    Yes I have taken Zoloft and also felt suicidal while on it. There should be a warning on the Zoloft that says something along the lines of "Can cause suicidal thoughts, especially if under the age of 24". It's a side affect of the drug. Instead of quitting cold turkey, you should ask your doctor how to slowly get off the pills. That's the best way to avoid withdrawals.
