There are many ways to do a site search.  Click on the magnifying glass on the upper right section of the screen.  It will take you to a page with 2 tabs at the top: content search, and member search.  The following links explain how to do each type of search.  

 

Search for a Particular Symptom

See What Other People's Experience with a Drug Has Been

Find Any Content by a Particular Member

See How People Have Recovered From a Particular Symptom

 

The other option is to do a search using a search engine.  This link explains how to do that:

To do a search for a particular symptom:

 

  • The system defaults to the “Content Search” tab
  • Type in the symptom in the top where it says “Search Term”
  • Under Content Type, select “Topics” Now you will see under this a Forums menu.  Select “Symptoms and Self-care” and also “Tapering” I often see discussion of symptoms in the tapering forum.
  • Under “Find results in…”, Select “Content titles only”
  • Tap search content

 

You may have to try different versions and spellings of the symptom.  For example, “neuro-emotions”, “neuro emotions”, “neuroemotions”.

 

If you are searching for a phrase, after you hit enter, you will see under “Didn’t find what you were looking for?  Try searching for: the phrase “search phrase”.  Select this option.

 

If you don’t get good results with the above search, you can try searching all content.  To do that, follow the instructions above, but under “Find results in…”, select “Content titles and body”

See what other people’s experience with a drug has been:

  • The system defaults to the “Content Search” tab
  • Type in the drug name in the top where it says “Search Term”. I would start with the brand name, then later do the generic name.  You can do a google search to find brand and generic drug names. I suggest you select the “search” by tags” feature under “Content Search” tab.
  • Under Content Type, select “Topics” Now you will see under this a Forums menu.  Select “Introductions and Updates”.  You could also select “Success Stories”.
  • Under “Find results in…”, Select “Content titles only”
  • Tap search content

 

If you don’t get good results with the above search, you can try searching titles and body.  To do that, follow the instructions above, but under “Find results in…”, select “Content titles and body”

Find Any Content by a Particular Member:   

  • Select the “Member Search” tab, and type in their name in the search bar at the top.
  • You probably don’t need to worry about selecting any of the search options, since each person is assigned a unique member name.
  • You can just type a few letters of their name, and it will come up with all names containing this letter combination. For example, if I type in “Gigi”, it comes up with 8 entries for members whose name begins with these characters.
  • Select “Search Members” under their name.
  • You will see a box with their name, and under it “Find Content” and “Follow Member”.  Select “Find Content”, and it will show their activity by date and thread name.
