This can happen with Zoloft but the effect your are feeling may be from quiting cold turkey.  You probably should have weened yourself off of it but if you were on ly on it for 3 weeks, then it might not have gotten into your system full.  But the tingling will go away.  It can be the thought of it that is making it happen as well.  The mind plays amazing tricks.

I was on Zoloft for about 8 months and I loved it.  It really helped me with my anxiety and I had no side effects except tiredness at first.  When I first started, I took it in the morning and I was dragging all day.  Then, I switched to taking it before I went to bed and felt nothing and had great nights sleeping and felt great all the next day.

I really wished it would have worked for you but don't know if you want to give it another shot but I would say it takes a good month to get fully into the system and work.

Good luck
