You're tapering off too quickly. I also don't understand why you say your psychiatrist didn't say much to help -- is your tapering schedule one offered by your doctor, because it sounds like you've made up your schedule yourself, so if you're tapering off a drug and your doc knows it and says nothing, either you aren't communicating or you really don't have a doctor as this is why you have a psychiatrist. You are suffering some pretty common withdrawal symptoms, and Zoloft is a drug that most people get some sort of withdrawal from when they stop taking it. For most it passes in a couple of weeks, but in your case, if it's happening as you taper off on such small amounts, you're getting a stronger effect, or at least that's how it sounds. So slow it down -- let your body get used to the lower dose before you drop down, and keep doing that as long as it takes. And if what you say is correct here, you really really need a different psychiatrist.
It sounds as if you got no relief from the Zoloft, so is your doc suggesting another at some point? I don't know anything about switching from Z, but if you had a problem before you started Z won't you have it again when you go off Z?
So my symptoms have been feeling like they are worsening.
Been Feeling Very Off!!!
Weird sensations in head, bad concentration,
Dizziness, confusion, fatigue Cant think/slow thinking,
Emotionless zombie/don't feel anything /don't feel,
no arousal, thinking about anything sexual bores or grosses me,
sleep a lot, hot & sweaty,

I talked with my psych today and I have an appointment on August 1st. I told her my issues and she thinks it's my anxiety acting up since I'm on a lower dose which is 75mg a day.
She told me to reduce it to 50mg a day until I see her,
But since it has been so hard for me I took 62.5mg starting today.
Work has been hard to get through and i don't feel like doing much other than sleeping or laying in my bed.
Is there any other options out there that I should try?
