I am so ready to turn my life around and feel better. I have been on many many many different anti depressants that have either caused more problems or the side effects were so bad I couldn't handle it. Has anyone had luck with this combination or with Lamictal in general? I've heard great things about it. I am so up and down with my moods that I fear one day I'm going to be alone
Hi, mgrant! Lamictal is a great medication for Bipolar ll mood swings, but be careful using an antidepressant because they can provoke manic episodes in some people. If you're primarily depressed, Latuda is another good option with Lamictal.
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better soon! You are not alone! Wildcat
I am on Lamictal and fluoxetine for bipolar 2. This is my 9th week and I can tell things are getting brighter. Just stick with it. It will surely make a difference.
I had great results with lamictal. I don't currently take it though due to a recent hospital visit for an unrelated issue. I would recommend trying it out on a low dose (even if doc suggests a higher one), because you can always increase it if you need to. And why not stick with a low dose if it works for you. Just don't be afraid if you feel less emotional. After living so much of my life in a hyper emotional state it was a little scary not to have that 'crazy' feeling hanging over me all the time. I hope this helps. Good Luck.
I take Lamictal and Prozac together
I'm only up to 200mg of lamictal and 20mgs of prozac. I just started the prozac and I still have a ways to go on the lamictal. I'm starting to notice a little difference. I would stick with it if you can tolerate any side effects that you may have.
