Advice for Zoloft taper

Posted , 3 users are following.


I have been on Zoloft for a short time, 4 weeks at 25mg. I would like to taper off. I see a ton of stories of people on them for years taper with bad experience. How would a person on it for a short period of time possibly get off 25mg zoloft.

    I recently tapered off after 6 weeks. I felt depressed and exhausted all the time. I've been off two weeks now and am experiencing dizziness all the time, I don't know if this can be withdrawal after such a short time, I was told I hadn't been on it long enough to get withdrawals.

      OH no. Sorry to hear that. I'm hoping I don't have bad withdrawals m. Did you do a slow taper? What dosage were you on?
