I have been off Zoloft for about 6 weeks now and still have withdrawal effects including trouble concentrating and remembering things and fatigue what are some supplements that other people have found helpful in this withdrawal process as well as any successful stories would absolutely wonderful and reassuring because I am struggling right now and debating on giving up and going back on the zoloft

hi selu.

welcome 2 the forum,

zoloft is hard to come of. i recommend that you have a chat
with your doctor about what is happening. you can discuss
your options also.

with healing compassion 2 u,

Hi Selu,

Welcome to the forum. Jamie has given you some good advice, Talking to your doctor is best. If you can't tolerate it, there are many more to try. Take it one day at a time going off. Medications are hard to stop, but in a few days you should feel better from withdrawal symptoms.

Take care, keep posting...

No, I haven't... But I have heard of Dephlin, St Johnswort and 5htp. I don't know if any of these will help you but they might. Don Quai is also suppose to help a little.

Hope you find what works for you. Side effects usually go away in a couple of weeks. Give it that much time if you can...

Hugs, Karen

Yea I've tried 5 htp helps a little just sucks cuz my thinking is all screwed up and I've read to where a lot of people have experienced that I'm
Debating on whether to get back on the Zoloft or keep fighting through it wish I could hear a success story of someone getting off the drug but I have yet to see that also would like to read about the long term effects of being on Zoloft cuz that is in part y I got off the medication
I'm in a dilemma here and need to weigh my options lol

You can get off of medications, but some are harder than others. Effexor is really hard, and so is cymbalta. And a lot of it is in the individual, some people do off easier than others. So everybody is different. There have been many meds I have switched with no problem. But going off is another story.

But you can always try something and go off later. I wouldn't worry about that part now, just take some time and find what is right for you. It may take a few tries. After the first and how you are effected by it, the doc usually has an idea as to what is most likely to work for you. I had to try a few before i found what worked for me. Just love them meds, not... I don't think anybody wants to take them but we have to.

Take care and have a great day!!!

Hugs, Karen

Thank u Karen im probably just gonna get back on the Zoloft it worked great for me I guess I got off it because I was concerned about the long term effects of being on it which im not sure what they are as well as being self conscious about being on an antidepressant but if it increases my quality of life I shouldn't worry it's like diabetics need their insulin
Well my anxiety requires Zoloft to enjoy life if u were to say I could live to age 70 and live my life like when I was on zoloft or live to age 80 without the Zoloft I would choose to live shorter with the Zoloft
