Social Anxiety

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.

    • these sound like celiac reactions  yes   ... basically avoid anything that causes the reaction   always and find your self a great natural practitioner and   rebuild  your body .. Rest vitamins digestive enzymes and very strict diet  Good Luck
    • Hey guys im from the UK and this site is really helpful for me. I've been diagnosed with Coeliac disease (uk spelling) for 5 years now and I slowly became dairy intolerant, which makes sense and I live with this now... but now alcohol has turned on me.  I don't drink often and I don't drink a lot (I used to in my uni years) but the reaction the next day (or same night) is horrific.  I wondered if anyone else had this problem.  I start with sweats and dizziness , then the stomach cramps cause chronic diarrhoea ... I then start to vomit until my body is empty .... this isn't the bad part. After my body is empty I go into a fit like state and cannot move walk talk or anything... the cold sweats start but I'm burning up. The stomach spasms are awful, I have to lie in bed flat with cold wet towels on my head and belly. I cannot speak or move for hours and feel so weak and unstable ..: this lasts all day and I can't eat or drink anything but I don't feel myself for three or four days. I avoid drinking but sometimes it's nice to go out and have some... am I alcohol intolerant??!! Does anyone else have this!?  I obviously stick to gluten free drinks and have a very strict diet! Im a severe case!  Thankyoy  steph 
    • I'm going to contact my primary Dr and see what his take is on this.  I know I can't wait another 4 weeks to go to my gastroenterologist.  Today marks day 23 of diarrhea.  Since switching back to Imodium it has gotten worse.  I think that the other 2 medications, even though I couldn't tolerate them and they didn't stop the diarrhea, at least slowed it down a little.  If my primary has no clue, then I am definitely contacting U of C.  The only thing stopping me is that they are out of network for my insurance plan so it would be more costly. 
    • Spring is cherry blossom season, which means that actual cherries are still far enough off that we'll have to leave their deliciousness ahead, and turn to their canned cousins for this recipe. Turns out, that's not a bad thing. Canned cherries make a tasty cornerstone to this super quick, super-easy no-bake cheesecake. Topped with lovely cherries, this no-bake cheesecake is a contender. Enjoy! View the full article
