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

LMAO....yeah another ADDICTION, at least it is not a PILL
 Quoting: #Zuckerberg for Prison


GLP addiction is probably worse because I sit all day in front of a computer. My back kills me most days, but I won't leave my computer. Sitting as you know will shorten your life span. The average age for long haul trucker is 61. They all get heart attacks and strokes at an early age.
 Quoting: God Fearing Atheist


Set a timer for 30 minutes and when it goes off stand up and do some stretches and some low impact jumping jacks. You can do some lunges or knee bends. Just a few. Do it for five minutes. Just get up and do something every 30 minutes. And this can be right by your computer. It will help your back and emotions.

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.

Doesnt take a genius to figure out you need to taper off these poisons, they are all addictive, plenty of forums with benzo zombies who are stuck on these pills, only way to get off is slow tapering over months and months

Re: I FINALLY GOT OFF Zoloft after 20 years and here is what I can tell you...
I had the same horrible withdrawal experience with Effexor. Suicidal thoughts, panic, brain zaps, sweats. I would walk in circles talking to myself...seriously thought I was brain damaged. After a couple of months the withdrawal effects finally settled down and probably took 4-6 months before I felt normal again. I had initially taken Effexor for anxiety but the withdrawal effects were far worse than the anxiety I had before taking the drug.

One thing I will say is that certain SSRI and SNRI drugs have longer half-lifes than others. The shorter the half-life of the drug in your system the worse the withdrawal syndromes are.

Prozac has a fairly long half-life so withdrawal is usually much easier. While I would never go back on Effexor I have occasionally gone on Prozac for a few months if my OCD starts kicking in and then getting off after a month or two. The withdrawal effects for Prozac at least for me are much more minor than the horrible Effexor withdrawal.

With that said...I usually don't take anything most of the year and just exercise and do some yoga to deal with anxiety. Much better not to take these SSRIs if you can avoid them. Socializing alot, working out and eating healthy and doing cardio every day goes a long way to making me not need them. In the past ten year the only time I've felt I 'needed' something was a handful of times my OCD was picking up and I would do a 3 month quick on and off of a low dose of Prozac. That would usually quiet it down for the next year or so and getting off Prozac at least for me has almost no withdrawal effects because of the long half-life of the drug.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79407310


The saddest thing about OCD is that if people were taught what OCD was they could deal with it early. Early treatment for OCD does not REQUIRE drugs, just recognition and if you DO NOT GIVE into the OCD panic attacks early, they will go away. Had I known what was happening to me, I would have just ignored the impulses and been done with it in a few weeks. Giving into OCD reinforces it.
 Quoting: #Zuckerberg for Prison


I never had panics from OCD, just occasionally from anxiety. The OCD would manifest as me having repeat behaviors multiple times like closing and opening a door or touching a light switch until the feeling or sound was just 'right'. I also would occasionally get twitches, kind of a mild tourette tic in my eye and shoulder. A low dose of Prozac or sometimes a chamomile tea or clonepin would relax it and it would go away.

Zoloft keeps me stable.

Last time I went without it for an extended period of time, my ptsd with severe dissociative symptoms reared its ugly head and I ended up in jail...almost died.

Some people legitimately need psychiatric medication ...

Are these brain zaps what is called Exploding Head Syndrome? I have this and found out the name by googling head sounds and reading forums.

It sounds like someone is nailing wood in my brain. Not physical, the sound only. Sometimes it sounds like the wood and sometimes a “ting” like a hammer hitting a nail or a chime. Mostly at night and not when sleeping. It’s when my day is winding down though.

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.

OP, If you continue juggling a wife and a a girl friend Zoloft will end up being the least of your worries...

The wife may say yes to a GF now but she will say I want my 1/2 later.

I took one Zoloft pill years ago and it was a very bad few hours. I wonder if I was allergic or something but that pill worried me.
I have never taken any antidepressants again.

Re: I FINALLY GOT OFF Zoloft after 20 years and here is what I can tell you...
Tip from first hand experience - But DON’T try this without consulting a doctor first - it can be DISASTROUS - and by that I mean it can lead to a negative outcome of suicide.

I’ve been on Venlafaxine (Effexor) since 2005. I got a wild hair once and decided I was evolved and a big girl and I could handle life UNmedicated. Felt silly to use this dumb pill as a crutch just to cope with life. And just pathetic and lame

I had tried before to “wean off” several times…with AWFUL results (the brain zaps OP mentioned are no joke - not to mention the NAUSEA and other weird symptoms).

This final time, I literally pulled those little plastic capsules apart…got a magnifying glass, and separated this little circles of evil into groups…the particles are SO TINY - it’s hard to keep track without spilling them but I was worried my pets would get ahold of them so I did it SUPER CAREFULLY. I counted those bitches out every single night…started with every little dot…waited a few day…took ONE LESS dot than the day before, monitored myself for any side effects, then went on and on every few days counting dots like an insane person (literally). But it worked and I DIDN’T end up psychotic (yayyy!! Been there and THAT’S no fun) - take it or leave it. It may be a well known method of weaning off these evil drugs…but I did it out of desperation, so maybe it will help someone else. If you don’t take your time with it and be nauseatingly patient and continue to count those damn dots and GO SLOW, I can’t help you - you’ll end up in a bad way I promise. Take it or leave it. It helped me. Did I eventually decide life sucks to a degree I can’t manage and go right back on it a month later?????? Well, maybe it will work for you anyway!

It does, if you get an overly enlarged prostate, the first drug you take is one that causes retrograde ejaculation. First time it happened to me and my wife, I just stopped and told her I don't get what's going on down there, IN short it's when your wad goes the opposite direction and lands in your own bladder. Bye bye, cream pie.

That is from the lessor problamatic drug the others they give you are called alpha 5 reducers and work to minimize dht in your system: the one they prescribed me was finasteride and the side effects are horrible and can become permanent. I opted to not taken that one. At this point there are some procedures open to you

THe procedures include various methods of roto rootering out your prostate tissue to allow more room for the piss to come out. This is typically an outpatient surgery done thru your pee hole, they shove a tube all the way up there and perform the procedure thru that tube.

THe problem you run into if you don't get this taken care of is you are unable to piss. The only solution is a catheter. NO fun. I now have the ability to "Self cath" I have a couple kits in the bathroom ready to go. I've had to do it once, it's not fun but better than having nearly a litre of pee backed up in your bladder.

getting old isn't for the faint of heart, if your equipment is working tippy top, good on you, enjoy it while you can, because it can get strange real fast in your 50's. and it only goes down hill from there.
NO ONE EVER TOLD ME This. If you can figure out how to minimize your BPH, Do it.

This was very retarded, my ex finally took it after being a total psychopath and it helped her tremendously, my other ex took it too total night and day difference.

She then just stopped taking it and became an unbearable asshole, there are def chemical imbalances in some people. When they take it they actually become more positive upbeat.

As soon as they are off they are paranoid delusional borderline fucks. I’m talking about people with real diagnosed problems. To just dismiss it is literally stupid.

Obviously there are natural alternative for people, but if they don’t take them for whatever reason, rather Zoloft than nothing.

Don’t worry though according to the retards here there is no thing as chemical imbalances and Zoloft doesn’t increase serotonin that’s why you feel like shit coming off because low serotonin levels.

My guess is cut out a dose like op, and also replace with something else as having low serotonin you’ll be fucked.

And honestly if those don’t do anything for you after you’re completely off, you should rather stay on Zoloft than become a total non functioning human. The simple fact that you’ve been on it and countless of others for 20+ years shows it’s safety.

I’m all for natural remedies but if they don’t help for your specific biological profile better Zoloft than ruining your own life and others around you.

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