Of meds. Now dr prescribed 150 MG wellbutrine and just started me on lamotrigine. Does anyone have experience with this lamotrigine helping TRD?
I do! In fact it's my "dream team." The first combo that worked for me. I was on the Wellbutrin just like you, though I was on it for several years, and what happened is. it started to not work as well, so Lamotrigine was introduced, and I think the best word to describe my change was motivation. That, and a change in irritation or anger. I had a lot of issues with being quick to be hurt or angry but I've lived a really hard life and it seems that no matter what I did or how many times I went through long-term counseling, I could never heal fully or stop being angry/expecting the worst. In my particular case, not yours, my anger was an expression of bipolar. I didn't know that anger could be the equivalent of mania. It completely changed my life. I felt it start to work immediately, but my doctor was pretty aggressive with raising me up, quite a bit more aggressive than I've seen other doctors be. What sort of questions do you have? You do know to watch for the rash or peeling skin, right?
I never had major depression before, so not being able to function properly for two years is very hard. I'm 54 years old. I have daily anxiety that's crippling to be honestly and none of the benzos help much. I pray that this works and I can find relief. I can't work or care for my family at all. Life kinda sucks. I've been in and out of the hospital a few times over the past 2 years. I miss enjoying life so much. I used to be happy and content and very high functioning. I'm scared
