I have been on anti depressants for about four years, after my first son was about 8 months and I was honest about having PPD and anxiety. I was on Paxil until we decided to have our second and I got on Zoloft. I was on 50 mg for about a year and a half, then felt real spacy, out of it, and a doc recommended I get down to 25 mg so we could go to something different. I have been on 25 for about 10 months now and I feel SO out of it, can't focus, a very disconnected and detached feeling. I had about two serious Panic Attacks (my first). I have started to see a psychologist who I love, I'm getting so much out of it. It's hard work going through all the junk in my past but I feel like I will be a more grounded person in the future for it. I have also read this book, the anxiety and phobia workbook, which has taught me SO much and panic and anxiety.
I'm looking for some advice on weaning myself off Zoloft. I have heard some negatives on withdrawal, so I thought since I take 25 now I can half it for a couple days, and then go every other day and then stop?
I would really like to try a more natural approach, exercise, healthier eating, Kava Kava, Valarian Root, Sam-E? Anyone been through the same?
