Of course this helps brother. You are absolutely great!

PS1:I ate a pot of mussels 1 month ago,thought i was passing away.
PS2:Here is the mainland of pistachios.
PS3:I [...] WD of cuts arent bigger this histamin bomb times...

[...], it it makes you feel better it can probably go either way. I had a major problem with histamine when I first quit benzos and tapering Mirt was getting rough. I ate too much histamine on Christmas last year and spent the night throwing up. Now I am at 3 mg and I eat fish, lobster, clams, can tolerate spinach again if I donít get too carried away. I eat eggs for breakfast everyday and am eating way too much fast food lately than I should. I am eating massive amounts of histamine lately and experience only minor discomfort. I even eat chocolate again. I am going to start getting strict with my diet again tough to help me through the low doses at the end of this taper. I expect to have a rougher fall allergy and spring allergy season as well. Just want to report that my histamine issues are improving. Last spring I ate salmon for dinner and felt like I was back in acute benzo withdrawal for a week. I could  eat salmon now with minimal issues.

So,you are saying it is a term which may depend season,current dose or accumulative effect of the foods that i eat and also suppose not harmful albeit i pay attention to histamine foods. As you know, my only and big problem has been anxiety, but now i am getting terrible anxiety, depression and some other things. I found that i ate too much chicken product(especially chicken neck sold at bazaar) and foods with sunflower oil supposing that they arent harmful.
Upon WD, this histamine mess is so disgusting.I am steadily thinking in these days whether the issues are from WD or histamine related.Last week, i ate fish too, but it stayed 2 days and i found big relief with Vit C for some days then. Ňow it is day 3 and i am living terrible anxiety,depression and restless face nerves.GI issues have settled down. I think it takes some time to get back 'normal' once the routine and mast cell balance are out of order. [...] soothes soon and get back my functionality...

I am terribly experiencing and understanding Mast Cell Activation. I am both happy understanding this and unhappy suffering after eating some foods. Everyday is a lesson of this reality. Once the histamine bucket is full of histamin agent and the gut flora is out of order after throwing beneficial mucus and so bacterias, it requires some great effort to keep calm and making some arrangements.I have been eating like a junk supposing i am conscious about that, but this stuff requires much more, you know. Thankfully, there are [...] and some of you who warn us about the things we must obey!

Firstly, i twiced my bazaar shops from once a week. I have been doing well at home, but this is not enough, i have stopped to eat @work because there is no guarentee about the foods whether they are fresh or not perished.I stopped[...] protein eating until my bucket is empty some.I am just eating egg yolk frequently to support my plant based new habit.I [...] this and quercetin support works very well,because they worked interminently.Now i need your prayers to get these rough days.Tx all of you

Hey all,
           So today is a big day for me as I am now officially at 3 mg. I graduate to a 1 ml syringe which is my last big milestone on this journey. This allows me to change my taper a little. I had been tapering .15 mg twice a week and then holding when symptoms became too severe. This smaller syringes will allow smaller more frequent cuts. I will now be cutting .06 mg every 2 days and holding when necessary. I have cut sweets out of my diet and am bring somewhat careful with histamine levels. I guess this also means I will be jumping from .06 mg of Remeron. Does anyone know if that is low enough? I donít know how I could measure any smaller than that but where there is a will there is a way I guess. I am nervous about the lower doses after hearing so many report great difficulty with the last few milligrams. I am crossing my fingers.

[...], any luck with controlling histamine levels? Curious if you have been able to get any relief from your symptoms.

I am glad you have some good times about your condition. Please be careful at this times, because the tapering curve says it breaks more vertical after these doses.

I have been doing very bad for 1 year supposing my diet is so clean. And I have had bad times for this reason apart from anxiety. Now i know if have some sxs at the same time out of [...], it is histamine problems. Especially at the times when i dont cut or small cut. I am doing every step what [...] did back then. Paying attention to feed plant based but dont neglect protein issue. I am eating fresh frozen and fresh thawed meats, fresh slaughtered meats, but if i do it, i am taking a little quercetin powder before meat meals or before histamine ranked meals. After doing that, i havent had so much problems about it.Also paying attention to keep blood sugar levels stable.

Oooo.Anxiety.My closest buddie.You know it hasnt stopped since starting. I remember coming here and crying 1 year ago and you made me assure and soothe about that.I cant figure out how a health problem could be such devastating and long term, i couldnt think a diabetic person has high sugar levels for such a long term, or someone has high blood pressure. I had a short term drug mess in May 19 and since then i had no [...]. I know i would totally heal by now, but things were so dramatic to start this stuff. How ironic a drug to stop those days' anxiety would cause more anxiety!I cant figure out how dozens of people have healed most sxs even after strong benzos and how my only and persistent anxiety still hits me by now.

I found that pure Ascorbic Acid has a wonderful effect on stopping my anxiety, but it gave me huge GI issues.So then i stopped it. Now i am taking the most absorbable form of Vit C, which is Lipozomal C, its' daily dosages are 3 or 4 grams. I am combining it with No Flush Niacin 1.5 or 2 grams. Thats a famous combination which a Canadian doc Abram Hoffer used his patients to help heroin WD. I now know firsthand Vit C soothed my anxiety to a degree even if it hasnt stopped completely.Thats my condition and i am waiting it to stop anymore. Last 2 months have been a real big challenge and i [...] it completes its course soon.

Take care

How a heavy burden on one's life!

I have been doing somethings to put it the right way. Taking care to feed low histamine foods. Taking away the extra stressors from my life. Doing somethings to suffer less.

While doing sth needed to be more functional, i was seeking DAO supplement to reduce histamine response this morning. My wife scolded me "there is one thing that you havent bought, buy it too, but when the subject is things for home, you think it many times.". I said that you still dont know how i suffered and she replied dont believe the things you read on the internet, just go to the doctor. Of course i replied they brought me into this condition bla bla bla..

That was just a little part of this strong debate. Higher volumes, opposing accusations. I dont know how i could explain my condtion who dont know the things we live even if she is my wife.

Thats the hardest part of this stuff after suffering...

I have gone against the grain my whole life. It is not easy at all but it is the most rewarding in the end. They don't know how hard we fight to just get out of bed and go to work in the morning. They don't know what it is like to sit down and watch a movie just to prove to yourself that you can. They just watch it, they can't feel the extreme restlessness that we feel in withdrawal and how sitting down to watch a movie to us sometimes is the equivalent of them free climbing a skyscraper. If they understood they certainly would not act the way they do or say the things they do. We push through an unimaginable hell just to put food on the table everyday. We do it so well that we allow them to think to themselves that it must not be that bad. That is a testament to our strength. The fact is that as much as they judge us in our weak states they probably would not handle it as gracefully as we have. When I say "they" I mean everyone in our lives we wish we could confide in who [...] to convince us if we just take a deep breath we will go back to normal. Those who have been brainwashed by doctors and drug companies to believe that there is no such thing as psychiatric medication withdrawal. They [...] to convince us that we need meds that we lived without for years totally fine. We will get off the medication and get better and then they will know the truth.

I have had to start controlling histamine levels as well now. Ragweed allergy season has been taking it's toll on me here in the US. About a month left in it. Now that I am down to 2.64 mg I have been struggling with mild nausea for a large portion of the day and quite a bit of insomnia. I had to call out of work today because I did not sleep a minute last night. I have not gotten more than 6 hours sleep in weeks which is not normal for me. My vacation a couple of weeks ago was ruined by 3 FULL DAYS of insomnia. I was so tired and sick I could not function at all. I am definitely struggling. So far not even close to what I went through in Xanax withdrawal but this seems to definitely be getting tougher as I get lower. I have not lost a single nights sleep throughout this entire taper until the last couple of weeks. The nausea is not that bad but definitely annoying. It goes away if I eat most of the time. If I eat the wrong thing it comes back. Those are my most notable symptoms at this point. I am trying not to hold until I get to 2 mg but I certainly will if I have to.

I am very tired that she cant understand me mostly. So, when the things are too much, i am just saying "when you have headache, you could up your majezik or ibuprofen intake to 5 or 6 times daily, think about me, my weakest sx is strong headache and there are 4 or 5 sxs at the same time sometimes". That is the thing i defence myself and mostly works. lol.

Jack, i know you know the best and yourself the best, but i think you should slow it down a little. You have come here with minimal disturbances except some waves but i am really very very much surprised how this stuff worked in terms of histamine sxs. So if you have had these times like insomnia, please be cautious and let your body to catch up cumulatives. I dont want to breakdown your courage but i am reading many people come here without little problem and suffer greatly after 1 or 2 mgs, so please take it easy and dont consider this stuff as a thing to escape, consider it as a histamine drug to help with histamine intolerance and Mast Cell Stabilizer. I am seeing it like that, otherwise i suffer with OCD. If you ask me, you could also [...] Liposomal Form of Vit C for 1000 mg 3 or 4 times daily. It did nothing to my stomach opposing to pure powder. I strongly believe it has an important role to decrease both MCAS and anxiety. I am also using pure powder quercetin before meals, but i am suspicious about it due to the low absorption. If i had a chance to acquire it Lipo form here, i would definitely [...]. The other and big gun is DAO which has no production here. So i cant [...] it now.

Take care brother.

I just finished my long taper of Mirtezapine 5 days ago and Iím getting slammed. I slow tapered for about 19 months off 3.75Mg Mirtezapine. I went all the way down to a tiny dot of powder. I am relieved to be off from it so now to heal. I [...] these withdrawal symptoms pass soon. I was wondering how [...] is doing now since he came off.

I am celebrsting you because of your long journey reaches to an end.Now be happy to see this finish line.I also wonder [...] too.

I am struggling the ulcer,gastrit etc sxs which artificial Vit C's gave me. Goddamn supplements, too. I have been using it for 2-3 months regularly or intermittently. This rush made my ongoing anxiety to an incredible level.I am curious is there anyone who suffered acute ulcer while being on remeron. I am trying to surpress it while using olive and coconut oils before meals. My gut flora has been upside down due to this disturbence, too. Everything was going smooth due to low histamine diet, but this is too hard. I think i am living a rough period which Jack lived in Covid. I [...] this would be acute and my stomach and gut will find [...] after supplements terror. If you have a suggestion, please chime in.

[...], congrulations again

Hi [...]. What an accomplishment to be finished with Mirt! I know how incredibly hard it is to taper horrible Mirt. Hang on, the withdrawal will fade away hopefully soon.

Be well,
