Antidepressants And Diarrhea

Hello,

I visited with my doctor the other day about some meds that I have taken for depression. Each anti depressant is different and cause different side effects, but many of them can cause diarrhea. I have been diagnosed just recently with clinical depression. Last year I was taking Lexapro and I was having bad diarrhea attacks (was not totally gluten free either). In discussing all of this with my doctor she states that the anti depressant can cause many problems with the digestive tract. So this is also something to think about if any of you are on some kind of anti depressant medication. I am currently taking Remeron and have had better days.

I tried Remeron when it first came out to help with SAD (during gloomy Seattle winters). I loved the antihistamine side effect but couldn't take constant sleepiness from that drug. When I told my doc "not Remeron", he told me that he'd read studies about liver damage side effects. Of course the manufacturers will discount any of those side effects as 'rarely occurring' to get FDA approval. Then I tried Serzone which numbed my passion for life even on sunny day. :o Since I went off all meds, I've confronted the issues which made me feel sad and put in full spectrum lights (and a 'Sunray' table top model) to cope with Seasonal Affective Disorder. Although antidepressants numbed the intensity of my emotions, confronting and changing the beliefs and attitudes which influenced my feelings did so much more to help me overcome sadness from unresolved grief, daily frustration and stresses. I believe antidepressants are a great adjunct to 'talking' therapy to cope with depression, but too many docs, who have no time to listen to their patients' problems, prescribe drugs without considering side effects. Having long undiagnosed celiac disease symptoms, which many doctors ignore or discount, is depressing enough, without taking antidepressants which increase uncomfortable abdominal symptoms.

    • I asked for their two products yesterday,onion and garlic.Onion powder's package doesnt have starch or wheat on ingredient list but garlic powder has corn starch . I dont have any intolerance to corn by the way. They told me they add starch to two of their products so they are not gluten free. I dont understand why they would put on corn starch on list if it contains wheat starch.I sent another mail to them.  I had nausea last night and this morning but im not sure if it is because of powder or something else.  
    • Well endoscopy done this morning. Said that all looked normal no sign of celiac seen normal duodenal cap and preserved villi. but need to wait for biopsies. Report stated  mild antral gastritis with erythema found  but non specific. Seems like they took a lot of Biopsies. Report stated they took them from lower 3rd and middle 3rd of oesophagus,  the antrum of stomach and area in bulb and 1st,2nd and 3rd part of duodenum. So will wait and see two other children in recovery with us had visible damage on their scope so were told they have celiac disease. Dr review clinic not for two weeks. Thanks for everyone for listening we just want some answers now for her increasing fatigue. But maybe it's not celiac after all.     
    • Look at carreggenan. I am a super sensitive Celiac and have the same auto immune reaction to anything made with seaweed, “the wheat of the sea”, such as MSG, carrageenan, agar and sodium alginate. The food industry is putting it in everything, even so called Misbranded gluten free foods. Even some coconut milk brands now are using it as are nut milks. It is a cheap emulsifier, so we do not have to shake things up! How about shaking up my whole body from it! You may have an iron defiency anemia not being treated or tested. Cookbook doctors treat numbers not patients clinical presentation. I have fired five doctors in eight years for stupidity and dangerous lack of clinical acumen which could have killed me. Do not be afraid to ask questions and confront doctors, you are after all the customer paying for their services.  Eat clean, meaning preparing your own foods. Stay out of restaurants! Gluten free is a joke in most restaurants if you are a celiac. And will cost you weeks of illness. Hang in there. Make bone broth, it has super vitamins and minerals and loaded with pre and probiotics. Go to Dr. Axe’s site. I only do chicken made with feet. I am allergic to beef since being bitten by a deer tick in 2011 and getting Chronic Lyme disease. The chicken feet bone broth is also loaded with calcium and is yummy. Takes a little work, but is well worth it. 😊  
    • Go to the coping section & pinned at the top is the Newbie 101 which will tell you how to prevent cc. Sorry, that's all I have for tonight as it's been a long, long day for me & I am more than ready to turn in. I'll respond further tomorrow. I'm sooooooooo glad to hear you finally have an answer!!!!!
