I have severe migrains and suffer from mood swings, my Dr. prescribed lamictal along with Nardil that I have been taking for over a year. I do not suffer from Bi polar, or depression. I'm wondering if anyone else is treated with Nardil for migraines and Lamical for mood swings??
chrylhuff, You use the terms 'mood swings' and 'migraines' in the present tense, so it sounds like you still suffer from these conditions... do you?
He would have prescribed lamictal for the mood swings, simply because you have mood swings, or perhaps without saying, he may think you have bipolar disorder.
Nardil is used for 'atypical' (unusual type of), depression. There is no indication that either of these drugs treat migraines.
After a year on these two meds, how are you? Do you still have migraines? Is it possible he may have thought stress and depression were bringing on the migraines? I say depression because you mentioned mood swings.
This therapy sounds kind of unusual, but is it working?
I'd be really interested in knowing.
