I just started taking 20 mg of escitalopram and 25 mg of lamotogrine (upping dosage slowly) for my mood disorder. I kinda find it interesting that I'm on 20 mg of escitalopram. I feel like a lot of folks take 5 or 10 mg of an ssri while on lamotogrine. I guess I'll see and let my doc know if I feel completely out of it. The interaction checker on here says there is a moderate interaction... Can cause increased tiredness etc. when taken together. Anyone else tried this combo? I'm really hoping it helps!
So I've been on the lamotogrine 25 mg and escitalopram 20 mg for 5 days now and I'm feeling the difference already. The best part is my insatiable cravings I was getting with the citalopram has subsided greatly. I can already feel an energy boost and that I have lost a few pounds. I just need to get myself more active now. Exercise is next on my to do list.
