I have had aspartame poisoning for 28 years.
Didn't know just what it was till 19.5 years later.--July 2002;
Have seen 38 doctors in the past 9yr. 3months;
Only (1) knew just how deadly it really is;
He was my 18th doctor, and it took me 3yrs. to find him;
IF you don't know just what aspartame is, go to http://www.whno.net/the_ecologist_aspartame_report.htm - that will give you 294 sights, it is the top sight, read it and you will find out just how deadly it really is;

I can't speak to the aspartame, but you are overdosing by 3x on loratadine, and you don't say how many mg the B-6 pills are, but you may be overdosing on those too. Some of your symptoms are probably due to this.

Loratadine Overdose

Though B6 is important, don't overdose

I don't care what snopes says--I had seizures for over 10 years b/c of that stuff. Haven't had one since I stopped consuming the poison. Every now and again I come across someone who describes having those same weird seizures (which I had diagnosed by a neurologist) and I ask about aspartame and sure enough, they are diet soda addicts or something. Aspartame is not a nutrient and it's not needed in the diet and if anyone is having problems they should stop consuming the stuff and see what happens.

I think some doctors believe in it, and others don't, for the reason that it's hard to separate out the symptoms of diabetes from the side effects of aspartame.

Diabetes is a horrible disease with even more symptoms than the most hyperbolic description of aspartame poisoning. Aspartame was once used extensively by diabetics, and by people trying to lose weight - and both still drink it in soft drinks (last I checked, only a few of them have moved on to using Splenda - Diet RC is one).

Overweight people using aspartame are very likely to have some borderline diabetes, and thus again it's hard to say which symptoms are from which problem. Doctors KNOW about diabetes, but the knowledge about aspartame isn't as conclusive.

I do have to say, though, that when aspartame first came out I went whole-hog for it. Used it for everything. I don't know if it was coincidence that I developed diabetes soon after starting to use it.

And I DO mean I don't know if it was coincidence, it certainly could be, since I was a prime candidate for diabetes anyway: I was overweight and ate a high-carb diet.

The practice of medicine is incredibly complex. Something which is relatively rare, such as Aspartame poisoning, is likely to go undiagnosed, especially since those symptoms can have so many other causes. When most people tolerate something just fine, but when a few people have toxic reactions to it, then we enter into these grey, complex areas.

Could you describe the "weird seizures" as completely as possible? I had some kind of strange seizure-like activity around the time I was using it, but it stopped when I took Lamictal, an anti-seizure med used for something else.

To quote myself from another thread:

I'll go with people who have actually done real research on aspartame:

Aspartame and susceptibility to headache. [N Engl J Med. 1987] - PubMed - NCBI

This study was done in a group of people who reported headaches with aspartame:

"We conclude that in this population, aspartame is no more likely to produce headache than placebo."

Aspartame is no more likely than plac... [J Allergy Clin Immunol. 1993] - PubMed - NCBI (on allergy):

"These results indicate that aspartame and its conversion products are no more likely than placebo to cause urticaria and/or angioedema reactions in subjects with a history consistent with hypersensitivity to aspartame."

Aspartame: review of safety. [Regul Toxicol Pharmacol. 2002] - PubMed - NCBI

"Nonetheless, additional research, including evaluations of possible associations between aspartame and headaches, seizures, behavior, cognition, and mood as well as allergic-type reactions and use by potentially sensitive subpopulations, has continued after approval. ... The safety testing of aspartame has gone well beyond that required to evaluate the safety of a food additive. When all the research on aspartame, including evaluations in both the premarketing and postmarketing periods, is examined as a whole, it is clear that aspartame is safe, and there are no unresolved questions regarding its safety under conditions of intended use."

And commentary on aspartame:

Aspartame gives me and my kids stomach cramps and diarrhea. Just a few sticks of sugar free gum will do it. This was years ago and took us awhile to figure it. Once we did we conducted our own experiments for a long time just to be sure. Yup. I told the Dr and she didn't seem to know but when I later got on the internet I discovered it was actually pretty common. Dr's ought to know this, it will save their patients a lot of grief.
