Hi everyone. I am new to the forums and have a very important question. I am planning to wean off of my SSRI, Sertraline (generic of Zoloft). I have been on it for 4 months now. I was on 25, then 50, and for about 2 months now have been on 100mg. What is the best way to do this?

Also, does anybody think this is a bad idea? I was put on them for Depression and Social Anxiety... I was having really intense suicidal thoughts but had also just gone through a really traumatic experience as well as moved to a new place where I didnt know anybody. I am now back home with family and feeling much better. I also have a naturopathic dr who's attempting to balance out my body's levels (of vitamins and proteins, she looked at my bloodwork and realized I had been depriving my body of a lot of nutrients due to a combination of vegetarianism and depression). She said as soon as my body leveled out I would start feeling much better. I don't want to become dependent on drugs to heal myself, especially since I'm planning to work in a developing country for about a year in September = no psychiatrists.
