addbp2 Posted January 18, 2007 Share Posted January 18, 2007 I started taking lamictal for a recently diagnosed BP2 (at age 39 I had just been taking celexa for depression but now they say I am bp2) Anyway, they are supposedly treating the 'real' problem of bp2 now. I am up to 250mg of lamictal half in the morning and half in evening. I now have extreme depression and anxiety while they are trying to get the 'right' dose of lamictal ... so I am on 10mg zyprexa also. Without zyprexa I am a real mess. Could it be that these extreme feelings of depression, despair and not being able to enjoy or look forward to anything .. are caused by the lamictal? I mean I look back at my last 39 years and as I cry at night I wonder 'why is it that now that I am being treated for bp2 with lamictal I am feeling the most desperate I have ever felt in my life?' Keep in mind that I have had career problems for the past 5 years and it might just be peaking now. Maybe it is just me that is causing the problem. But I am tempted to get off of lamictal. But that could be a long process. Also, I do see that lamictal helps my anger problems. Any feedback about your negative experiences with lamictal? I know some of you have had great luck, but is there any negative. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
