dizziness, sleeping problems. If any of these Zoloft withdrawal symptoms occur is better to contact the doctor although they may improve with time without treatment. However, the doctor will decide if the patient will take a lower dose or will stop using it. In most reported cases Zoloft withdrawal symptoms can be reduced if the patient weaned off it over three weeks.
