I stopped my Zoloft (25mg) a week ago. My head cleared up a bit, so I guess it really wasn't the "right" med for me. I thought, moronically, that the dose was so low, I could just quit. Made it good until last night, started having "zaps" all through my body, and the weird feeling when I lay down, like the beginning of an elevator descent.. you know that feeling like the floor just fell out from under you?
I'm not sure if it's the actual loss of the zoloft causing the panicky feeling I have right now, or my mind playing games b/c I realized that I WAS in withdrawal. But I don't like it..lol. I wasn't taking zoloft for anxiety, it was for fibromyalgia.
How long does withdrawal typically last? And is it *odd* to start withdrawing after almost a week goes by? Instead of in a couple days?
I'm not procrastinating----I'm still doing yesterday!!!!
I have no medical training, any medical opinions expressed in my posts are just that....opinions.
