While my depression is better eating keto and my lows aren’t as low, I do continue to take Paxil. I have had my dose lowered but I have been taking it for 17 years and the withdrawal from it is too hard for me to wean off it. I have recurrent major depression but I do find my anxiety is completely gone eating keto. Everyone is different and if you haven’t been on meds long, talk to your doctor and see what they think about you weaning off. Please do not stop taking your medication without doctor approval.
The shocking difference in my mood after having under 20g of Carbs for weeks then to consciously have a cheat meal (oh I justified the hell out of allowing myself to do that) was ALARMING. I had been feeling peaceful and unstressed for weeks before this. I sat down at this table ate carbs like ridiculous. And within five minutes of leaving that place, I found myself having road rage, thinking really negative thoughts, feeling angry at everything. I was so irritable it truly was shocking. Night and day difference. I remember thinking at the time it was happening was “what the F—!” Seriously shocked at how my mood was affected by carbs. I won’t forget it.
