I've been taking Lamictal for about 18 months and now. Since my previous psychiatrist died, I obviously had to find a new doctor. The one I'm seeing now has decided to add Lexapro to the mix. My question: is anyone else on a Lexapro/Lamictal combo? I don't know how I'm going to feel after I begin taking it, and I've read horrorrr stories about trying to wean off once they're on. Apparently it's addictive (or dependant?) even though it's not a narc.
Thanksgiving is a total blur. My doctor suddenly retired and I ran out of Lamictal. Not knowing this was the problem of sudden anxiety, tics, thrashing, nausea, cold/hot symptoms. I thought I forgot to take my pain meds. I couldn't get an appt for a week due to Thanksgiving. If this is the same effect Lexapro will have, I'm afraid to try it.
Any answers/comments will be appreciated.
Due to the very sparse subscribership,, I may take this question to an alternative web site. But where-ever... I need answers. I should have started this already.
