I went to the doctors on Tuesday to talk about weaning myself off Sertraline. She explained that as I’m on such a low dose (50mg) anyway there aren’t any specific guidelines about coming off them. We decided that I would try and split the pills in half and start taking half a day.
I’ve been taking half for 3 days now and haven’t noticed any changes although I know it’s early days yet. The doctor advised that I do this for at least 2 weeks and then I can come off them completely. I’ll see how the next couple of weeks go and I’ll decide then if I feel ready to come off them.
I’ll do another post in a couple of weeks and update you on how I’m feeling and whether I’ve decided to stop altogether. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
