I have read about all the rashes and side effects has anyone on this med had any of these awful side effects. It sort of puts me off even wanting to start but I do so want to feel better. I am all for it one moment and scared the netxt pretty much as my bipolar moods go. Please hellpppppppp!!!
Hi korkie. I'm pretty new here too.I have bp also.With me, prozac made me have blackouts, after taking them for about 2 weeks.I've never heard of rivotril, But I currently take lamictal.It helps me with mood swings.I had rapid mood swings.I still do sometimes, but the lamictal does help.I also take seroquel at bedtime, it really helps me sleep through the night. I could hardly sleep at all before.By the way, they replaced the prozac to celexa, and I haven't had any side effects.It seems to be helping me anyway. All these kinds of meds have some side effects.It just depends on the person. I have been on a lot of different meds over the last 2 years. You just tell you dr. the truth about any side effects so he can adjust the meds. Good luck.
Hi Korkie - I'm on 80 mg prozac and the lamictal worked really well with it. I really noticed the difference when I had to drop the lamictal because of a rash - turned out the rash was not related to the drug so I am starting up on it again. I feel so much better with prozac and lamictal working together. Haven't heard of rivotril, but I do take xanax. The rash is rare but seems to happen more with the lamictal generic vs the brand. Hope this helps.
