Will I Experience Withdrawal Symptoms Stopping Zoloft After Only Using It 3 Days
Will I experience withdrawal symptoms stopping Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg after only two weeks of use?
Minimal: Minimal, but it is advisable to wean off gradually over few days (for this short period of use). Check with your doctor, he knows you best and he has the final word on this for you. ...Read more
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

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.

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

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 more
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 more

Is there tapering off procedure when stopping 6 mg of Prozac (fluoxetine) in Children if he took it for 3 weeks only. Any withdrawal symptoms?
No: Withdrawal from medications/drugs/substances results from stopping it after you have taken it long enough for your body to acknowledge that it is no longer receiving it. Different drug characteristics cause for a different required amount of time & different time frame when to expect onset and ending of withdrawal. Sporadic use often doesn't result in withdrawal; everyone doesn't withdraw the same. ...Read more
