I FINALLY GOT OFF Zoloft after 20 years and here is what I can tell you...


After "911" and the anthrax scare I became EXTREMELY GERMAPHOBIC. I went from picking dropped food off any surface and eating it to FULL ON only sterile food. So I told my doctor and he put me on Zoloft and told me it would alleviate those feelings, but it takes weeks to months to kick in. So you go on this and by the time you realize it didn't do SHIT you are HOOKED, you cannot just stop. So I continued to take it for years thinking it was somehow helping.

Last year I decided I need to get off this SHIT. One thing I noticed on Zoloft one side effect I actually didn't mind was "Delayed Ejaculation" (YES it's a real side effect) so when the wife or girlfriend and I had sex I could pretty much go as long as I wanted. As I got older this side effect became sometimes insurmountable and I noticed less morning wood and I had started getting depression non-sex related.

After hearing studies showing what a FUCKING LIE BIG PHARMA used to PUSH ANOTHER ADDICTIVE POISON I said "That's it I need to get this SHIT OUT OF MY BODY". I had tried before to get off Zoloft but even after trying to ease off I would end up almost suicidal do to withdrawals which included suicide thoughts and what can only be described as getting ELECTRIC SHOCKS to the brain, which included literally seeing flashed in front of my eyes.

THIS IS HOW I DID IT AND DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE ELSE DO THE SAME THING. I did ALL THIS without a doctors help

In the past I tried to get off by lowering the daily dose till I would stop and that's when the brain altering side effects would kick in.

This time I decided the VERY LONG process of not lower the dose but going 2 weeks minus one dose, then 2 weeks minus 2 doses...until it was down to ONE DOSE PER WEEK, which I did for a month, then ONE DOSE PER 2 WEEKS for another month, then ONE per three weeks, then ONE per month and In December 2022 I forgot to take the one month dose, I looked back at my log and the last dose was in mid Nov 2022.

NOW this PART IS GOING TO BE VERY CONTROVERSIAL.

During the DOSE DOWN PHASE, I added a few drinks a few times a week. I HAVE NO IDEA if this HELPED OR NOT. I do know that I drank socially before and as the Zoloft doses went down, I starting drinking less.



What have I noticed since December.

NO SHOCKS in the brain.

ZERO increased OCD or anxiety, in fact LESS OCD and LESS anxiety.

Germaphobia is NOW LOWER and I am working on kicking it OUT OF MY LIFE.


THE BIG ONE....SEX, my libeto has increased to the point where my wife told me to get a girlfriend (I a not kidding on this one) because I am like a 30 year old man again and want to nail her 3 times a day. Waking up and full mast everyday and midday. ZERO delayed finish.


ZOLOFT FUCKED ME UP for over 20 YEARS and BIG PHARMA should be PUT IN PRISON FOR PUSHING that SHIT.

NEARLY ALL MASS SHOOTERS are on Psychotropic DRUGS, they FUCK YOU UP they DO NOTHING TO HELP YOU. They ONLY people who I have researched that are helped somewhat are those with Bipolar, everyone else is just FUCKED.



Feel free to ask me any questions.
 Quoting: #Zuckerberg for Prison

I guess you never read the pamphlet.

SIDE Effects:

Nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, loss of appetite, increased sweating, diarrhea, upset stomach, or trouble sleeping may occur. If any of these effects last or get worse, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Remember that this medication has been prescribed because your doctor has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Tell your doctor right away if you have any serious side effects, including: easy bruising/bleeding, decreased interest in sex, changes in sexual ability, muscle cramps/weakness, shaking (tremor), unusual weight loss.

Get medical help right away if you have any very serious side effects, including: fast/irregular heartbeat, fainting, black/bloody stools, vomit that looks like coffee grounds, eye pain/swelling/redness, widened pupils, vision changes (such as seeing rainbows around lights at night, blurred vision).
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 80671313


I did read them and I did tell my doctor about sex issues and they told me the same thing BIG PHARMA says "These are normal and usually go away or lesson over time" by then you are dependant on them. Like I said at first delayed orgasm was kind of nice, until it became NO orgasm or only twice a month.

The fact is Pharma reps con the doctors into thinking it's safe, most doctors do not have the time to sift thru thousands of studies.

Same experience 10 years ago. I did the same thing to get off the drugs too. Probably just needed some good counseling. That is hard to find too, because so many therapist ae nut jobs themselves. Honestly none of them can show you made any improvement either. They really do not keep any charts or data, itis all very holistic on how you feel int he moment.

At least with Applied Behavioral Anaylisis (ABA) like what is used with kids with autism, they can chart what is going on and tailor the behavior goals. I see none of this with these college trained psychologist. I am certain they just make sh*t up and often makes situations worse worse, because they want the dough to keep coming in off your suffering.

I am don with their BS. I have better advice at GLP. Truth is brutal sometimes, but then you actually deal with it. The bad part about GLP is the addiction and the time it takes up in your day. I have wasted so much time here.

I did long distance therapy for my phobia 10 years ago by a Christian Phobia expert and those techniques worked then, but now work even better. Basically biblically based understanding God is bigger than any irrational fear and the fact that the fear IS irrational. Exposure therapy really works.

Correct, the brain does not have a chemical imbalance and you cannot diagnose mental health problems or treat them with chemicals.

The correct diagnoses is finding God and learning about God and living for God....by the end of it...your mental health will be healthy.

Most people have TERRIBLE mental health.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9151834


As bipolar, ashamed of things I do sometimes but not ashamed of talking openly of my manic states, deppressions and struggle and desire to know and follow God. In 9 years experience of being diagnosed, I experience God and the commandments as the number1 doctor and medicine in the world, everything else offered just a bigger or lesser poison and distraction, and shame on me for not always relying on God and falling in faith in troubled times. Thank you OP for sharing this, and good job! And thank you too for this post, it speaks to me. hf
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22735377


To be fair and this is just from what I have read, is that Bipolar is the ONE thing these drugs can sometimes help by normalizing your receptors.
 Quoting: #Zuckerberg for Prison


I only found temporary help in taking little dose of normabel to fall asleep, little dose of mood stabilizator, and some little home grown weed (very light ones that don’t even get you high, not those ‘kushes’, ‘hazes’ and all that powerful stuff). But noted, only in time of need and the feeling of the mania coming. And still, these also feel wrong because each of those too, in the longer run make me addicted and demotivied/zombified. So best theraphy and healing I still find in the hands of God and full trust and following the commandments, the struggle within.

Because I feel and think, if chemistry or ‘funny herb’ becomes solution to all my depression, anxiety or stress and later a manic state, there is no growth in me whatsoever, I feel I never learn a thing in the end that way. And I’m only telling what my experience and my feelings and research all point to in my struggle, that the last help I turn to when all fails me, is the very first I should ever turn to and the best, God. Then my family comes alive, loving people come along, and all things good. The real problem I have as I see it is not bipolar, but falling in faith and turning to vanity after a time. And there lies my real shame.

Re: I FINALLY GOT OFF Zoloft after 20 years and here is what I can tell you...
Psychiatric drugs ruined my life. I too was on them for decades. And the reason they put me on them is because I had a physical ailment they couldn’t figure out- gastro. And so they basically say we tried and hand it off to the mental doctors. The mental doctor will NEVER consider or investigate that something is physically wrong. I think most people have something physically wrong that is undiagnosed. Psych drugs fuck up your brain. Even those that it “works” for it is fucking up their brain worse. And that’s the reason after awhile the only way they can be normal is to be on them. Psychiatry is designed to scoop off the failures of the rest of the medical system and get another round of profit off it.

My psych doctors have never cared if I actually live or die. They care about getting paid and care about getting sued. That’s it. They have a lot less empathy than even regular medical doctors. Beware they are very good at faking it. And it’s all made up too. They all got together and voted on the DSM based on what they collectively observed with no concrete evidence for any of these psychiatric conditions. They literally just made them up

YOU ARE 100% correct, it took me awhile to realize that Zoloft was making it worse...it took honestly guys like Tom Cruise speaking up before I started digging deeper...I am in the Midwest, the therapist was in Cali, someone else I just happened to be talking to at an airport recommended him (they flew to Cali to spend 2 weeks with the guy and said he completely eliminated their multiple phobias) I got him to agree to phone sessions for 6 weeks.

Those SSRI's wear down the nerves that receive the signals it's designed to help amd over time they no longer are able to accept the signal the inverse of helping.
They were never meant to be long term therapies.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 83599089


hesright
Anti depressants were only supposed to help temporarily until your brain adjusted to the new reality and you got your life/ mojo back. Because time does heal all wounds. You just need that brief time to move past troubling events. You should not need anti-depressants over a year.

But the medical establishment tries to sell you on you have diabetes of the brain, with no proof other than how they believe you are feeling. Therefor they push brain insulin in the form of SSRI's that actually cut down on creative brain problem solving skills so you can overcome your situation.

Also, they aren’t sure how SSRI works. Many doctors have said it’s placebo. But it is a drug and has an effect - a negative one over the long term. My brain feels damaged and I think it messed my body up too. Many of the changes are irreversible. Coming off the drugs is Hell especially after long term use. I have withdrawaled from hard drugs and it has been worse. Most doctors don’t even think withdrawal is real so they taper or switch so fast or leave you without a script to go cold Turkey. Most of them should be in prison for what they’ve done to people

Re: I FINALLY GOT OFF Zoloft after 20 years and here is what I can tell you...
Good for you, OP. Seriously, good for you. You're not wrong, it does insanely more damage than it helps, and there's a reason they pretty much never prescribe it anymore. I was a bit shocked to see this thread, didn't know anyone still took Zoloft.

I FINALLY GOT OFF Zoloft after 20 years and here is what I can tell you...


After "911" and the anthrax scare I became EXTREMELY GERMAPHOBIC. I went from picking dropped food off any surface and eating it to FULL ON only sterile food. So I told my doctor and he put me on Zoloft and told me it would alleviate those feelings, but it takes weeks to months to kick in. So you go on this and by the time you realize it didn't do SHIT you are HOOKED, you cannot just stop. So I continued to take it for years thinking it was somehow helping.

Last year I decided I need to get off this SHIT. One thing I noticed on Zoloft one side effect I actually didn't mind was "Delayed Ejaculation" (YES it's a real side effect) so when the wife or girlfriend and I had sex I could pretty much go as long as I wanted. As I got older this side effect became sometimes insurmountable and I noticed less morning wood and I had started getting depression non-sex related.

After hearing studies showing what a FUCKING LIE BIG PHARMA used to PUSH ANOTHER ADDICTIVE POISON I said "That's it I need to get this SHIT OUT OF MY BODY". I had tried before to get off Zoloft but even after trying to ease off I would end up almost suicidal do to withdrawals which included suicide thoughts and what can only be described as getting ELECTRIC SHOCKS to the brain, which included literally seeing flashed in front of my eyes.

THIS IS HOW I DID IT AND DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE ELSE DO THE SAME THING. I did ALL THIS without a doctors help

In the past I tried to get off by lowering the daily dose till I would stop and that's when the brain altering side effects would kick in.

This time I decided the VERY LONG process of not lower the dose but going 2 weeks minus one dose, then 2 weeks minus 2 doses...until it was down to ONE DOSE PER WEEK, which I did for a month, then ONE DOSE PER 2 WEEKS for another month, then ONE per three weeks, then ONE per month and In December 2022 I forgot to take the one month dose, I looked back at my log and the last dose was in mid Nov 2022.

NOW this PART IS GOING TO BE VERY CONTROVERSIAL.

During the DOSE DOWN PHASE, I added a few drinks a few times a week. I HAVE NO IDEA if this HELPED OR NOT. I do know that I drank socially before and as the Zoloft doses went down, I starting drinking less.



What have I noticed since December.

NO SHOCKS in the brain.

ZERO increased OCD or anxiety, in fact LESS OCD and LESS anxiety.

Germaphobia is NOW LOWER and I am working on kicking it OUT OF MY LIFE.


THE BIG ONE....SEX, my libeto has increased to the point where my wife told me to get a girlfriend (I a not kidding on this one) because I am like a 30 year old man again and want to nail her 3 times a day. Waking up and full mast everyday and midday. ZERO delayed finish.


ZOLOFT FUCKED ME UP for over 20 YEARS and BIG PHARMA should be PUT IN PRISON FOR PUSHING that SHIT.

NEARLY ALL MASS SHOOTERS are on Psychotropic DRUGS, they FUCK YOU UP they DO NOTHING TO HELP YOU. They ONLY people who I have researched that are helped somewhat are those with Bipolar, everyone else is just FUCKED.



Feel free to ask me any questions.

Yeah it does the same thing for bipolar don't know why you threw that in there at the end despite it being completely false
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 85074128


Because it is NOT false, I personally know 2 people who had SEVERE bipolar and this evened them out.
 Quoting: #Zuckerberg for Prison


That is because they were on anti psychotics, not SSRI"s solely. Most peopel really do not needs these meds. What they need, is to develope a plan for a better life style.


Like getting consistent better rest. Planning and preparing for their day. Setting goals for their day and for their life. Making friends and hanging out with others. Going for walks in parks. Getting a pet. Eating healthy, by adapting a low carb diet, and working out regularly. Doing what you are supposed to do at work and showing up on time. And, leave work situation that are not working for in in your personal growth. Do some financial planning, actually save for something you want to do. You don't need a whole lot and you can't change others. What we all need to be happy is a sort of plane to know where we are going. Whinning and medicating does not help if it is prescribed or not.

Anybody have good results with professional neruofeedback? I’m just about to start or is it a waste of time and money?

I heard good things, but I heard good things about SSRIs.

No drugs, that is a plus...seems to work similar to exposure therapy which has helped my.

I'm so happy for you!! I kicked all my psych drugs cold turkey in 2008. They had told me I would likely die if I tried to wean myself off. So fuck them, I stop all at once. I'm still alive. What an awful weight off my soul! Never, ever again am I taking that shit.

I pray for your continued good mental health.

hugs

HOLY SHIT that is BADASS...I have no idea how you did it, but that told me the same thing.."If you try to get off these on your own you could be WORSE or DEAD"...


CONGRATS
 Quoting: #Zuckerberg for Prison


When I went for my blood work and they saw all my levels were zero they freaked out and yelled at me and told me I could be made to take them. At that point I quit therapy and told the psychiatrist to kick rocks. I've had some awful times since then and have never taken anything except the green. That helps a great deal in many ways.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 80061773


Do to my line of work I cannot take the green, however an occasional green to cope IMO is FAR better than being a SLAVE to SSRIs and the like. Like I said I had a few drinks a week while dosing down, not sure it that helped or not, but now I need NEITHER...although I do drink socially.
