I took Zoloft for approximately 6 months for generalized anxiety. I actually began with Effexor, but experienced too many side effects. Overall, I felt better on Zoloft, but decided to wean off about a month ago thinking it was causing me a "sour stomach" feeling between meals. Now off for over a month, I still have the stomach problem. I also recently began experiencing "head rushes"/lightheadedness and the pins and needles sensation throughout my body, which many have called "zaps."
I am convinced, after reading these posts and related materials on the web, that these symptoms are a result of taking, and withdrawing, from Zoloft.
