u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/BipolarReddit

Oh my god, are you like my long lost sibling or something? I literally got on BipolarReddit to ask a question about head buzzing and saw your post. Like you, I've try two SSRI's and a Trycyclic because I need something for anxiety besides benzo's. I really have to limit myself on taking Xanax or it stops working and I'm not going on that route again increasing it. I have insane IBS and not much seems to help. Anyways, I just stopped taking Celexa about a week and a half ago because it was making me clench my jaw and giving me tension headaches. It was also making me rapid cycle and I've been rapid cycling since coming off the medicine. Yesterday and today I've been getting this "buzz" feeling in my head, almost like I'm high or something. It's euphoric and comes in waves, but it gets very annoying when it doesn't stop. I was gonna ask if I'm just getting this because my body is readjusting after stopping the Celexa.

I'm getting hella frustrated because I've tried numerous medications. I was on Lamictal for a while, but it made me have the same feelings of slowness and clumsiness you are describing. That and I went hypomanic and was 100% certain that I was fine and didn't need medication at all. Lamictal also made it hard to recall simple things. It would take me like a minute of struggling to remember someone's name that normally wouldn't be a problem.

I do have some tips for you though.
First of all IBS.
Watch what you eat and learn your trigger foods, it took me like 3 years to figure mine out. Some of my main perpetrators are sesame seeds, peppers or anything spicy, lettuce, and fruits with seeds. Also, drinking pop in the morning will guaranteed set off my IBS, but if I have a pop at lunch I'm fine. Sadly, most "healthy green foods" just so happen to be triggers for IBS. To get around this, you kinda have to pick and choose the vegetables you eat, or eat them at the end of a meal. Green beans never give me problems, so I've grown to love them. If you like salad, make sure to chew it really well and eat it after something like bread or some kind of meat like chicken. Avoid sesame seeds at all costs, I've gotten used to getting burgers without a bun and eating with a fork, or you can request to have two bottom buns on your burger and most fast food places will accommodate.

There are a few OTC things you can try that might help. First, probiotics are a miracle. This will probably be your new best friend: http://www.amazon.com/Natures-Bounty-Probiotic-Acidophilus-Capsules/dp/B001G7QRZS This is a 4 pack, which is more than an entire year's worth. They're chewable and taste like strawberry, I just eat one in the morning before breakfast. If you don't like strawberry, there are plenty of probiotics out there in pill form. Just look for "acidophilus", and you want to get one with at least a billion organisms per serving.

This won't entirely fix IBS because it never truly goes away, but I would say 75% of my IBS problems have gone away because of it. If you have cramping problems, I've found that peppermint oil capsules can help a lot with that. If I know I'm gonna be eating a heavy meal or if I have class or a meeting where I don't want to have an IBS attack, I'll take peppermint in the morning. It gets rid of the cramping and the urgency in case you do have an attack so you'll have 30ish minutes to get to a bathroom and be fine. http://www.amazon.com/Heathers-Tummy-Tamers-Peppermint-Capsules-180ct/dp/B00149WZMW/ref=sr_1_2?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1314220671&sr=1-2 is about a years supply also if you want to give that a try. If you do try peppermint, you ABSOLUTELY have to take it on an empty stomach and not eat for about 30 minutes. If you don't, the capsule breaks in your stomach and you burp peppermint for an hour. I just take it right when I wake up with just a tiny bit of water. Then I take a shower, get ready, and by the time I eat breakfast enough time has passed.

K, now back to bipolar disorder. Have you ever tried Wellbutrin? It's an NDRI and has nothing to do with seretonin. I think seretonin is just plain bad news for anyone with bipolar disorder, at least in my experience. It's an antidepressant, but also a very mild off label adhd medicine, so it can get rid of the fuzziness and forgetfullness of lamictal. I've had no side effects whatsoever with it. Also, how do you feel about atypical antipsychotics? All the side effects scare me a lot, but I'm tempted to try one because nothing else is working. That and it would probably be good to have Seroquel knock me out at night so I don't stay up hyper until 4am all the time. You very well could be having problems with ADHD if you have attention problems. I got tested and it came back inconclusive, but my psychiatrist is gonna do a trial with me on dexedrine to see if that will lift me out of the depression and help me focus. Especially considering that Wellbutrin works slightly for me, she thinks that medicine that works on Dopamine and Norepinephrine will help me out better. I'm not currently on Lamictal because of the fuzzyness and focusing issues, but at my next meeting, I'm gonna start back up with it since I will be starting dexedrine.

Anyways, sorry about the wall of text and if it's jumbled. The euphoric waves are making spastic and I think I've been slightly hypomanic the last few days. Let me know if you find something that works, we sound a lot alike.

I also noticed that you've only been on Lamictal for 4 weeks. The fuzziness subsided a little around week 6 for me and I was on 200mg, but it still was there. Maybe Wellbutrin would be a good addition for you.

u/fifthredditincarnati · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

Wow, some people here are giving you bad advice.

Yeah, pizza might not be the most awesome choice of meal, but hell, it won't kill you to eat a couple of slices now and then. You're pregnant, you crave weird/unhealthy food - this is the way it works! DO try to eat healthy meals as often as you can, but morning sickness is hard enough without constantly worrying about gaining weight with every bite you eat.

OK: now for advice you actually asked for ... I was the EXACT same way in both my pregnancies! I was constantly nauseous for seven out of the nine months, and only savoury foods every 10 minutes would kill the puking sensation.

However, I only gained 15 lbs my first time and 9 lbs the second time - mostly due to great genes... but also in part due to the following strategy: I found a few awesome savoury foods with near-zero calories and ate THEM most of the time instead of pizza and fries and potato chips.

  • Sliced fruit (apple, pineapple, pear, watermelon, or even cucumber) sprinkled with salt and/or chaat masala

  • Home-made salt-and-herb croutons with little or no oil

  • This awesome spicy-sour-savory "candy" which I'm still quite addicted to even after the baby was born a month ago. It's zero calories, and it has only all-natural ingredients, and as an awesome added bonus, it even kills heartburn! :) I'd eat 10 or 12 of these chewie tablets a day, and it was the most reliable killer of nausea I had. Check out your local South Asian grocery store, it will probably have it foe $2 or so - Amazon is expensive.

    Again - these suggestions are only IF you want to try them, and you should absolutely go ahead and eat that pizza when you're craving it and/or need it for the nausea. Please don't sweat the weight gain issue. Reddit is terribly fat-phobic (not even fat, people here are hateful towards any woman larger than a size 4), this is not who you should be listening to in these matters. As long as your doctor isn't concerned about your weight gain, you should not be!
u/LolaBleu · 3 pointsr/ibs

Nausea is my most disruptive symptom :p I take an prescription antiemetic (not odansetron which gave me the worst, most painful constipation of my life when I was on it for a month), but if it's just occasional that this happens you might try dramamine/gavrol; if nothing else it's sometime to try if you can't get to the doctor for an Rx right away.

I started out really disliking ginger, but now I love it, lol. But these The Ginger People tablets are amazingly effective at controlling nausea. They're chewable, but you can just swallow them whole w/ a bit of water and you won't get much ginger flavor (if you do chew them it's like getting punched in the mouth by ginger root, just fyi). I've tried other tablets and capsules, and though they all work to some extent, these one are the best. I do find that taking a peppermint supplement helps, but even taking it on an empty stomach and using an enteric coated variety doesn't always stop it from flaring up my gerd; most days I just deal w/ it.

u/climb-high · 1 pointr/ibs

Do you take all 6mg at once? Just curious because I'm going to start experimenting when I'm having terrible days. I posted this in the wrong spot.

Thank you for the advice. I currently take bentonite clay but just talked to my doctor about switching to charcoal. The issue is it absorbs supplements and meds as well, so it's hard to find a great time to take it (especially if you need it multiple/many times a day). I'm on colloidal silver and am soon going on Atrantil as well. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N9O0RGT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_lzxvzb6KY53K2
If this regimen doesn't help I'll absolutely consider your suggestions with my doctor. Rifaximin was a massive failure, Wormwood complex (MediHerb) didn't do enough, and I couldn't tolerate grapefruit seed extract. The fun world of natural antibiotics!! Glad someone else here knows about them.

I was trying to make a point about loperamide deficiency. Let me elaborate. If your IBS is "cured" by loperamide, it wasn't because you had a loperamide deficiency. If your symptoms return on a loperamide break, it isn't because you became deficient in loperamide. It's a bandaid that covers up an underlying motility issue that could have countless drivers. I'm not against loperamide but as primary treatment I'm personally not a fan.

u/eviljolly · 2 pointsr/soylent

I'm 6'5", 250lbs, and I've been running or lifting just about every day. I drink most of the 2000 calorie container each day, but I require about 3000-3500 calories for my body size, so I eat a meal and snack on top of that. My BM frequency increased quite a bit after starting Soylent 1.0. I went from once a day to 3, maybe 4 times a day, and now it's settled back down to two on average. I don't think the overall amount is much different though. Probably less, if anything. I've been adding whey protein, PB2, and assorted fruits to make smoothies for about half of my Soylent meals.

As far as the gas goes, I believe they're essentially adding Beano to 1.1, so perhaps you could pick up some to tide you over. My gas issues subsided after the first week, although I'm still above my baseline. Not really much different than when I eat oatmeal though.

I don't think that your eCigs or vaping habits would be responsible. Although, it's possible that munchies could get your bowel moving a bit because you're feeling hungry, even if you're not eating anything due to them.

Drinking Soylent slowly seems to help a lot, but I recommend getting something for the gas if it's not getting better. Perhaps cutting back on your Soylent intake just a bit would make things more tolerable. 1 "real" meal a day seems to be working well for me.

u/sticky-bit · 3 pointsr/codyslab

> Same for amylase, where can I get that?

The easiest (not cheapest) way is probably using Beano capsules. I pressure-cooked some sweet meal animal feed to make a gruel and then added a Beano capsule. Went from thick paste to watery gruel. The enzymes are heat sensitive.

It was an experiment to make a molasses porter, with some large part of the grain bill coming from the feed store.

Homebrew supplies sometimes have them in bulk. Also places that cater to distillers but you're treading a legality line here. I've heard that people who were buying sugar in bulk for a zombie apocalypses being assumed to be making moonshine. Just don't pick up a hundred pounds of yeast and some copper line, OK?

Malt syrup from homebrew stores is often labeled "Diastatic", which should mean that the enzymes are still present and could break down other items with the remaining enzymes. This starts going down the rabbit hole of homebrewing beer, and here it's common to use malted grain (with the enzymes from the malting process) to breakdown either roasted malted grain or unmalted grain. Again, too much heat deactivates or breaks down the enzymes.

If you're using a starch and expect to break it down using one process or another, you need to cook it to beyond it's "gelatinous" point first, and then usually lower the heat so it doesn't kill the enzymes, then add your malt, or syrup or enzymes. Heat speeds up the enzymes but too much kills 'em.

The exception to reaching the "gelatinous" point is to buy the stuff that has already been processed. In the "all grain" homebrew beer culture this means instant oats or instant rice off the grocery store shelf, or specialty stuff like processed rolled rye flakes (essentially instant oatmeal made with rye instead of oats)

one more thing, I'll leave it to you to discover how the Sumerian got their enzymes to brew beer with. They used last year's starvation food (food safety net) to brew beer. If your chemistry teacher ever did a demo with a saltine cracker and an iodine test for sugar, it's about the same thing.

This ran kinda long so let me cc: u/CodyDon because he might have some interest.

As someone who suffered with chronic, debilitating IBS/gas & bloating for over a decade, I can honestly say that Ayurvedic KAYAM Tablets are the single most effective supplement I've ever used for gas, bloating, & constipation. I would also strongly recommend 1-2 tbsp of Heather's Acacia Tummy Fiber in a cup of bone broth everyday for great overall GI health & function.

u/Bluest_waters · 1 pointr/todayilearned

you can prevent it by cooking them yourself. The two ways of dealing with oligosaccharides are

  1. Soaking the beans in water for several hours before cooking. 9 to 10 hours is best

  2. Cooking the beans in an alkaline solution. This is why grandma always add baking soda when she cooked beans, made the solution more alkaline

    http://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/putting-the-polish-on-those-humble-beans/

    But if you're eating already cooked beans in the can the only thing you can do really get something like beano

u/Warpedme · 1 pointr/pics

You may be one of the (un?)lucky few who aren't effected. I could fuel a methane reactor if I don't soak and strain them. Some people get gas from it so bad that it hurts them. I know quite a few people who have to use Beano because of it. Luckily for me its more haha funny than uh oh funny.

u/blarrick · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

> simethicone

Found this on Amazon. I've always heard of Gasx (the link is the knockoff brand) from commercials but just never tried it. I'm more interested in figuring out the problem than covering it up but honestly for $20 I think it's a no brainer to keep these handy for when I go out. Thank you for the advice, hopefully it works.

u/glass_magnolia · 1 pointr/ibs

Yes, usually it's from the pain of being constipated or I just plain ate something that didn't agree with me. I usually go for the peppermint capsules or Digestzen

Good luck and feel better.

Edit: It could be spasms though. If so you may need to ask your Doc for something like Bentyl or some other kind of antispasmodic.

u/step1 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Try the yeast nutrient and energizer combo along with another pack of the same yeast. I don't think it is totally necessary to boil the nutrient or energizer but if you're super paranoid you may want to boil it in just a tiny bit of water before adding it.

Beano is this stuff that is basically for gas relief (i.e. you ate too many beans and can't stop farting). Yes, seriously. Apparently it can dry out a beer due to some sort of enzyme reaction. 1 drop apparently goes a long way. I haven't tried it or anything, just heard of it. I would use this as an absolutely last resort after researching more about it.

u/AbsoluteTruthiness · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

I used to have the occasional heartburn before. There is a super useful antacid sold by GlaxoSmithKline everywhere in India. It would take for me literally seconds to get rid of the burning sensation unlike Tums which takes a while and also without tasting like crap unlike baking soda. If you have an Indian grocery store near where you live, you might find it at a cheaper price than Amazon.

u/Hopehopehope4ever · 48 pointsr/cripplingalcoholism

NICE WORK!!!!
Tightening up your game now. If you’re going to drink at work, be smart. Every.single. time.

Assume your breath is always AWFUL.
Gum all the time is suspicious! I feel strongly about that especially now because “they are on to you” I would even stay away from it.

Halls are great for boozie breath, peanut butter, red hot candies, and those listerine strips.
I would even get those little potent peppermint capsules:

I just started (since the new year) taking peppermint oil every morning, and I have to admit I think it really helps. I also don't mind burping a little peppermint in the morning lol

 

I only take it once a day, but also take 1-2 imodium a day to be safe, does anyone take peppermint oil more than once a day?

I also react poorly with any SSRI antidepressant, but this is an old tricyclic antidepressant which has very minimal side effects. You take it right before bed so you'll wake up a bit groggy. But the rest of the day is pretty smooth.

Try peppermint oil immediately. It will give you instant relief.

u/bumblebee_33 · 2 pointsr/medical

I don't know if this is a real thing, but it accidentally worked for me - I started taking Vitamin E because I read it helped with acne. While it did nothing for my acne, my stomach issues are virtually gone.

I've had IBS since I was a teenager, and managed it mostly with diet but if I ate one wrong thing or got stressed or nervous I would get diarrhea all the time. I can count the number of times I've had diarrhea on one hand in the last few months. It's been great.

I've also read that peppermint oil capsules work well, but I've never tried them so I can't personally vouch for them.

u/vgr1 · 2 pointsr/Rabbits

Have you looked in the baby section for "Infants' Gas Relief Drops"... something like this with no additives. Double check with your vet.

"Gripe water is a home remedy for colic that used to be made with dill, baking soda, and alcohol." eekk.. I would not use that!

As a wildly un-informed speculative guess, maybe twice a week?

Should be available in a large-ish grocery store with OTC remedies in the digestive section; almost certainly available in the drug store.

For example.

Chewables, obviously, wouldn't work.

I need the gas drops on my baby list. I haven't gotten them yet because they were originally an add on item when I put them on my list, and I haven't had the extra money to get it. But baby is also really gassy and those would probably help.

Or any books or funkos. Because books and funkos.

You may be able to buy peppermint capsules instead of going to the clinic. You can get them online for sure (http://www.amazon.com/Heathers-Tummy-Tamers-Peppermint-Capsules/dp/B0002UDK4Q) but I've seen them in many health foods stores and even just some regular pharmacies in the supplement section.

As for the IBS, I'd wait until you see your GP about it, and maybe even a gastroenterologist, until you worry. The doctors at those clinics are just trying to get you in and out as fast as possible, and when there's nothing serious wrong they just want to tell you SOMETHING. Plenty of people have IBS that barely affects their life whatsoever, so IBS is a quick and easy diagnosis to give somebody. Now, lots of people, (like the ones here) are miserable with IBS, so don't scares yourself quite yet with our stories.

u/devilsho · 1 pointr/FODMAPS

For garlic, it's like 2 hellish days for me and then it tapers off into random abdominal cramps after that. All in all I'd say it takes a week for me to fully recover. Get you some of Heather's Peppermint capsules, pop em a few times a day, and try out CBD oil too. That stuff is magic. If I've really messed up I take some ibuprofen as well.

May help with pain.

Also ask an MD for dicyclomine, it's antispasmodic. Make you loopy and you'll sleep.

Get a really good probiotic, that'll help get your intestines get back to digesting.

Most of all, be patient with the pain. It REALLY HURTS, but it will pass. Allow yourself to be sick.

u/cosmogyralash · 1 pointr/panicdisorder

I always vomit with my panic attacks so I understand your struggle with it! When I went away for college my stomach would hurt so bad that I couldn't eat and if I did I'd be sick, so I started taking what we call in my house as "peppermint pills." Essentially they're peppermint extract and for me they surprising would calm my stomach enough to eat. This is the brand I've been using. My doctor also gave me a prescription for Ondansetron, 8mg (the 4mg doesn't do much for me), dissoluble pills that work magic most the time. I just take one when needed.

u/Veteran4Peace · 8 pointsr/Cooking

I have a funny story somewhat related to this. Well, related at least in terms of "eating things that cause massive suffering later."

About five years ago when I was still married, I went through a six-month period of constant stomach pain and bowel upset. My wife bought me a pack of peppermint oil capsules that are supposed to help with your digestion and ease stomach upset.

They're tiny little things and I took five or six of them with dinner. I didn't notice any effect whatsoever. I mean, zero effect. Nada.

The next morning, as I'm sitting on the toilet, I suddenly notice the scent of peppermint, which quickly becomes the very strong scent of peppermint. For an instant I wondered "WTF?" before realizing what I was smelling...and then the burning started.

The burning quickly progressed to extreme anal discomfort which, after about ten seconds, ramped up to atomic ass-rape with a candy cane dildo.

I actually yelped like a kicked dog, jumped off the toilet and straight into the shower in one move, and sprayed cold water on my ass for about twenty minutes. The pain was eye-watering and my ass was sore for about a week. Those damned capsules didn't dissolve until right before they exited and the pure peppermint oil felt like a napalm enema.

(I can't even imagine the aftermath of a ghost pepper.)
