How Long Do Sertraline Withdrawal Symptoms Last
I stopped Sertraline cold turkey after about 5 years on it. I only took a small dosage of 25 mg. My question is, how long do the withdrawal symptoms last? I felt swimmy headed for about 2 weeks, that finally went away, and now I just have random sudden
Sertraline withdraw: Withdrawal from sertraline can take days to weeks, particularly if you were taking it for several years.

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.

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 1 more doctor answer

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?
I went off of Zoloft 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
