Hi everyone,
I was on Zoloft for about 3 months, when I developed intolerable diarrhea. I slowly weaned off it and have been off it for a week. But during this week, I developed a strange a feeling like all my nerves would surge at once, just for a second. Is this common? Is this the electrical shock feeling that seems to be common with SSRI withdrawal? It happens many, many times a day.
Thanks for your help.

I went through the same thing as you with the zoloft. But I switched to another medication so I didn't have the withdrawal. But it sounds normal for what you are talking about.
