Discontinuing Zoloft - Depression or Bipolar Tendencies?

I take 100mg of Zoloft a day and have been for 4 years now. I spoke with my doctor about cutting down the dosage or the possibility of discontinuing the medication. He told me that because he saw "bipolar tendencies" in my chart he would not recommend stopping the medication. This is the 1st time a doctor... show more I take 100mg of Zoloft a day and have been for 4 years now.

He told me that because he saw "bipolar tendencies" in my chart he would not recommend stopping the medication. This is the 1st time a doctor has ever said something like this to me (I have seen him for 1 year every 4 months). I'm not sure what to think about this award exchange. My mental health is extremely important to me and I don't want to make a bad/hasty decision. I do not have insurance, so any suggestion that would involve more medical bills will not be helpful to me.
Thanks for you time!
