BetsyRose: Withdrawal symptoms

Recommended Posts

I started taking 50 mg Zoloft about 6 weeks ago. I had horrible side effects but it took me a while to realize it - I thought I was just sick! At first I was nauseous and achy and then I had terrible headaches for weeks. I thought I had a sinus infection. Over the 6 weeks it started to get better very slowly but I would still get the headaches. I started tapering to 25mg about a week ago but got impatient after about 3 days and just stopped it altogether. I was fine for a few days, and all of a sudden last night my headache came back like crazy! So last night I took 25mg. Today I’ve had a horrible headache and some nausea/achiness too. Should I continue at 25?

Welcome, BetsyRose.


If I were you, I'd reduce the Zoloft dosage to 10mg because you and Zoloft don't get along. This topic explains how to take a small dose Tips for tapering off Zoloft (sertraline)
