I had been on Escitalopram for 5 years when I developed intermittent nausea. After switching to Sertraline, I developed a very sore stomach and the nausea became constant and severe. A gastroscopy diagnosed stomach-wide, non-erosive gastritis (H.Pylori-negative). This has not improved in 6 weeks of taking a PPI and an H2 blocker but I have been continuing to take Sertraline.
I cannot find any articles about an increased risk of Gastritis from Sertraline (although there is some link with gastric bleeding), but it is listed as a rare side effect. Escitalopram has it listed as an uncommon side effect.
I wondered if anyone had found a correlation
between the taking of an SSRI and gastritis?
