The Anxiety Summit – How Methylfolate can make you Feel Worse and even Cause Anxiety, and What to do about it
I have been on Pristiq and Xanax Xr for many years. My husband was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer over two years and though he is Thank God doing fine I have been feeling depressed. So I found a new psychiatrist as we had to move to another state through all of my husbands treatments and she recommended Deplin 15. Since taking it I have felt so many horrible side effects. Tingling in my arms and legs. Joint pains. Nausea. So after one week I stopped it. It is now almost 3 weeks since I stopped it and I still have these side effects. While I am upset and nervous about it, your article at least made me feel I wasn’t hallucinating these feelings and feel it was definitely too coincidental to be anything other than the Deplin. But no where in your article does it say WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT. Maybe I missed it but how do I get rid of these side effects. I’m drinking lots of water to get it out of my system but wonder how long it takes. I have so much on my plate between my husband and mom I can’t afford to feel this way every day. How do I get this methyl folate out of my system. It’s scaring me. Any advice would be so appreciated. I hope I haven’t caused damage to my body by taking this Deplin15. I feel paranoid that it was a big mistake and it will never go away. Please help
Protein Perfection does not contain any harmful ingredients. Aside from the amino acid blend, it also uses standard flavouring, sucralose and citric acid for the flavours. Sucralose (955), this is a registered safe sweetener by the FSANZ (Food Standard Australia New Zealand). The FSANZ set an acceptable daily intake (ADI) for sucralose as 15mg/kg of body weight. This means a person weighing 100kg can consume 1500mg of sucralose safely each day. This amount of sucralose would be equivalent to 10 serves (20 scoops) of Protein Perfection a day.
