|"Actually, I loved using Splenda. Tasted much better than other artificial sweeteners. However, recently--before having read anything negative about it--I had increased my daily use of it. For a week or two, I have been having very brief flashes of dizziness when getting out of a chair, etc.
I also am a writer--and though I cannot specifically tie this to the Splenda--I have been unable to focus at work for several days, and now am terribly squeezed on several deadlines. I am going to quit using it and see where it gets me."
On 4 February 2004, we received an update from P.P.:
"I wrote for 8.5 hours yesterday--turning out one press release and one by-lined piece. My focus seems to be returning.
I will update you later."
On 1 March 2004, we received another update from P.P.:
"And just to let you know as a post script--those symptoms all seem to have stopped."
Thank you P.P. for sharing your story with our visitors.
