Can anyone tell me how long it has taken them to get back to baseline after dropping an AD? I was only able to take Zoloft for a short time before it felt like there were electric impulses going through me and I was having large “jumps” in my extremities.
Guess meds are not going to help me. I have tried many but not many AD’s.
Hi Sally. I’m not sure how long you were on Zoloft but I was on Effexor for 2 weeks taking 18.75 mg. I had to drop it after having insomnia for 2 straight weeks and a fast heart rate. I went cold turkey. No weaning & I had no problems at all. I was worried after reading all the horror stories but for me it wasn’t bad. (I was only on it for 2 weeks though at a very low dose) I just started Zoloft a few days ago & I’m waiting to see what happens.
Yes, Lisa I did without success. It made me worse. Frankly, I have not found anything to be helpful. Wish I could tell you something more hopeful but it has been over 5 years with no relief. The feeling of movement in bed at night is disconcerting. Most med’s make me feel like I have electrical impulses going through me. The tri-cyclics help with head pain but make the movement worse. Sometimes I take them just to be rid of the headache.
