Is it possible to do an extended/prolonged Zoloft taper that is longer than is typically needed to assist me in discontinuing SSRI use?

Yes it can be tapered slowly. You did not mention the specific regimen how you are supposed to lower the dose. You can share what your doctor has advised and one can decrease the deficit accordingly. Having said that there is bound to be some withdrawal effect. And the dose adduction should not be negligible.
