Guest Guest_zsepthenne_* Posted October 17, 2007 Share Posted October 17, 2007 After three weeks of some sort of hell I finally get my hands on Lamactil! I've had easier times scoring street drugs damn! ? My rotten county pdoc is on med leave, so they kick me over to "med clinic" complete with someone passing out punch and coffee? The fill-in dr. tells me he can't switch me from Lithium to lamactil, doesn't give a reason really other than county bureaucracy. So after an failed Er trip, I finally get it from my primary doc. SIGH. So My doc said to start at 25 mg for two weeks then titrate up. I think I'm going to do 12.5 for a week and then go up, I reaaallllllyyy want this to work. I'm so fat from 1 1/2yr of Lithium that I'm utterly depressed. I know this is all part of the medication-merry-go-round-with-russian-roulette-feature, I'm just tired. I have dosed my Lith down to 300mg, am wondering if i should just discontinue, or do an every other day thing? Also, Lamactil at night, or day? I'll appreciate any info, the doc I saw today is internal medicine so he's flying a little solo too. At least I didn't have to go inpatient! Yea! Seems to be Lamactil month....
