My doctor prescribed Zoloft for me almost 6 years ago. He said it would help me rest and maybe not be in so much pain. I've been taking a pill and a half daily and I honestly don't see where it really has helped my pain situation at all. He has never discussed taking me off the medication or even bothered to inquire about it since I began taking it. I feel I've been taking it for too long. I quit taking the half pill in the morning, but continue with the 1 pill at bedtime. It's been 5 days and I've noticed I've been getting dull headaches for the past 2 days or so. Is this caused by the reduction in dosage? Has anyone else weaned themselves off? If so, is it difficult? What are some of the side effects of reducing the dosage??
