Hello all. I have been diagnosed with high histamine due to a lack of DAO enzyme. This manifests in flushing, multiple food intolerances, angioedema, you name it.
I also have severe OCD and it has become so bad I am trying anti depressants
. I have tried three different SSRIs - duloxetine
and all have made the anxiety worse, even after initial side effects
go. What happens is - i get used to the dose and start getting high anxiety. Then I increase the dose, am OK for a few days and the anxiety begins again. So it is not a start up issue.
Has anyone got any ideas for an anti anxiety drug
or AD? I am trying the trycyclics next as I know they can have anti histamine qualities?
Are there any other types of anxiety drug that lower or do not affect histamine? I tried diazepam
and that made me worse and Seroquel sent me manic!
