Re: tapering from 50mg of Zoloft to 25mg too fast?

> As the topic states, I'm considering stepping down from 50 to 25mg of Zoloft. It did its job to a satisfactory degree, but is probably just holding me back cognitively at this point. I was originally on 75mg, and went down to 50mg a couple of weeks ago. So far I've had none of the classic "brain zaps". The past couple days I've had head fuzziness starting around noon and lasting into the evening.
> So does it sound to you guys that stepping down to 25mg would be a wise choice? I'd talk to my psychiatrist, but I know he would just badger me for wanting to cut back. I might try anyway though.

If you are cutting back, I think going from 50 to 25 would be the prudent thing to do, but I would still suggest discussing this with your pdoc first. My own experience with Zoloft and Effexor was that I never suffered any withdrawal symptoms on Zoloft regardless of whether or not I tapered, and I always suffered withdrawal symptoms on Effexor regardless of whether I tapered or not.
