I quit taking it last September. I was taking 200mg and had been on this dose for about
5 or 6 yrs...hard to remember. Anyway, I dropped down 50mg every week until the last week I cut the last 50mg in quarters for a week. So yeah I did it pretty slowly and I still had some side effects from it...for about
2 weeks. Then I went on Effexor Xr. If your going to see a psych doc then maybe stay on it until you see them and if you want to switch depending on how much your taking they can most likely put you on something else without you having to taper the Zoloft. Which will avoid most of the side effects and keep your serotinon levels up which is why you were feeling so crappy when you stopped it...your levels were returning to normal.
