Histamine Intolerance: can be associated with folks getting psych dx http://wp.me/p5nnb-9tW


Recommended Posts

From Beyond Meds today:

Since discovering my histamine intolerance issues my journey of healing from the psychiatric drug iatrogenesis has taken many positive and interesting turns. As I’ve written about many times in various ways, I’ve learned that as holistic beings everything matters. This includes what we eat and everything we put in and on our bodies. I found out that I need to be very careful of my histamine intake. It’s a LARGE piece of my healing puzzle. It is not the only piece. I want to reiterate that. There are many pieces, but without this one I was missing a large and important part. I’ve recently written about the autonomic nervous system dysfunction too. Autonomic nervous system dysfunction actually creates and/or exacerbates many sorts of hypersensitivities. For me this included the histamine issue is a very big way. For this reason I think that for those of us with protracted withdrawal issues, the autonomic system dysfunction is even more primary. 


To be clear, without tending to the histamine issue it would be impossible to get to the bottom of the autonomic nervous system issues, so in that regard all things are equal. Histamine intolerance and understanding it is of vital importance for those of us affected.

histamine intolerance...I am not sure this is what I had as the things that block histamine were they ones that I could not stand... may help others tho... have not checked it that well as i just found it...



Had a car accident in 85
Codeine was the pain med when I was release from hosp continuous use till 89
Given PROZAC by a specialist to help with nerve pain in my leg 89-90 not sure which year
Was not told a thing about it being a psych med thought it was a pain killer no info about psych side effects I went nuts had hallucinations. As I had a head injury and was diagnosed with a concussion in 85 I was sent to a head injury clinic in 1990 five years after the accident. I don't think they knew I had been on prozac I did not think it a big deal and never did finish the bottle of pills. I had tests of course lots of them. Was put into a pain clinic and given amitriptyline which stopped the withdrawal but had many side effects. But I could sleep something I had not done in a very long time the pain lessened. My mother got cancer in 94 they switched my meds to Zoloft to help deal with this pressure as I was her main care giver she died in 96. I stopped zoloft in 96 had withdrawal was put on paxil went nutty quit it ct put on resperidol quit it ct had withdrawal was put on Effexor... 2years later celexa was added 20mg then increased to 40mg huge personality change went wild. Did too fast taper off Celexa 05 as I felt unwell for a long time prior... quit Effexor 150mg ct 07 found ****** 8 months into withdrawal learned some things was banned from there in 08 have kept learning since. there is really not enough room here to put my history but I have a lot of opinions about a lot of things especially any of the drugs mentioned above.
One thing I would like to add here is this tidbit ALL OPIATES INCREASE SEROTONIN it is not a huge jump to being in chronic pain to being put on an ssri/snri and opiates will affect your antidepressants and your thinking.

As I do not update much I will put my quit date Nov. 17 2007 I quit Effexor cold turkey. 


There is a crack in everything ..That's how the light gets in :)
