For the first time in roughly ten years, I am 100% Zoloft-free. I've struggled with depression for as long as I can remember, but it took me quite a few years to realize what was going on. It took me even longer to admit/accept that treatment was necessary. I can't say enough about the wonders of Zoloft.
Of course, as with anything, there are downsides. For years, the negatives paled in comparison to the benefits, but I no longer believe this to be the case. So I've given Zoloft the boot...and it's fighting back! I expected a few emotional moments during my six-week weaning process, but that has actually been very minimal. The worst of it has been the headaches and dizziness...the physical withdrawal symptoms can be quite brutal. I had no idea! Kinda makes me hope I can stay drug-free for good! Wish me luck...or more accurately, wish Hunter luck! :)
