revlow Posted June 26, 2006 Share Posted June 26, 2006 I know from everything I've read that sunshine can make a BP hyper. It has absolutely the opposite effect on me. A week ago I made a trip that included about 12 hours of sitting in a car within 3 days. The car was air conditioned, I slathered on sunscreen every few hours, etc. And I wasn't doing the driving, so no work there. When I got home, I slept for 2 days. I'm not kidding. 'Round the clock. Yesterday, I had a day out. As usual I avoided the sun when I could, slathered on sunscreen, etc. I was in buildings much of the time but was out all day in the city, not at home with the shades drawn. And now all day I've been completely wiped out. I've always hated summer, hate heat, burn easily, and so forth. I mean, every spring I'd start to dread summer. I've always tended to get depressed in the summer, but this is ridiculous. Just wondering if this happens to other people, the being wiped out the day or two afterwards? Also wondering if this has to do with Lamictal. This is the 1st summer I've been on an AC. I know we all should avoid a lot of sun being BP, whether it makes you hyper or not. Here's yet another reason, in case you hadn't heard: Lamotrigine-Induced Rash After Sun Exposure. Any comments appreciated. revlow Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
