I've been on Zoloft 50 mg for a month. It is ineffective, I have terrible sedation and can barely function and am wanting to discontinue. Must I taper or can I just go cold turkey? I REEELY want this drug out of my system asap. Anyone with experience with this??
I discontinued taking geodon approximately 2 yrs. ago. At the time of withdrawal I started experience pain and pressure in my bladder. It has been approximately 2 yrs since I've taken geodon and the pain continues. Has anyone else experienced this? And better yet found a cure?
