DEPENDS ON SYMPTOM: In an otherwise healthy patient, whose dose has been gradually reduced prior to discontinuing, symptoms are usually mild and "self-limiting". Two to four weeks is common. Symptoms which were relieved with the zoloft (sertraline) may rebound on discontinuation and are not the same as the withdrawal symptoms. Patients differ. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
If stopped suddenly,: The ssri's can cause a discontinuation syndrome that can make you feel like you have the flu for a week or so. It can also give you what my patients call brain zaps and the feeling that when you turn your head, it takes a second for your eyes to catch up. Why not taper it with your doctor's help? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Will I experience withdrawal symptoms stopping Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg after only two weeks of use?
I've been on sertraline 200mg for 6years, I've stopped them completely, its what I want, its been 1wk, when will withdrawal symptoms end as I feel crazy.
Hard to say: You say you abruptly stopped a substantial dose of sertaline. It's not likely to be life-threatening, but could be very uncomfortable for several weeks. If you're determined to stop the medication (and your doctor agrees this is wise) you could work together in a more gradual process. I see you're on fluoxetine, venlafaxine, and amitriptylene also though -- so if this is true you may be fine. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

SSRI discontinuation syndrome symptoms may include: flu-like sx’s, insomnia, nightmares, vivid dreams, anxiety, tearfulness, low mood, irritability, nausea, vomiting, cramps, loose stools, loss of appetite, dizziness, flushing, sweating, headache, lethargy, imbalance, vertigo, sensation of electric shocks & other ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tapering off of. 5 mg of klonopin after taking it for 10 yrs for anxiety and ocd. Taking Zoloft (sertraline) in its place. What withdrawal symptoms will I have?

I went off of Zoloft (sertraline) recently and all withdrawal symptoms have subsided except for horribly fowl gas and stomach discomfort. When/How will this stop?
Soon: Robert, hopefully you stopped your sertraline (Zoloft) with the help of your physician. I would be more worried that your psychiatric symptoms could come back. If you were on sertraline for over a month, it may take about a week for the stomach upset to subside. If it lasts longer than this your stomach issues are unlikely due to the sertraline, and I would see your physician for a work-up. ...Read more
Can I take Zoloft to help withdrawal symptoms from pristiq (desvenlafaxine) until I can get the pristiq (desvenlafaxine) filled tomorrow?
Not generally: A good idea to take Depression medicines intermittently or as needed. Not sure if it will help. Zoloft is quite different than Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) and may cause unwanted side effects even if taken for only 1 or 2 days. You may try any over the counter headache / nausea med which are the main side effects of "withdrawal". Maybe a Physician from your State is available on HeathTaP Prime to refill today? ...Read more
I have ran out of my prescription of citalopram (40mg). I am away now for 4 days. Can I take my old setraline until then to avoid withdrawal symptoms?
Alcohol withdrawal: Acute use of alcohol in excess usually causes symptoms for no more than 24 hours, and they are worst the morning after. With chronic alcohol use, to some extent duration of symptoms depends on amount being used. The physical withdrawal is usually ending in 3-4 days but longer lasting symptoms can last months or longer. ...Read more
