Sertraline - Stomach :)

Hi guys,

I just started a new SSRI about a week ago, called Sertraline (Greenstone which is gluten free).

When you start these meds do you get some mild loose stools? I seem to be having this and as a celiac I always wonder if this can be caused by the meds or by the celiac!

Thanks for any advice.

I'd say it is the med. Stomach upset/nausea/diarrhea are all common side effects at the beginning that should pass in a week or two. I had a day or two of mild nausea at the onset but luckily that was it. I'd give it a couple weeks and monitor how you feel and if you're too uncomfortable in any way, call your doctor. Sometimes (as was the case with me) they can tweak the dose starting low and gradually upping it.

Thanks as always, Patti!!!

I went from a few days at 25 and just started at 50 mg...so I think that it's just that increase that caused my little "change"...'cause I SWEAR I've steered clear of gluten since 2005 :). Except for unfortunate instances of CC!! :)

I also called Greenstone just to check on the status of the med. He said it's gluten free (although they don't do the certification so they can't say it's gluten-free Certified...but I'm assuming it's fine!

It is fine from a gluten standpoint. I agree it's the increase that caused your symptoms--they can appear/come back any time you change your dose. Hope the side effects pass quickly and it was nice to "see" you again Amanda :) Can you believe it's been since 2005?? For me too. Wow.

I was diagnosed with celiac disease nearly 5 mos. ago, and have been oily d free for a month or two.

I, too, have begun taking Sertraline / Zoloft, but since I was changing from another medication, I started at a higher dose to replace the dosage of the previous medicine. I have been on the Sertraline for a month.

Recently, I have been in a lot of back / neck pain and a lot of stress in getting my son off to college and going back to my teaching career after the summer off. Also, my curriculum has changed and I have 3 new course preparations this year.

Is it possible that the pain / stress could cause the oily d to recur? I am at my wit's end!!

    • Welcome!   It looks like your daughter is on her way to a celiac diagnosis.  Everyone is different, but I think you will have to wait until the biopsies come back from the Pathologist.  My endoscopy looked fine visually, yet my biopsies revealed intestinal damage (the villi are microscopic!)  The important thing at this point is that she must still be eating gluten daily for the endoscopy.  Once you get a diagnosis (sometimes labs lose stuff), then she can go gluten free.  Both an elevated TTG and EMA leans strongly to a celiac diagnosis and not something else. I would advise reading some books at your local library about celiac disease and read about it online too.  Read through the forum postings as they contain great tips.  We are here to help you with your questions.  
    • Welcome Tanya!   I know you must be suffering so!  Do you know if this is a celiac rash?  I do not have DH, but many of our members do.  Here is more information and possible treatment: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ https://www.verywell.com/dapsone-short-term-relief-562992

    • Thanks cyclinglady, that makes me feel more confident to give it a try.  I really need more fat in my diet and nuts would really help right now.  I'm going to try this. Yeah, there may be days when I don't want to work so hard to get nuts out of the shells! I really hope my body lets me eat some nuts and seeds so I'm going to try adding them in slowly. Thanks again.
