Gincosan ; Zoloft (sertraline): Gincosan = both gingko and panax ginseng (asian ginseng).

Who recommended STOP: If you were the one to execute the sudden stoppage of these medications then, my suggestion is to return to them and check with your doctor to get a weaning schedule. If it was your doctor's recommendation that you go cold turkey then, have you communicated with them to let them know you're not feeling well to see what options are available? ...Read more
