I use two packages of Splenda a day. Has anyone noticed an increase in migraines from it?

I haven't had any patients report this (yet). I have had some patients have headaches from aspartame, and some from the other artificial sweeteners.

This varies a lot from patient to patient, and you really need to keep a food and headache diary to sort this out.

to be safe I have cut out all artificial sweeteners as I know I am sensitive to them (sooo painful cuz I love diet cream soda!)
