Hello canbeseen. I was also once on zoloft. I believe that your tapering, was to much, to quickly. Zoloft has a very fast half-life, and leaves your body very quickly, thats why you noticed the withdrawl as fast as you did. I'd say given the dose of 50mg, that you are pretty well over the hump. If you still feel the anxiety, you might cut a pill in half, or in four quarters, take a quarter of a pill; and if you don't feel better, then take another quarter. The other drugs you mentioned, i'm not familar in as to how to safely begin to taper of from them.very best to you and hoping you feel better asap.
Hey Candbeseen, Welcome to the group. Zoloft, Hydrocodone & Soma is not that great of a combination. How long, and what is your daily dose of Hydrocodone? Depending on the dose and length of time you have been on Hydro, you may need some help getting off. Don't just stop any of these drugs abruptly. Your doctor needs to work with you on coming off these drugs. I am in the process right now in coming off some of the drugs I am on, I have had to slowly taper off, still tapering over a month now." Forgive" me I do see you are tapering the Zoloft. I am a Hydrocodone addict, I took allot each day for over 8 years, That *@^^*iT nearly killed me. Keep us posted on your progress! See YA Dave
