This may be a little TMI

I am stopping taking my antidepressants (50 mg of Zoloft) today. I am going on vacation to Hawaii with my fiance in 6 days. I havent seen him in 3 months and im rreealllyyy horny lol.
I am stopping the pills because i cannot orgasm on them. How long does it take for my body not to be dependant on them??
I am not depressed anymore anyways. i was depressed because my fiance left me, and now hes back. There is nothing to be depressed about. Will i be fine by the end of the 6 days? I WANT TO BE NORMAL!!!

  • I used to be on zoloft and my doc told me not to one day out of the blue stop. She told me to take half doses and then you can stop after a few days. You have to come down slow off of that. Talk to your doc they can explain it better. Your doc may have a diff opinion.

  • You cant just stop takin them. You have to gradually take small doses until you are down to 0 pills. Talk to your doc first.

  • No you cannot go off of any antidepressant cold turkey!!! Doing so will throw your brain chemistry all outta wack! I am on same med, same dose. At one point I decided I was fine and didn't need the meds anymore so I just stopped taking them. It was hellish. I was dizzy~fall over dizzy! I passed out if I stood up too quick. It was hard to concentrate. And my libido problems lasted for a while longer too. I just felt, well, wonky. It's hard to explain. Just as you didn't feel the effects of the Zoloft immediately, the effects won't just go away immediately either. It takes a few weeks~even if you just stop cold.  Sorry to say, you're probably just gonna have to enjoy the emotional side of sex for a while :)

  • This is really something you should discuss with your therapist, not a bunch of strangers.
