Wirthdrawing from Zoloft after nine years

Posted by Shylilly on March 22, 2005, at 22:04:07

In conjunction with consistent psychotherapy, I have been on 200mg of zoloft for nine years. Several times I tried to cut down but it didn't workout. But I am doing much better now, and under my Doctor's supervision, I cut down to 100mg and stayed there for 30 days... then to 50 mg for three weeks... then to 50 mgs every other day for a week... then to zero megs for five days now.

Psychologically I'm doing well. But I am wondering if some of the things I've been noticing are, infact, side effects.
Predomiatly, I feel dizzy a lot. Not so badly that I can't walk or function, just enough to make me feel.. well...dizzy.

Also, my eye sight seems to be blurry and there is I have a ringing in my ears that sounds like an alarm clock going off.

My appetite has dropped but I am energetic and feel engaged and present and continue to be comitted to getting off Zoloft.

So, what do you think? Are these normal-ish withdrawal symptoms?
