Im on Depakote, never diagnosed with bipolar, but PTSD and anxiety. I take 325 mg of Depakote a day and a total of .75 a day of klonopin. I have angry spells, times when I want to just die, and depression. My mom is passing and my husband has cancer. So, I have stress! My doctor wanted to start me on 25mg every other day of lamotrigine. And he will see me in two weeks. I'm uplifted and hopeful with some stories and the others scare me. I'm 44, and I take a beta blocker, atenolol 25mg each morning. Can anyone tell me what they feel about this? I'm over my head with stress, generally don't do well with antidepressants and this was my therapists suggestion. Thank you.
