    I got a cracking headache this morning but I did when I first started. Canít say I feel anxious though. It was horrendous when I was on duloxetine for nerve pain. I had heart palpitations and everything. Iíll probably stay on 1 mg a while.
    It is amazing the way we all react so differently to drugs. I am on Duloxetine and not only is it helping tremendously with nerve pain, it has improved my mood so much. I feel so happy all the time!! Obviously that means the withdrawal symptoms would be horrendous but I think I will need to continue taking it for a long time for the pain anyway.
    I have been trialling MSM capsules too ( for flushing). It definitely makes my face extra cool. A lovely sensation.

    appreciate that
    I noticed anxiety + depression for me with LDN. It actually made my face worse (low dose, higher dose). There is a really active LDN facebook group that's into dosing optimally.
    In general (not always) there is a reasonable chance I think side effects will reduce over time.

    Momof - MSM makes me worse. Such an odd thing this all is! Glad you are getting benefit, though. I agree, with cymbalta (or really any antidepressant for me) - it's like giving me a pair of fresh new glasses to see the world.

    All antidepressants make me ill same with my sister. They have given me nortriptyline but Iíve not taken it as I want to give LDN at least 3 months to a year .

    Zhongzhou cream I havenít tried yet as my skin is supper sensitive and dry. Im struggling with washing at the moment. Iím using Cerave Smoothing as itís surprisingly the only face wash that my skin can cope with and then Cerave moisturising lotion.
    Iím carrying on with soolantra for a forth month as it has I think stopped the big spots .
    Iíve got angular cheilitis and exfoliating cheilitis now as well for goodness sake

    Are you still taking LDN?
    I've found Symprove very helpful for stomach symptoms - I try to have it before very main meal. Different probiotics are very different, with many being ineffective, but this one really seems to work for me.

    Yes Iím taking a probiotic NU one and Iím looking at taking a better one but I have found a lot make my situation worse so Iím holding off waiting for my lactose and hydrogen test to make sure itís not sibo Iíve got. Which would account for why probiotics make it worse.
    My mouth and lips burn after eating which drives me nuts.
    Iíve had 5 doctors try to give me antibiotics for my rosacea but I just canít see how my stomach could take it as it was antibiotics that triggered my stomach issues followed by rosacea.

    I also agree that Symprove is beneficial however my understanding is that you are to take it 1st thing in the morning 10 minutes before any other food/drink to give the bacteria the best chance of reaching the gut unharmed to work its magic ?

    Yes I take it first thing before food in the morning. However, I've also found it helpful to take before my main meal or before any foods that may irritate rosacea (e.g. dairy) - only half the amount recommended then. It certainly has the best scientific evidence behind it compared to other probiotics.

    If you're interested in the nutrition/gut/diet route to treating rosacea, Symprove was recommended to me by a nutritionist in London, Petronella Ravenshear, who I think is quite helpful in giving relevant advice on rosacea.
