As they say around here...'slow but steady like a toad walking' . By the way, if you have never seen a toad walk trust me it is slow. My dad loved those old sayings. I guess I am stuck with them.  lol

As long as your quality of life is acceptable proceed. Listen to your body.

It is acceptable... the lowering process with zoloft is much easier then with Cymbalta but I know that I have to listen to my body/signals... thanks man!

Hi Gail,

 

I'm doing Okay... Last year I lowered my Zoloft to fast from 100 till 0. 

I took back off to 50mg... This summer I will lower again till 0 on a very slow pace.

 

Last year I sold my company, bought a house in Spain and this year I'm taking off again with an e-commerce firm in the EU :)

 

And how are you guys doing?

Gail? Fishinghat?

Hi Stranger!!

 

I am doing fine and about a year away from working on my Zoloft. Any tips on that 'experience'?

 

You have come a long way. I am proud of what you have accomplished.

Hi champ,

 

My recommendations starting from 100mg:

 

100mg to 75mg:
I recommend to have at least 6 weeks time for this first lowering
except of a dry mouth and what fatigue it was pretty easy.

 

75mg to 50mg:

After 6-8 weeks lowering to 50mg

still some fatigue the first 2 weeks

 

50mg to 25mg:

I will post it this summer but my first attempt was to fast for me.

I think to go even slower then 6 weeks

 

I will post a Follow up when I start at my 25mg

 

cheers and heads up guys!!

Wow, moving in with you to Spain!

So good to hear from you.

Hanging on here, so so days and good ones! By the way, I know that you have a wife but I'm moving in just the same!lol.

Now, where in Spain? Got to prepare myself.

Things are really going good for you, I'm happy for you and thanks for responding.
