You don't say how long you've been on Sertraline, but NEVER NEVER stop abruptly as you can develope discontinuation syndrome. You don't want that trust me. I stopped and started, missed days on sertraline and one morning just turned my head to the side and the entire room was spinning. I panicked and held on to walls to reach my phone to call 911. I was hospitalized overnight for observation with intravenous meds and could not turn my head if I did the world was spinning horribly. I was never a fan of roller coaster rides etc but this was frightening. I had to reinstate the sertraline 25 mg and it took over a week to feel a little better. I will never play around with that med again. You cannot come off of it easily you must taper and only through your Doctor. Good luck.
