hi guys. I'm on sertraline but currently stopped. it's been about a week. and i don't know if this is a symptom of the withdrawals or not but i feel weird. not exactly dizzy but it feels like if i move my head it feels sort of like a very minor buzz. I don't know how else to describe it. is this normal for withdrawals?

      I had that when I started medication so assume it’s the same when stopping as well (I haven’t gone through that part yet)

      Yes that's definitely a withdrawal symptom I get them anytime I've been off of it for at least 4 days. They're called brain zaps and it'll get worse before it gets better

      yeah that's withdrawal symptoms, i get those if i accidentally skipped a dose. the best way to do it is to slowly come off it, with the help of your care provider.
