Dr. Stopped taking ins., don't have $ to see them. Almost out of Zoloft (sertraline) 100mgs, had brain zaps before when getting off. How can I ween off safely?
Taper slowly: Zoloft (sertraline) is available in generic form and is inexpensive, so if it is helpful to you, it is unclear why you would need to stop this drug for financial reasons. However, you can avoid withdrawal symptoms by tapering off slowly-- 75mg for a few days (until you adjust to the new lower dose), then 50mg, then 25mg. ...Read more

Why would I of been prescribed Zoloft (sertraline) if serotonin makes skin burning worse ? Would amitriptyline help instead ?
They didn't know: Amitriptyline also has a long, long list of possible side effects. Not everyone suffers them, certainly not all of them but they are possible. Same w/ your Zoloft (sertraline).

Don't try to self- Rx - it takes training and you're sensitive on top of that. ...Read more
