I don't know why it is, but I have had trouble being out in sunshine since I was a teenager. I can remember going out to sunbathe on our deck and feeling giddy after a very short time. Now, I am very fair-skinned, but I could - and did - tan nicely during the summers when I was young, playing outside a lot with neighborhood kids. But the older I got, the more sun- and heat-intolerant I became.
I can remember trying to mow my own lawn once when I couldn't find anyone else to do it. It was blistering hot but the lawn was looking awful - people were commenting on it. I don't know how long I lasted but suddenly I was dizzy and nauseated. Running into the house via the garage, I went down to the floor as soon as I got inside and literally crawled into the basement shower. I managed to turn the cold water on and lay there, fully clothed, until I felt I could get up.
This happened once more when I wasn't even working hard, and it wasn't terribly hot. While visiting my brother i...

How long does withdrawal from Zoloft take, and are there any serious side effects that will damage the brain? As far as we know, SSRI withdrawal does not cause permanent damage. But it feels like a bad flu, so it's not fun. The withdrawal is based on two factors: the half-life of the drug and the "potency" of the drug. The short half-life drugs such as Paxil tend to produce worse withdrawal than longer half-life drugs, such as Prozac. Many psychiatrists take advantage of the long half-life of Prozac and prescribe a single dose to treat withdrawal from the other SSRIs. Importantly, there is cross-coverage from other drugs. Stopping Paxil cold will produce withdrawal, but switching Paxil to Zoloft, for example, should protect you from it. In addition, this withdrawal effect is (mostly) limited to serotonergic antidepressants. Wellbutrin is not expected to have this effect.
