Am I Getting Better Yet?

OK, I took my last Sertraline (Zoloft) last Wednesday evening, July 4, 2012. So, it’s been three days or 72 hours, plus about 12 more to account for last evening until now. Is that enough? Have I noticed any improvement in my Lymphocytic Colitis, one of the two forms of Microscopic Colitis, which I have?

Not right away. My weight has dropped another 1.6 pounds from last Wednesday morning to this (Sunday) morning. But I think the D has gotten better! (How often have I said that?) This morning I had one D around 5:30am, then I was able to sleep til about 7:30am, after taking awhile to get back to sleep.

But the encouraging thing this morning is that after breakfast I had a near normal BM. Great!

Incidentally, ever since seeing Dr. Nolan on Friday, the 29th of June, I’ve been doing the Asacol (Mesalamine) and Questran (Cholestyramine) three times a day, up from two times.
