I guess I meant serotonin uptake? Whatever one gets when they go off cold turkey - which is what I did one time several years ago. OK, I have only been on 25 mg. a little more than 3 weeks, but I have so many health issues right now, including severe stomach problems, that I don't feel I need the extra chemical right now. When one weans, is it a matter of breaking the tablet smaller and smaller, or is it a matter of increasing days between doses? Thanks

> What do you mean? This is what happens when you take ZOLOFT, when you stop Zoloft there is no more serotonin reuptake.

> Zoloft blocks serotonin reuptake, allowing more serotonin to remain in the synapse.
> But I can offer suggestions on how to stop Zoloft. It had a very very nast w/drawal for me, but that's just me.

> 1. Boost nutrition- eat fruit and vegies (and a lot of bannanas
> 2. Try take a natural alternative- St Johns Wart or L- tryptophan
> But reduce your dose slowly
