Ask your doctor: 12.5 mg of Zoloft (sertraline) is a really small dose already, so I'm guessing that maybe your doctor wanted to start you on a low dose and gradually adjust it as needed to control your symptoms. You should never ask a friend or look on the internet (even if it's a MD you're talking to) when it comes to discontinuing medication. It is important that you keep your doctor in the loop in regards to meds!

See your physician: See the physician that prescribed the Zoloft (sertraline) to you in order to determine why you would like to taper off of it as well as the safest way to do so. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a697048.html
