LikeMinded Posted February 21, 2007 Share Posted February 21, 2007 hey y'all -- I was put on Lamictal after I had one "hypomixed" state... I call it "Brief Reactive Mixed State" in my case... in reaction to being fired in November '05. SI, drinking , swearing like a sailorman (something I don't normally do) you name it. For about a week or two. I almost got kicked out of the house I was living in. Then I was back to normal spontaneously (started Lamictal a week after; pdoc thought this was going to happen again). So far, there's been little to no hypomanic activity since (though that may be due to the Lamictal itself). However, I'm worried that Lamictal is worsening the cognitive (esp. verbal) issues related to my brain rot problem. Plus one less med is probably a good thing if I end up on an antiviral cocktail for brain rot. I'm on 400mg now (that's where I saw an AD effect), and I'm willing to eschew the AD effect, since Cymbalta+Remeron is powerful enough. It's just the mood stabilization I'm worried about, and I don't want to go into another mixed state, be it brief or otherwise. Lamictal at 400mg never controlled my explosions at work (fortunately, my boss knows better now and has been non-triggery towards me the past few months). I will also discuss the matter with my pdoc tomorrow afternoon, but meanwhile, I'd like to hear from y'all some advice and/or experiences. Thanks in advance! --fous Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
