Well, I know it's not the smartest thing to do, but my state insurance dropped me, and I have no access to a doc at the moment. Well, I could go to Health Dept. but that's a "lottery" doc thing, you could see a diff. one each time, which probably isn't productive. Anyway.. my insurance would never pay for the Zoloft, and my doc was keeping me in samples, b/c he wanted me to stay on it, for fibro/mild anxiety not depression.
I didn't want to end up in situation of suddenly being "out" due to the lack of insurance and having withdrawal, so I decided to step it down myself. So far, it's been almost a week going from 50 mg to 25mg and I don't seem to have many problems. Maybe a little more anxiety at bedtime than I'm used to lately, but other than that I feel fine. I'm also dog sick with nasty sinus issues, so don't really care lol.
I'm wondering if anyone else has been in this situation and had success.
I'm also attempting to get pregnant with another child, so don't want to stay on all my meds thru the pregnancy. I came off my Klonopin on my own, I didn't take much and not a daily thing, so stopping it caused me no problems. The only meds I am taking now are the reduced zoloft, and lortab and benadryl. Lortab I know is a gray area with pregnancy (have to test in two weeks!!!) but due to physical conditions, a 'have to' drug for me. I knew the klono was a no no, not sure about the Zoloft, but positive that ending up in situation where I had NONE to take wouldn't be healthy.
I'm rambling, must be alllll the cold/sinus meds..lol. Anyway, the main point is has anyone gone from 25mg Zoloft to none? I've taken it for a year about. Not sure if I should cut the 25's in half, or just try stopping them.. figured I'd give it another week on this dosage first.
Thanks for following this long post!!
