Hi everyone, has anyone had experiences of the withdrawal symptoms when coming off sertraline please?

Hi, I did, many years ago.
Had been on sertraline for about 10 years. Experienced every single withdrawal symptom under the sun. Very scary timessad brain zaps, uncontrollable movements, cold sweats, feeling very cold and shivering in the middle of the summer, you name it I had it. It was a long time ago but I'll never forget it.
And I came off it gradually, over a 2-3 month period.
It was a nightmare for me but I know most people come off them with barely no symptoms. With me it might have been the fact that I had been on them for so many years.
