I was on Sertraline for about 2 years & 4 months for panic attacks, anxiety, OCD disturbing thoughts & some depression (caused by the panic attacks) I was very reluctant to take anything since I am into more natural remedies but after trying everything I could for months I decided to take the medicine. Thank God Sertraline worked great for most all of my symptoms! I was on 100mg for about a year & then 50mg for the 2nd year & weaned down to 25mg and then weaned very very slowly over 2-3 months. Fast forward to now I think I stopped taking my last little piece about 3 months ago. I learned a lesson here-ALWAYS keep track of the day you officially stop your medicine lol. I think it's been 3 month but it could be 2 or 4 months now. Anyway I am feeling VERY depressed since stopping but not 24/7 it is very back & forth & just feeling not myself at all-crazy is the best word that comes to mind lol. No panic attacks thank God & Anxiety is not as bad but def back some with some OCD thoughts & alot of disassociation. My question is are these normal symptoms of coming off the sertraline? (Not while you are tapering off but after you stop taking it all together) & will these symptoms go away & then I will feel like myself OR is this just how I feel now that I am not on my medicine & an indicator that I need to get back on it. I hear mixed answers on how long it takes to fully get out of your system. I am so confused & I really don't want to have to rely on a pill everyday but I also don't want to feel this way it's horrible! I don't want to make the wrong decision & get back on the meds when everything will even out soon & my body will be back in balance OR wait too long to make a decision & continue feeling worse then have to wait for the drug to get back in my system to feel any relief. Get back on the medicine or give it more time?? Any insight is greatly appreciated.
