Linda, I went off Zoloft COLD TURKEY ..! ughh!! what a big mistake. I had been down to 25mgs so thought it was low enough to just be able to stop...........

My dizziness in the first week was so severe.....I had to go to the Emergency Doctor at the Hospital..... I freaked out.......luckily he was a DRUG Addiction Specialist, and immediately recognised it as WITHDRAWAL.......he prescribed XANAX....but because I was just so relieved to know that I wasn't dying.....I haven't filled in the prescription.

I have had severe bouts of CRYING for what seemed no reason...and still am after SEVEN WEEKS.....because I was withdrawing from a highly effective drug that was in my system for two years.

The dizziness this week has pretty much gone's been SEVEN WEEKS......... and I have been lead to believe it can in some cases takes weeks and weeks to finally get it out of your system. Everyone's different so it's hard to say exactly how long it takes......could be six months ....who really knows...!

So hang in there...........oh by the appetite is now that of a 'normal' person... I have started losing weight there is a good side to it all !!.....
