Withdrawal symptoms coming off zoloft focus

It's hell to cold turkey-it off any antidepressant. It's small consolation, but coming off zoloft is a walk in the park compared with effexor, paxil. If I were your doc I'd want to help you through this misery (and your family's). The rage and flare ups and fits of weeping, etc., can be helped very much by a benzo such as clonazepam. It won't do much for your libido during this messy time, but sex is probably the last thing on your mind. You don't need to be on it forever but it would help get you through this raw wired period. About lexapro, I haven't tried it. If it doesn't work for you, you might consider the tricyclics. After being on almost all the newer antidepressants and none of them working for long, I'm now on nortriptyline and lithium and liking it very much. Good luck and keep us posted. - BCat
