How long have you been taking 100mg of Zoloft?

I have never taken Ativan but I have taken
Xanax in the past which is also in the same
family.  I took it at pretty high doses up to
5 months once before when I was in the
middle of a medicine change and once
my meds got straightened out I was able
to come off of it without any withdrawal
problems whatsoever.  Of course you
should check with you doctor.  By the way,
I am on 100 of Zoloft also (along with
nuerontin and abilify) and doing really
well on it.  I hope it works as well for you,

best wishes,
