Need to ween off.: Severe withdrawal symptoms may occur if the dose is significantly reduced or suddenly stopped. Reducing the dose gradually under medical supervision can help prevent or decrease these withdrawal symptoms. Do not suddenly stop taking this medication without talking to your doctor.

Talk to your doctor: Zoloft (sertraline) can be tapered in 1 week or so. Please talk to your prescribing doc before making any changes in your meds.

Zoloft (sertraline): If given enough time, it can work for anxiety.

Yes: Creatinine monohydrate should not interfere with the other drugs you are taking.

No: You will still have both Klonopin and zoloft (sertraline) in your system, and drinking alcohol is not advised.
