Hi all,

I've been cutting down my zoloft dose for a while now and untill about 3/4 days ago i was on 87,5 mg (1/2 of a 100 mg tab+ 1/2 of a 50 mg tab+1/4 of a 50 mg tab).

3 to 4 day ago, following my docs directions i uppes my dose of remeron from 22,5 to 30 and art the same time lowered the zoloft dose to 75 mg ( so i cut back 12,5 mg)

now I've been feeling more depressed and sad and anxious and with out motivation during these 3 to 4 days...

I'm wondering if it could be the zoloft withdraw... is there anyone out there that has had the same experience?

Hi Charlie

I am not a professional but both decreasing and increasing your meds can create side effects so it could be a mix of decreasing the Zoloft and increasing the Remeron. It should pass, but if you still feel this way in a while, then you should go back to your doc.

Hi Charlie84,

I've read that many people suffer this same type of change when increasing one medication and decreasing another. I'm sure it will take some time for your body to totally rid itself of the Zoloft and become fully functional with the Remeron.

I hope you start to feel better very soon.

Sincerely,

MaddieLouise
