aimees Posted August 30, 2005 Share Posted August 30, 2005 Ok, I did a search for muscle aches caused by Lamictal and I didn't find any threads that answered my questions, so please don't beat me if this has been discussed before!!! I have been taking Lamictal for five weeks. We are titrating up VERY SLOWLY, 25mgs x 2wks, 50mgs x 2wks, and now 75mgs x 2wks, I'm sure you get the pic. I have just noticed in the last three days that my back is KILLING me!! I haven't done anything out of the ordinary and am beginning to wonder if my husband is beating me in the middle of the night. I take 50mgs of Seroquel for sleep each night and I sleep so soundly that I honestly don't think I would wake up if I was beatin'!!! I am also having some chest pains every night when I lie down to go to sleep. Once the chest pains start, I do all I can to deep breath trough it, so I don't get into one of my panic attacks because I am sure I am dying!!! I take all my meds at night about an hour before bed...'round 9:00. Has anyone experienced these sorts of aches and pains from Lamictal? Or should I set up the nanny cam to see if hubby is beatin' me!!! For those that have had the aches, did the they go away as you got up to more therapeutic levels? Also, my moods are all over the place. I'm so irratable and so ready to rip someones head off, I'm obsessing about food 24hrs a day and I'm binging out of f***ing control!!! I am a binge eater and have recently taken to purging!! I've never purged before. Hell, I LOVE my food, so why would I puke it up??? Well, now I'm trying to purge and finding I'm not very good at it, or when I'm not thinking about eating everything in the pantry, I'm thinking about purging!! Of course all of this throws me into the quilty, "I'm a worthless piece of shit", spiral. I'm driving my family and MYSELF absolutely crazy, as if I wasn't already crazy enough. I'm sick of this ultra rapid cycling crap!!! As for my mood fluctuations, I guess I'm just looking for someone to tell me IT GETS BETTER!! Any binge eaters out there get better with just Lamictal?? I can't begin to think about more meds...I'm having such a difficult time adjusting to these!!! I know...boo hoo for me, right!!! Sorry for the rant!! Thanks for any help!! aimee Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
