Hi! Two years ago I gradually decreased  Sertraline from 200mg to 25mg.  When I hit 25mg I had long lasting crying spells, body aches, brain zaps, etc.  I tried for two weeks but ended up going back up to 50mg where I’ve been stable since.. Now I am ready to try again and hopefully completely wean off! Thankful for the group.
