- lamictal, tegretol, anxiety, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, doctor
So I went to the psychiatrist to seek help for my recent panic anxiety and after a nearly 2 hour appointment prescribed me tegretol and lamictal. What is this going to do? This is unlike anything I've had in the past and I don't know what to say to get the right help, it seems like these are bipolar meds, so he must have determined that's my diagnosis. He gave me zyprexa to use for panic episodes but it just makes me sleep for 2 days, so I don't know what to do... I'm not seeing him for another two or three weeks.
Often times you will have a disturbance of your sleep cycle when you start or stop these sorts of medications. If you are still having trouble in a week or two, give him a call.
As to how you will react and what it will do, it should help even you out and decrease your panic symptoms. That doesn't mean this first combination witll work, sometimes it takes 20 meds to find the right cocktail.
Hi there I was perscribed lamictal nearly 2 years ago after long search for something to make me feel better... wow it worked not sure why but after 3-4 days I felt a tremendous difference in mood attitude and felt like living life again! Who new? Give it a try don't think it's dangerous but I do suggest one at a time so you know what's doing what and give it a real chance. It works!
ask for xanax, thats what i take for my panic attacks, its wonderfull
In all honesty that's exactly how I felt. I was recently prescribed Lamitical and Propranolol three days ago at my first visit to a new Doctor. She has 40 years of experience with these things and I have a hard time trusting ne one. I am prescribed it for my Bipolar 1 disorder. Read the reviews on this site this seems to be the best mood stabilizer on the market. I have ocd tendency when it comes to what meds im on and have read a ton on this one. As for my distrust w my new Doctor the Propranolol is usually used to lower high blood pressure. Unless im manic or having a panic attack (I lately very often do, hospitalities for a heartbeat of 167 3 weeks ago) my blood pressure is said always to be that of a babies. There are SO MANY other issues that these meds help us with, try to trust your doctor.
Ik I don't have high blood pressure! I am on Xanax 4mgs a day and propranolol is supposed to (at least for me) not allow me to have such severe panic attacks or take such a high dose of such an addictive drug as I've had addictions in the past. Sorry so long just wanted to explain the long road that I've come to realize im on and it seems ur on too! Good luck friend! Your at the rite place :)
my understanding is that Lamictal and Tegretol should not be taken together, please ask your physician.
