Re: withdrawal symptoms coming off zoloft

In reply to withdrawal symptoms coming off zoloft, posted by Shelly on May 4, 1999, at 17:37:51

I went off Zoloft (150 mg, wt. 92 1bs.) without weaning myself off it due to lack of funds for my prescription co-pay. I experienced severe headaches, and excrutiating pain. I also experienced flu-like symptoms. The headaches made going to work intolerable, light intolerable, and noises and sounds intolerable. I would advise anyone thinking of going off Zoloft to wean themselves off it slowly and do so only with their Dr.'s prior permission. My family doctor was unaware of the side effects of Zoloft and gave me a nerve pill instead, he said my headaches were due to stress, and I thought I had the flu.
I wish I would have been warned about the severe headaches ahead of time (withdrawal) and did not realize it myself until I started looking up withdrawal effects from Zoloft. Seems their were others like me out there, and I thought I was going crazy, so did my family doctor, I guess. That headache pain was real. It made me scared to try another ad. But I didn't like being depressed and went to Celexa (only made me feel worse depressed), now my psych doc has me on Remeron. Good Luck to you!
