My Dr has started me on lamictril ( Generic ) starting tomorrow..for severe depression... and i am scared too death of it..as with all meds... but especially this one. Can anyone ease my mind before my first dose lol..i really need to try it to get relief from this depression... Thanks :)
Hi, Dawn! I can understand your fear of medications, but it's a risk ~vs~ benefit situation. Would you rather live your life in a black cloud of darkness and hopelessness or take control of your life and try a new approach that could have you happy and functional? A life like a *normal* human being?
Just for the record, like JohnC, I took Lamictal for many years with no short or long term side effects and it was very effective in controlling my Major Depressive Disorder.
I'd highly recommend you give it a try!
Best regards and I wish you good luck and a happy life. Wildcat
