  • Most antidepressants require a person to wean off of them, I think Zoloft is one of those meds. Quiting it cold turkey can cause some side effects, please call your doc and talk to him/her about it and see if you should taper off. It takes about a month for it to get into your system properly and may take awhile to get back out of the system too. Call your doctor and discuss how you are feeling just to make sure.
