Newly Diagnosed: Horrible Mood Swings
Posted 24 February 2005 - 05:29 AM
I have a history of depression and anxiety (shocker) and am on several medications for this but nothing seems to be helping. I am seeing my gastroenterologist and psychiatrist next week (one of my medications is not gluten free) but I'm wondering if anyone else felt depressed, irritable and angry after going gluten-free. I also had a ski accident that landed me in six weeks of pohysical therpay and a lot of pain in December so it's been a heck of a two months. Just want some support, encouragement and advice. Thanks so much, Beverly

For me, gluten contamination causes serious depression. It is possible that going off gluten completely will ease your depression/anxiety issues. DO NOT QUIT TAKING YOUR MEDS COLD TURKEY!! I was on Lexapro, and it had to be weaned off gradually. Stopping suddenly causes serious problems, including inability to sleep and psychosis. Talk to your doctor. Even the tiny bit of gluten in one of your meds is enough to make you sick.
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you." Numbers 6:24-25
