Experts in Prescription Drug Withdrawal
We offer a unique and natural approach for Zoloft withdrawal
ZOLOFT (Sertraline) is an antidepressant in a group of drugs called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) that exerts the majority of its action on Serotonin, with minimal effects on Norepinephrine and Dopamine.
Serotonin influences the cardiovascular, renal, immune and gastrointestinal systems due to its effect on the contraction of smooth muscles, and is essential to regulate body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure and the sympathetic nervous system. The alteration of Serotonin by Zoloft explains the high rate of gut and cardiovascular related side effects. Patients on Zoloft have much higher rates of sexual dysfunction due to its effect on Serotonin versus other antidepressants, but lower rates of cognitive decline from its secondary effect on Dopamine. In pregnant women, higher rates of birth defects have been associated with Zoloft due to significant concentrations being present in fetal blood.
Zoloft was approved and entered the market in 1991 and by 2006 Zoloft became the most prescribed antidepressant on the United States retail market.
Because SSRI’s influence numerous systems of the body and brain, stopping Zoloft abruptly can cause a discontinuation syndrome. 60% of Zoloft patients were found to experience Zoloft withdrawal symptoms. Gradual Zoloft dose reduction (tapering), combined with specific nutritional support is recommended to help ease the symptoms during the Zoloft withdrawal process

What is Zoloft?(Sertraline, Lustral, Serlain)
Zoloft (Sertraline) is a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor antidepressant that was introduced to the market in 1991. During the drug trials 40% of participants dropped out, yet the Psychopharmacological Drugs Advisory Committee recommended the approval of Zoloft. The Director of the FDA Division of Neuropharmacological Drug Products, Paul Leber, noted that granting approval was a “tough decision” since the effect on outpatients with depression was “modest to minimal”. In 1999 Zoloft came under scrutiny when it was discovered that Eric Harris (Columbine High School shooter) had been taking the drug prior to switching to Luvox. The patent expired in 2006 and Luvox is now available in generic form.
Zoloft Withdrawal can cause a host of disabling symptoms including brain zaps and worsening depression. A slow titration is critical to ease Zoloft Withdrawal.
