In reply to Zoloft decrease, short of breath? pressure?, posted by rainbowlight on May 19, 2002, at 0:22:24

> I have cut my Zoloft from 37.5 to 12.5 mgs. (per doctors orders). I am feeling short of breath, like I can't get enough air. And my head feels like someone is holding me upside down (pressure feeling). Is this normal during a decrease of this med? Is is my blood pressure rising? Any experiences with this?

Hi Rainbowlight,

I kind of think your suspicion about excessive serotonergic activity of all your meds together (not just the Zoloft), might be causing you some troubles. I noticed the exact reaction you are talking about whenever I pushed my Prozac or Celexa dose upwards. Your body might adjust Ok to the Zoloft and it will go away. You might ask your doctor about getting a blood level on *all* your meds. I really wonder if you are having some abnormally elevated levels of some of your meds. Just an idea.
