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.

However, I have been put on Sertraline (Zoloft) 150mg (antidepressant) and I can no longer have Imigran, and my GP has given me Clotam 200mg. How effective is Clotam in easing migraines? I am very worried that the next one I have will not be eased by this drug, and therefore I will be suffering for at least 3 - 4 days. My migraines are that bad I feel suicidal when I have them as I could not describe to you how bad the pain is. Also, my GP has given me Clotam in tablet form. How long does it take to be absorbed into my stomach as I vomit pretty quickly. I thought maybe taking Stemetil immediately with the Clotam may stop me vomiting and let the tablet absorb. Can you give...
