Truvia - sweetnener


Recommended Posts

So I recently lost some weight, I equate it to using truvia instead of sugar, it's a sugar alcohol but it also has stevia in it anyway I use it in my iced tea that I make at home- well I noticed each time I drink a glass I get a lot of anxiety, I initially thought it was the caffeine in the tea causing it, but coffee and pop do not cause the same reaction, well I started digging and I found this - and I just wanted to share this with everyone else - and warn people about stevia -- this is pretty scary imo - it causes a reduction in dopamine and serotonin, like it can cross the blood brain barrier and directly affect the areas of the brain we are trying to heal!!! 





*Currently at 8.2-8.5 mg of my 10mg pill of Paxil (they actually weigh 12.5mg) 

january 2023 I began reducing my med again. I was a 9mg weight for years, I went to 8.9 in January, went to 8.6mg in February, and in March 2023 I went down to 8.5-8.2 mg ( my scale varies, so I stick within that .3 range because of that) 

*No other supplements or vitamins 

*Taper schedule in the pdf
