Doctor: Hello,Thanks for choosing “Ask The Doctor” for posting your query.It depends on what dosage you are on at present. Mostly one has to reduce the dose of the zoloft every 3 days until it comes to 25 mg where it can be abruptly withdrawn.Do discuss your tapering plans with your treating doctor.Hope I am able to answer your concerns.Wish you good health!
