Quitting Zoloft
« on: September 19, 2017, 05:05:59 AM »
I was put on Zoloft about 6 years ago and took 100mgs daily until about 4 months ago when I went down to 50mgs. I want to go down to 25mgs next but I don't have a doctor... these are capsules, not pills, so I can't split them since it's a powder inside there. Does anyone have experience with SSRI discontinuation? Do you think I could just stop taking it now that I'm down to 50mgs or should I figure out some other way to get a lower dose first? I feel like Zoloft has deadened my good feelings as well as my bad and I can't take it anymore. I need to get off of it ASAP.

No one here is qualified to answer medication questions like the one you are asking. Please talk to a physician, pharmacist or therapist.

That being said, I do know a person struggling to get off of a different med that was also in capsule form. She was opening the capsules and redistributing the contents into new gel caps she purchased at a health food store.

Let us know what your doctor or pharmacist says
