Our expert says:
This sounds like an odd dosage and use of Zoloft. I wonder to what extent your experience of any benefits AND of problems on withdrawal are primarily psychological rather than chemical ? You certainly should have to stay on this particular drug forever. If you genuinely have properly diagnosed repeated episodes of major Depression, you may need to stay lopng-term on AN antidepressant, but not necessarily that particular one.
CBT is a great idea for anxiety and for depression, and doesn't cause side-effects or withdrawal problems.
