More med issues!


Recommended Posts

Since my boyfriend told me I look more alive, like "myself" and less drugged without Paxil, I was wondering if I should think of ditching the Lamictal too. This will be the topic of my next Pdoc appointment. Any opinions? I am BP1 w/psychotic symptoms and PTSD.

Let me get this straight...you're BPI, and you're thinking of dumping the one MS you're on? (At least from what I can tell by your signature)

Listen, I think it's great you're feeling so much better without the Paxil! One step at a time, though. Generally speaking, slow steps, too. Yes, talk with your pdoc about this. I suspect he'll say something similar.

Loon-A-TiK:

In the words of an infamous mistranslated Korean instruction booklet:

NOT TO DUMP THE LAMICTAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unless you want to sub it with some Depakote or Depakene.  Otherwise is to risk much non-hilarity.

I would agree that dumping the Lamictal without first adding another MS would probably be a bad idea.  I am actually wanting to go the opposite way, adding an AP to my Lamictal.  For me, Lamictal has helped a lot with depression, but now I have been having more problems with mania which may be exacerbated by the AD effect of Lamictal.  I may also look at another MS, but enough about me.  See the first sentence I wrote and feel free to ignore the rest of this post except for this sentence in case you read from the bottom up.

Yeah, you're right- this was just another of my grand ideas that I tend to come up with when I'm feeling non-whaleshit. My moods bounce quite a bit and I tend to feel that I can somehow control them (with my mind of all things, lol). Spanks for your help!
