Body BasicsEducationProtocols and DetoxSexual HealthSupplements The Birth Control Pill risks and benefits Being a woman, the question of Birth Control becomes one of the most controversial topics that is all pervasive in dealing with not only our sexual health but also our physical and emotional health. Having been prescribed birth control at the age of 15 years old, I had struggled with the side effects for 9 years before I made the BIG decision to go off of it.
So grateful for having found this website, thanks to all of you for sharing your stories in so much detail! I need some advice. I have tapered off 50 mg in 2. At first I felt great. But when day 5 hit I started to become extremely tired, dizzy, nauseous and have had flu-like symptoms.
On top of that I feel lots of emotions mostly anger and sadness though and I cry a lot which is kind of a relief but not always handy if you are at work. Now I have been off Zoloft for 10 days and I have put on 4 kilos already! I lost weight on Zoloft but now I am gaining weight and I feel so heavy and somehow my body feels disgusting.
I think my digestive system is not working properly and have been taking lots of probiotics. Anyone who also gained weight when they quit? What can you recommend me? Does it continue or will it all straighten out eventually?
Hang in there you sweet souls, glad that I shared. Renee Reply Link Jacque September 30,9: I am suffering insomnia horribly and am lucky to get four hours of sleep a night. The mind fog is still in a daily basis, and the racing heart is a struggle to get a hold of.
I fear this is because of the racing heartbeats from the anxiety. I am on day 65 from taking my last sertraline pill and quit taking my Prozac in April. Please I ask you to reply if you are having similar symptoms or even success stories to give me some hope.
Reply Link Melissa October 2, Deep breathing is so helpful. Drink some chamomile tea.
Rub lavender oil on you or even just put it into your diffuser and breathe in deeply to let it calm you. I just went back onto my anti-anxiety meds which are called Vistaril. I take 50mg a day and I might up it to 25 in the morning and 50 at night because I still have troubles sleeping on just the 25 at nighttime.
You are never alone in this and we are took this drug thinking it would help when it just made it worse. You wont die from the way you are feeling, just get out and do more things when you have the chance.
Once you start losing hope, you start losing the grasp on reality and yourself.

Keep up the fight, it does get better in time. Reply Link Amanda September 27,8: I was basically a zombie spending half if not all day in bed with no quality of life. I have been on Sertraline mgms for the past 17 years and have developed diabetes, high eye pressure, cataracts and heart disease during this period.
I have managed to cease this drug twice but each time after 2 months have descended into a very deep suicidal depression. After having researched Sertraline recently have discovered it can exacerbate and cause diabetes, high eye pressure and cataracts and both lithium and Sertraline can cause heart problems.
Being understandably worried about these findings I decided to reduce from mgms to mgms about a week ago experiencing dizziness and nausea culminating yesterday with dizziness, balance problems, non-stop vomiting and diarrhea for several hours.
Feeling so ill with no support I grabbed a mgm tablet and promptly vomited again 15 minutes later which continued and I could not leave my bed. I have just consulted a psychologist who wants to see me weekly for now and hoping this will help all round.
I am 64 and not working due to ill health so hoping I can successfully withdraw albeit slowly from now on as I can stay in bed if necessary now.
I am very disappointed in the medical profession not being on the ball with side effects and interactions with this particular drug and for not monitoring me and just continually writing up scripts. I would not recommend anybody starting it as I think it is very toxic.Turnitin provides instructors with the tools to prevent plagiarism, engage students in the writing process, and provide personalized feedback.
