First, NO SCOLDING, all humans are guilty of doing this with a psychotropic or some other kind of medication; if they deny this, I cannot be convinced that they are giving FALSE ANSWER (S) INFORMATION. What comes to mind, for myself, I have gone to the dentist for a certain tooth, which kept me up all nite with unbearable pain. The dentist says the tooth, he believes has an abscess & gives me high -powered antibiotic. After taking the antibiotic for 8 days, no more pain, feel like a new person. But, the antibiotic was ordered for two weeks. Several weeks later, similar but more intense flare up; He scolded me, of course, got an injection of powerful (and expensive) antibiotic with another round of stronger antibiotic regimen X3 weeks.
Did you just decide you felt okay & stopped the med? Or not want to take any longer? Whatever the reason, which is valid, because this is your care and treatment, not the neighbors; peripheral laypersons love to give "free," most often useful or dangerous advice. ANNOYING! Put in a quick phone call to your prescribing clinician, just be honest about your situation-Emphasizing, you want and intend to get back on the medication, safely. Is there a re-start regimen the clinician wants you to utilize? Or, ask if the following regimen to restart the clinician wants you to follow.
What initial dose were you started on when you first began the Zoloft? Zoloft is, most usually, started low and moved upward in steps. You could follow that. The importance of not just jumping back to the 100mg dose is that the zoloft i, most likely completely out of your system. On the average, Zoloft clears from the average human in 5.5 to 6 days after stopping. And can be dangerous or pose to people without professional medical direction.
Please do not be ashamed or anything similar; honestly, you demonstrate courage and high level of intellect and asking for help/input!!!
