Social Anxiety

31 posts in this topic

I was diagnosed with social anxiety yesterday, but I've know that I've had it for a long time now. My doctor wants me to try Paxil CR, but I can't seem to get a difinitive answer as to whether or not it's safe. I've seen the regular formulation of Paxil on the gluten free drug lists, but not the CR version. I called GlaxoSmithKline and their response was that while they don't believe that any ingredients contain gluten, they can't confirm that is the case for any of the ingredients that are coming from an outside supplier. Does anyone know for sure? This disease is frustrating enough.....finding things to help you shouldn't be. :(

Calisherbear, you can have your pharmacist call their source for the medication directly and confirm that their formulation is gluten-free and if not, have them use one that is. Pharmacists are a great resource in situations like this.

Good luck to you!

YankeeDB,

I tried that yesterday when I picked the prescription up, and my pharmacist was less than helpful. He couldn't find the phone number and then told me to just call Glaxo myself. The person I talked to at Glaxo this morning was a pharmacist, but still couldn't give me a straight answer. I guess besides figuring out whether or not this drug is safe, I also need to find a more knowledgable pharmacist. UGH!!

Linda,

I'm glad to hear that constipation is a sign of celiac, I was beging to think my doctor was wrong in diagnosing me because everthing I've read on this site for the past 3 weeks was about people having severe diarrhea & like you I can't go.

If any body has any helpful list of what I can & can't eat I'd appreciate it, I'm only 3 weeks into this & still don't have much of a clue.

Thanks,

Wanda

I find that it is much easier to just call the pharmaceutical company myself. That way I know exactly what the person on the other end says. I also think that pharmacies are very busy places, and I am sure they have enough problems to deal with. I call on my own....but do always ask for the company name that produced my drug.

My favorite pharmacy is small and very busy. I make sure that I am always friendly, and respect their posted break times. Whenever I have a question, I call and leave a message that includes my name, phone number, and exactly what the question is. The pharmacist then has time to look up the answer, and calls me back when he has time. Because I make sure to stay on excellent terms with everyone in the drugstore, I have never had to wait more than 24 hours for an answer.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
