How to find just about anything on this site

Recommended Posts

Altostrata

Often, you can find topics of interest using site Search in the upper right of each page.

 

But, sometimes site Search won't work.

 

Site search does not recognize 3-letter words or acronyms

However, this search system does not recognize 3-letter words or acronyms. This is a common flaw in search systems bundled with forum software. I can't fix it.

 

This makes it particularly difficult to find supplements or vitamins such as SAM-e, 5-HTP, or B12.

 

Try synonyms or longer words that mean the same thing

I try to provide synonyms so these kinds of things can be found in site search. For example, you'd be able to find SAM-e or 5-HTP by looking for their compound names: S-Adenosyl methionine, 5-hydroxytryptophan, or cobalamin.

 

Use Google!!!

Google has a way to search this site, or any site. You can do this even if you're not a member of SurvivingAntidepressants.org.

 

Open Google search and in the search box type this:

 

site:survivingantidepressants.org 5-HTP

 

and you will get all the references to 5-HTP on this site.

 

You can substitute any word or terms for the term in red (or any site for the URL in blue -- no space between site: and the URL).

 

Added: Site Advanced Search

There is an advanced search capability that allows searches by username, forum, date, tag, etc. To open the advanced search page, click on the little white wheel next to the search field in the top right of the page:

Thanks Alto,

 

I have found that when I search Google info from SA pops up. I have had problems search this site for specific info. So Google does work.

I've noticed for a while now that when you enter the search terms <antidepressant withdrawal> on google, SA appears on the first page of results!

 

Sometimes as high as fourth on the list, but invariably on the first page. :)


I was "TryingToGetWell" (aka TTGW) on paxilprogress. I also was one of the original members here on Surviving Antidepressants

 

I had horrific and protracted withdrawal from paxil, but now am back to enjoying life with enthusiasm to the max, some residual physical symptoms continued but largely improve. The horror, severe derealization, anhedonia, akathisia, and so much more, are long over.

 

My signature is a temporary scribble from year 2013. I'll rewrite it when I can.

Original drug was sertraline/Zoloft, switched to Prozac in 2007.
Tapering from 5mls liquid prozac since Feb 2008, got down to 0.85ml 23/09/2012, reinstated back to 1ml(4mg) 07/11/2012, didn't appear to work, upped to 1.05ml 17/11/2012, back down to 1ml 12/12/2012 didn't work, up to 1.30ml 16/3/2013 didn't work, bumped up to 2ml (8mg) 4/4/2013 didn't work, in July 2013 I reinstated Sertraline (Zoloft) 50mg, feeling better now. 

A few months down the line I switched to 5ml liquid Prozac and tapered down to a compromise dose of 3ml liquid Prozac and have stayed there ever since, no withdrawals and no emotional blunting/loss of libido.

To find the topics marked with a sun ( ☼), enter this in Google search:

site:survivingantidepressants.org &#9788; 

This will return all the ☼ topics. (&#9788; is the Unicode for this symbol. It does not work in site search.)

 

The ☼ topics are people who have turned the corner and are on their roads to recovery.
