So I recently got off of Klonopin, and was put on Lamictal instead. This has counteracted some of the W/D symptoms to good effect. I want to get off of the Lamictal once the worst of this is over at about the 3-4 month mark. Any suggestions besides the obvious taper? Also how long does Lamictal W/D typically last? I want to get off of the Lamictal within a month or so come mid-March/April.
I am bipolar II and am currently taking Trileptal as a mood stabilizer along with Lamictal, loxapine, and Aplenzin. Has anyone taken this extended release version of Trileptal for BP?
I was recently prescribed Wellbutrin to go along with Lamotrigine (300 mg). I take Xanax, as needed. I was desperate. The depression, well, many of you know what that's like and how much can begin to fall apart/pile up around you. Just wondering - Anyone with BP have stories of experience on these two medications alone? Mainly curious. I'm trying it out either way. Years ago, I was on quite a cocktail of meds, but I try my hardest to limit them now...until I can't. It has been taking me a good three hours to be able to lift my body out of bed each morning, among other depression issues. Something had to change.
patpatkimbo posted a topic in Anticonvulsants / Mood Stabilizers - Bodies A-Twitchin', Moods A-Switchin'I am thinking about talking to my pdoc on how to simplfy my med cocktail by getting off Abilify, Thorazine, Lamictal and Buspar to be on Lithium, Seroquel and Effexor. I currently take 50mg of Effexor to manage my IBS with the reccomendation of my GP and my pdoc prescribes it. From what I have been reading Seroquel is good for Gerneralized Anxiety (which I have) and insomnia (which I have) and for bipolar depression while the Lithium is good for mania. Around what dosage would Seroquel and Lithium be useful for my problems (Bipolar I, GAD, Insomnia) and still have the least amount of side effects?
