Don't drink it: the chemical crosses the blood brain barrier and could be a secret cause of the explosion of mental illness today. The other artificial sweeteners are not as bad but still bad. I drink unsweetened but flavored seltzer water mostly.
Do you have any citations from mainstream medical journals to back up your assertion that aspartame is a source of mental illness? We deal in facts here, not Internet-fueled scaremongering.

Areas of Expertise: How to navigate the forums (FAQ) and Medication Wiki, and get the answers you need; Lamictal/lamotrigine questions; drug interactions; finding and evaluating sources of medical information. I also know a good bit of general information about the conditions Crazy Meds addresses, and the medications used to treat them.
Please do not send me requests for medical advice via private message. I answer such questions only in the forums.
