... this cocktail of drugs?
I just added lithium to my lamictal, and risperdone cocktail. Lamictal and risperdone weren't working anymore. So the idea is to switch slowly to lithium and then go off the other two. It's been 3 weeks and I've already gone down on the lamictal with no problems while increasing the lithium. I plan on trying to eliminate the risperdone as well, but one thing at a time. My doctor is very hopeful that this will work given how well I'm doing. Getting the dosage right for each med is critical! When I started going up on the lithium but hadn't come down yet on the lamictal I began clenching my jaws really bad and became very fidgety. So I started to go down on the lamictal and was fine. I was just on too much medication at too high doses.
