    Back on sertraline after stomach episodes

    So after 4 months of being off anti depressants sadly Iím now back on them :(, Iíve had recurring stomach pains bouts of constipation and diarrhoea and convinced myself I had crohns.

    Tests have ruled that out along with the doctor saying there is no doubt in his mind itís crohns so surely I should be happy.

    So sadly I have to go back on the tabs to try and get over this, I feel like a failure

    Donít feel like a failure. Feel like youíre doing something positive to combat this illness of health anxiety. I have been on Lexapro, then off, then on again . And finally realized i am miserable trying to fix it myself. I need the medication.

    Re: Back on sertraline after stomach episodes

    I'm on 8 prescription medications due to physical issues. I took an SSRI during therapy for depression after the illnesses I suffered. I don't feel like a failure. What's wrong with taking a medication to address mental health issues? Good for you for taking steps to address the real illness.

    One more thing. I spoke to my doctor about all the meds I take and my displeasure with doing so. He said "just be thankful we live in a time where we have access to medications to address the challenges we face". He's right. 100 years ago, people died from diseases that are now curable/treatable or eradicated and the mentally ill were on their own and some were put in institutions.
