DOES ANYONE EXPERIENCE A SICK STOMACH EVERY MORNING BUT THEN IT GETS BETTER AS THE DAY GOES ON? ANYTHING THAT YOU DO THAT HELPS? I CUT CAFFEINE OUT OF MY DIET AND HAVE BEEN TRYING TO EAT HEALTHIER. IS IT STREE-RELATED DO YOU THINK? I HAVE THOUGHT about TAKING IMMODIUM BEFORE I GO TO BED. I TOOK PEPTO BISMOL LAST NIGHT BEFORE BED ANS WOKE WITH DIARRHEA about 4 EPISODES AND THEN I WAS FINE. I DON'T THINK THAT HELPED. I TAKE 1 DA DAILY, ACIPHEX 20MG, AND ZOLOFT 50MG DAILY. I AM JUST SO FRUSTRATED! THANKS!

Hi,
You must be upset... you put your post in all caps. :)

What time is your last meal before you go to bed? or should I say, how many hours before bed is your last meal? This could make a difference. Also what can make a difference is the time you take your other medications. I'm not saying morning or evening is better because its different for everyone but you could play around with the times to see if it makes a difference. Side effects of PPI's and Zoloft include changes in bowel habits, more commonly diarrhea. I would definitely talk to your doc about your concerns.

Take Care

mine is always worst in the morning, it has gotten better though--i started making my lunch my "bigger" meal. (my portions have become significantly smaller). i have noticed i have fewer "episodes" now--unless i am nervous or stressed. but because of it my morning routine is 3-4 hours long to account for toilet trips... i think i am down to 3 hours...
i cut out caffeine as well--i noticed no bowel change, i am sure there is one though...
i am not on the meds you are on, though i am getting DA (a free sample).
i do understand where you are coming from though, i do hope you have some better mornings soon.

what would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

Hi Sports girl,

   Do you think it has anything to do with the Zoloft?  Do you take any vitamins?  I've found that the B vitamins (even though we really need them) really nauseate me.......and it doesn't happen until hours later.  This also happens with my son and Vitamin C.

   And I agree.......you should quit eating at least 4 hours before bedtime. 

  P.S.  Could you be pregnant??  ;)     What do you eat after you get up in the morning?  Maybe what some pregnant women eat might help.......like crackers or popcorn.

HEY! I KNOW I AM NOT PREGNANT. I AM NOT TAKING ANY VITAMINS. I HAVE BEEN STOPPING EATING about 3 HOURS BEFORE I GO TO BED AND HAVE CUT OUT CAFFEINE. I DO SEE SOME OF A DIFFERENCE. I HAVE NOT HAD AN ATTACK SINCE I HAVE BEEN ON DA FOR about THREE WEEKS ALMOST NOW. ALSO, I HAVE STOPPED EATING ANY FRIED FOODS(ESPECIALLY FAST FOOD) SO WE WILL HAVE TO SEE. I DO FEEL VERY YUCKY THOUGH AT THAT TIME OF THE MONTH WHICH IS TYPICAL FOR MOST OF US.

I'm so glad to hear you are having good results!! I'm starting back up on the DA today as well because it was really helping me (when I remembered to take it... I think I need to just go ahead and buy one of those pill cases)... Fried foods, yes I cut those out too and it made a world of difference to me. Since I have cut out those fried foods, I actually feel a lot better otherwise too, not just in the GI area.

My daughter usually gets her attacks at night & early morning. Doesn't really complain of nausea. The DR did tell me that stress can bring on this attacks too. I find it true because if she has a concert or big test, she will have a attack. As for Zoloft, I know some one that takes this & it could cause nausea & D. I don't know how long you were taking it but maybe you can ask your DR. Good luck.

Hey sports, glad to read you are feeling better.  Keep on the D.A. and eating healthy.  I cut out all fast food except for Togo's & Subway and it has helped me tremendously.  Hopefully you will continue to feel better....

I hear you about that time of the month.  What a nightmare it is to be a woman.  We should be able to take the whole week off of work.  tongue

Dbab, I thought about getting myself one of those pill boxes.  LOL  I would need the really big one that would require a monster purse to carry it in.  No offense to anyone... But I feel too young to have a pill box.  My grandmother doesn't even have one.
