> My doctor took me completely off the Zoloft I was taking (100mg. a day) and started me immediately on Lexapro (10mg. a day. It has now been 7 long days since this switch and I can hardly get out of bed in the mornings, I am extremely agitated/angry with my kids and husband over minor things, and I feel like I'm zoning half the time. Your postings make me realize I'm not alone in these various symptoms; I just wonder who else went off zoloft cold turkey and how long did these bad side affects last. My family (and me!) don't want me to stay like this very much longer! Oh, and the reason I switched was to try and reduce the reduced libido side affect of the zoloft. Wellbutrin and Prozac have not worked for me. I would appreciate any feedback/thoughts/suggestions you might have. Thanks! Jan
Hi Jan,
Actually my experience is/was coming off of Zoloft was harder than Effexor. I just got off of Effexor in Jan.and went thru h***. Went onto Zoloft in the transition. was a zombie for three months then came off of it about 6 weeks ago and have a horrible time!! I'm still, yes still, experiencing those electrical zaps. I'm so tired of it. and I've got terrible mood/rage swings. I can empathise.
