... 1500 mg?
Lamictal - Hi, I am bipolar- diagnosed back in 84 -taking work off today-not feeling well. I take?
Added 13 Nov 2013:
I transitioned from nefazodone to lamictal over 3 wks. Now solely on 100 mg lamictal for 3 wks, also take 1500 Divalproex and 1 mg clonazepam. After about 2 wks at 75-100 mg lmctl. I felt great, better than I have in my whole life. Now have been at 100 mg for about 2 wks. the feeling is gone and I am back to where I was before. Is there any hope that I can get it back?
That is an awful lot of Lamictal. Max recommended dose is around 400mgs in divided dose.
How long have you been on both? They are not typically prescribed together because there is a major drug interaction between them.
Poppe13... You seem like a kind sincere gentleman. Your are safe to ask questions and respond as you wish. You can even answer other people's questions. This is a great forum with great people. Lots of nurses and medical staff in here.
What do you do for activities outside of the home? I know the more I do fir people the better my depression is. I choose to not medicate because the insurance will not pay for the only medicine that helps me. Have you thought of writing a book about your and life stories? Or volunteering some where? Just questions on things that help me in times that I also struggle.
