I am 30 years old and after many years of suffering, I am finally trying medication for the first time (alongside many positive lifestyle and behavioral changes I have made and continue to work on. I feel a lot of fear and anxiety starting this med. I feel hopeful that it can help me, but today i took my first dose of Lamictal 25mg and it has made me exhausted. Is this normal? I am in an aggressive accelerated course learning how to code and I can't focus on the lecture or coursework when I am this tired. Will this subside soon? I really want to feel better and I am also scared to death.
