How To Taper Off Zoloft
Depends: Depends on the dose you were on, and your particular sensitivity to changes in ssri levels.

Personally, since there's virtually no downside to tapering, i taper everyone to 25 mg before discontinuing. Talk to your doc about tapering. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If you have any thoughts about how to change from one to the other though, you should get your instructions from your long term provider. They should have a chance to approve anything we say here, at least. ...Read more
