Zoloft Addiction – Discontinuation Syndrome has Serious Withdrawal Symptoms

Although developing a physical Zoloft addiction is not possible, SSRI Withdrawal Syndrome, a consequence of discontinuing selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor antidepressants, has some very serious side effects. These include severe anxiety, agitation, depression, insomnia, fatigue, headaches, psychosis and the most serious symptom, drug-induced mania leading to suicide.

Therefore, tracking Zoloft use and its negative side effects is essential. Powerful new technology arms addictions specialists with statistics that can assist in these efforts.
