I've only been taking Zoloft once a day (50 mgs) for about 3 months due to panic disorder & am going to start weaning off. I have a prescription for 25 mgs. How long will I need to take the 25 mgs & after that do I just stop taking it all together?

Don't stop taking it all together! I am currently weaning off of it also, for the last few weeks (from 175mgs). I forgot to take a dose 2 days ago, the next day I was in full body pain, sever headache, incessant crying and generally thinking I was dying! I think I was experiencing with drawl. I took my dosage and feel much better today.
My Dr. has me stepping down 25mgs. at a time and taking that for at least 5 days before stepping down again.
I would certainly contact you dr. and find out what they recommend, but don't just stop taking it!
I hope this helps and I hope the process goes smoothly for you! =)
