  1. I'm okay. I had some anxiety this morning. I'm afraid to go to the doctor because they will change meds and then I will have withdrawal from the Zoloft. These doctors don't know anything about getting people off of meds safely and only make things worse by adding more. I feel like my only option is to taper very, very slowly probably years.
  2. After tapering down very quickly and after being off for only a full day. I proceeded to updose back to my regular dosage of 200mg. I am still having these extreme sweats it's been two months now. This never happened to me the entire time I was on Zoloft. I can't eat, don't really drink anything all day just decaf coffee. I'm afraid that my life is over and I don't know what to do. I am having SI which I don't like because I love life. I don't think there is any hope because these doctors i'm afraid don't know anything about these meds and it makes me want to cry that they have destroyed my life.
  3. How long were you on Zoloft for I'm scared to switch and then have withdrawals from the zoloft how was the transition?
  4. You better be careful. You are headed for trouble. Maybe you should go to survivngantidepressants.org They can tell you the proper way to taper, Doctors don't know how to taper properly.
  5. I don't want to switch to another SSRI because then I will have withdrawal from the Zoloft and no guarantee that the other SSRI will work. I am already taking 15mg of Mirtazipine. These drugs really backfire on you don't they?
  6. Holding steady at 50 mg of Zoloft. Taking tons of supplements especially Niacin and B Vitamins, melatonin for sleep. Hope to taper to 40 mg soon. Going slowly now!
  7. Well, I guess I spoke to soon. Terrible withdrawal yesterday, I guess I went too fast. Back on 50 mg of Zoloft but going to keep working with these natural supplements while I taper down...
  8. I am now free of Zoloft after 18 years! Slow taper and supplement with B Vitamins and Niacin (flushing kind as it does not destroy your liver) I do not feel apathetic about life anymore like I was on Zoloft. I believe these vitamins help!
  9. Just for a little over a week after weaning off of SSRI's . The SSRI's made me very apathetic and made some poor choices recently. I feel like a real human again, with real feelings and knowing/ feeling the consequences of my behaviour. I have quit 5 jobs in the last 2.5 years because I did not care anymore. Now I have to start over in my career after all of my hard work getting to where I was. But at least now I feel awake and aware with real feelings. I truly believe, although Antidepressants literally saved my life in 99 that they have become detrimental to my well being, mental health included. I hate Big Pharma, it's nothing but a money making racket. Do your research on Niacin ( the flushing kind only), you'll see!!
  10. Did a lot of research.. Taking 5HTP, Niacin, B Complex, and Magnesium! I have more energy than i've had in years! Thanks to the "Mood Cure"
  11. I moved to a new state and had so much anxiety, I couldn't work. I quit several jobs because I didn't want to be here. Now I have accepted being here, I cannot find a job! Now this is making me seriously depressed. I have gone on so many interviews and either over-qualified or under-qualifed. I don't know what to do anymore. I'm at the end of my rope. I keep trying to stay positive, nothing is working. I don't know what to do anymore and it's starting to scare me. I've completely ruined my career and my awesome work history and now no one will hire me.
  12. Thank you, I just sent an email. They probably won't respond....
