Hi guys

 

Just wondered if anyone else has experienced this. About 6 years ago I started to get red rings around my body mailto legs and arms. Thought ring worm at time and got them tested. It was granuloma annulare. Doctor said there were no evidence why get these and how to cure them. More came up. As you know I came off sertraline nearing 12 months and going through I think wd waves windows but what I have noticed is the rings disappearing very slowly. 6 of them gone completely. Not sure whether this a coincidence or related to coming off tablets. Wish waves would go as going through a terrible one today. Any advice or anyone else had similar? X

May 2003 prozac for six months after having first child. Came off taper slow. No withdrawals.

December 2009 10mg citalopram after second child.

January 2010 up to 20mg kinda helped. Not much.

July 2010 taper off within a month.

Side affects of tiredness tears. Doctor said I depressed still.

Oct 2010 Went back doctor they put me on sertraline 20mg and went to cbt therapy. Doctor kept upping it as wasn't feeling better to 200mg.

December 2014 felt better started to reduce by 4 tablets to 3 then to 2 then 1 and half. Four five weeks gap between. Stopped at 25mg in April 2015.7 months no meds.

There are a couple of comments on it. All to do with the gut I think and whatever zoloft did as also my weight has come down too by a stone. Maybe coincidence. Let's hope anxiety negative thoughts disappear soon too as 11 months still waves windows big waves too. X
