Relasp or withdrawal?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi. I recently came off sertraline 3 and half weeks ago. Iv been through every withdrawal symton listed nearly they all seem to of passed apart from the anxiety . Should i wait to see if it passes or go back on antidepressants? as im not sure how long the withdrawals take to completely go away.

    How s slow did you come off it. I am just starting to come of. Headache and nausea. I am not looking forward to the withdrawal. The anxiety should pass too. Hang in,

      I was on 50mg for 2 months after being on fluoxetine. I came off over a 2 week period because of the side effects. I just want to know if im doing the right thing by waiting it out 🙁

      I'd have thought a much more prolonged and gradual and reducing withdrawl would be better?

      The doctor thought it may be better as the side effects where bad

      You came off too fast I think, you will have side effects like withdrawal, too early to tell if it is the disease. I am reducing by 12mg over two months, and I feel headaches at that slow reduction. Hang in, you may be past the worse.
