Hi there,

Could someone tell me why it says I have only made 1 post in my info on the side bar and inside my profile, when I know I've made more, i.e. Nov 16, 2009 - weaning off of zoloft...", which I can find when I search for it - proof. Thank you. (:

Can you post a link to that previous post? I looked for it and could not find it. Your post count now registers "2". :) You can find your posts by clicking on your login name, click settings if necessary, and then click on Find my Posts. I googled the subject matter you claimed you posted on and did not find your post. Sorry. Perhaps you can find it for us.

Hi, Thank you for your quick response. I'm not sure how to link to it, so I cut and pasted it, as follows: But to find it, go to Coping under Forums, then type in "Zoloft" and it will come up. Tx.

Hi Everyone:

I've been visiting this site for about a year now and just joined. I've really appreciated the great information and personal stories I've found here. I've found much support here. I've been gluten free for a year and two months.

Nearly immediately after I stopped the gluten, I felt better. I've always had stomachaches, which I believe later led to anxiety and depression- emotional problems. Beginning in my twenties I saw gastroenterologists, naturopaths, had colonics, psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy and group therapy, all in hopes of getting to bottom of constant pain. Figured it had to do with issues not dealt with around being anorexic at twelve. I believe now that being (unknowingly) gluten intolerant had a lot to do with the beginning of the eating disorder. I've been on the macrobiotic diet and the yeast-free diet. As far back as I can recall I had stomach issues, mostly not being able to "go" and I've been on Zoloft 250mg at its highest, for the past 17 years and I'm 44.

If you're still with me here, here is the point: I have now realized that the Zoloft was not the solution to my stomachaches (because it did help for awhile, but at increasing doses) afterall, and that perhaps the depression was a result of the stomaches, not the stomache problems a part of the depression, so I've been tapering off the Zoloft since April, slowly. I'm down from 250mg to 125mg and felt fine and at times great, up until this last week. It seemswhen I take a step down in dosage (now 125mg to 100mg), which I do every month and a half , I get terrible side effects that are so similar to getting glutened, that it is arguable what's what. I get the same nausea, worse aches and pains especially in my neck and shoulders, headache, gastrointestinal issues- like guts have slowed down...I could go on.

I know how it is to feel well and not contaminated by gluten; I had twenty-three good days in a row last month for the first time, ever and before that it was nine days. I don't feel so well these last five days and I think it's the tapering of the medicine because I don't believe I've been glutened, though I worry about the packaged potato salad (Recers or Reecers or Reesers) and the Old Dutch Creamy Dill Pickle chips I ate two days ago. It is making me crazy not knowing what to blame. I think it's the drug reduction.

Mostly, I guess I wanted to say hi and here's :)my story to date.

Thanks.

Okay, but what was the topic title that you were responding to? Incidentally, if you want to learn how to post the url for this in your post, just bring the post up on your screen, highlight the url - the thing at the top which starts out with http: and then press edit and copy. Return to your post that you are posting in and click edit, and then paste in the body of your post. Hope this helps :)

Gotcha,

Here it is. I think I've figured out the problem- somehow I've signed up once in '08 and again in '09. I recalled my first attempt was unsuccessful. If this can't be helped, that's okay. Tx.
