Hi Suebird,

I am sorry I do not have the answer for you on your medication question. I think, perhaps, that the best person to discuss this issue with is your physician.

Someone else may have information  yeah

How long have you taken this med and IMO it might just be a side effect that will go away
I agree talk to your doc about it okay and let us know
I am not on this med so I am sorry I cannot help you

Hi everyone,

I have been on the zoloft for almost 12 weeks now and I spoke with the Dr yesterday and he has decided to lower my zoloft from 150 mgs to 100mgs he thanks I maybe on to high of a dose and thats why i'm still having the side effect and stomach problems still in the morning., and I was suppose to be weaning off the zyprexa i'm down to 2.5 mgs now and he told me to keep it at that dose until we see how i'm going to do on the lower dose of zoloft. Also I take .5mg of klonopin split it in half take moring and night. I hope this change will work for me. Also does anyone thank im going to have any withdraw from lowing the zoloft. Pleae write back.

Thank You Sue

Hey, this is my first post, and i'm not a doctor. From my own experience, i've had withdrawal symptoms in the past from going down on zoloft. Since you have been on it for 12 weeks, i'm not quite sure how much they will effect you, especially if you're on too high of a dose. It seems to me, if that is the case, you might feel some withdrawal, but the benefits of being on the right dose might make you fell better all around.

These drugs seem to effect us all so differently. For me, I went down very slow. I was at 100MG and it took me a year to completely tapper off. I tried a faster approach one time and the withdrawals where very strong.

just keep a close eye on yourself, which i'm sure you will do. Hopefully bringing you to the dose you should be on will just make ya feel better!

Take care_
