Am 66 female healthy takin LAM for bi polar. Fell 5 weeks ago, have been tripping a lot. Sustained concussion. Doctors think it could be the LAM. Thanks.
I have Bi Polar also and have been on a number of medications. The main types they have put me on are antidepressants, mood stabilizers, certain drugs for seizures and a typical antipsychotics. As far as I know Lamictal is a mood stabilizer. These drugs slow down the brain when it's manic. They are known to cause side effects such as shuffling walk, slurred speech, and general fatigue. This Is a strong drug and sometimes can't be prescribed to people over a certain age. I would check with your doctor and ask questions.
