    I have been on Zoloft for 5 years now and want to get off it.  How should I go about it?

    Reducing intake dosage has simply led to a recurrence of my depressive symptoms.

    Vineka,

     

    This is something to discuss with your doctor. Antidepressants should be discontinued under a doctor's supervision.

     

    The return of your depressive symptoms may also be an indication that you still need medication. If there's a reason you don't want to take Zoloft in particular, your doctor can explore alternatives with you.

     

    Good luck,

    Teri

    I have the same question.  I am afraid if I reduce my dosage, the same thing will happen.  Please write in any information you get about this dilemma.
