in the process of weaning off of this drug, and they are all going through absolute hell. It really scares me. It's an odd feeling when you realize that you are afraid of the very thing that has helped you for so many years. I guess my question to you is this.
Thanks, I have heard the horror <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stories</span> but believe I can pull this off. I am hesitant to just arbitrarily start taking some amount and get started all over again. Are you a Physician by any chance? Do you know of any kind of taper off chart or something like it? Feeling somewhat better, taste lingers and kinda jumpy, but drinking lots of water and taking vitamins. Been sleeping okay, just feel bouncy and very aware of sights & sounds.

Hi Everyone, Welcome to Part 9.
com/Q/How_bad_is_Tramadol_withdrawal Question - How bad is Tramadol WIthdrawal? Answer - Ultram (Tramadol) Withdrawal Tramadol is highly addictive. Normally your doctor would reduce intake slowly. Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here.
John's Wort and relaxants such as passionflower while they overcome the withdrawal. And if you go on Paxil or Effexor websites, they should have a section of success <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stories</span>, so you can see people who did get better. I believe Paxil Progress does. And again, some have had success switching to Prozac for a time until the withdrawal is done, and it's an easier drug to wean off of.
I have watched and assisted aprox 25 people go through tramadol withdrawal. Though we did use another medication to assist them, withdrawal from anything physically addictive is pretty ugly regardless of how you go about it. Please allow me to offer some thoughts that occured to me while reading your posts. FIRST: Theres a lot of conflicting information about seizures on the list. I've never seen anYone have a seizure in tramadol WITHDRAWAL.
