Can someone tell me how long this feeling lasts and if there's anything I can do to get rid of this dizziness? I am off almost 5 days. Shouldn't the vertigo feeling go away soon?

Hello Kgnyc. I am afraid that the side effects could be with you a bit longer. Its not uncommon to continue feeling them for weeks on end. Going cold turkey is extremely harsh on your body physically and a taper is usually the route to go to ease and comfort the possibility of withdrawl symptoms. An option might be to restart the Zoloft, on a lower dose, then wean, taper off from there. Best of wishes to you, pledge
