I don't think I should be feeling this way. On day 2 of lamictal, I've gone from feeling stable, to incredibly depressed. I canceled a doctor's appointment (unrelated to the BP) because I can't seem to get out of my pajamas. I can't concentrate and I just want to curl up in bed and sleep. I don't even feel like moving. I just want the world to go away for a while. cry

Steph -
I am so sorry that you're feeling so bad. I don't know anything about lamictal, but if you weren't warned you might feel this way you should probably call the doc who prescribed it. Maybe it's a normal reaction, many meds I've taken made me feel horrible at first, but when it comes to your health, it's better safe than sorry.
Hang in there, and let us know what your doc says if you call her/him.

Hubby came home early to me curled up on the bathroom floor sobbing. Called pdoc and she said it is NOT a normal reaction to lamictal and said to stop it immediately and not to leave me alone. Not sure what's next. I feel like crap. And I'm kinda embarrassed.

You don't have to be embarrassed! It's not your fault if the meds didnt work properly for you. You are trying - and you'll get there. Just hang in. I'm really glad that your husband called the doctor. Maybe it won't take long for the meds to filter out of your system. Hopefully, you'll feel better then. If you can, try to give yourself a break... this isn't your fault.

The good news is there's lots of other things to try. I'm so glad you called your doc. Feel better soon!

I feel exactly the same way. I had a crisis moment two weeks ago and haven't been able to swing out of it. I recall this depression associated with September, as days get shorter, less light, school starting back, school was a hugh problem for me, I always felt "less than", and even though I graduated, it took all the life out of me and left me traumatized. I tried Lamictal, some years back, and didn't do well. Stopped after 2-3 days. Meds affect everybody differently.
Hypothyroidism, Fibromyalgia, Facet Joint Syndrome, High Blood Pressure, menopause, Migraines, Chest Pain, Anxiety and Depression/BiPolar II
Synthyroid .075mg., estradiol.5 mgs., Amyltriptilene, 100mgs, bedtime, Tylenol 3 PRN (six-eight, daily), Valium 7.5mgs. daily prn. Flexeril, prn (not so helpful), Zoloft,150mgs., Zomig approx. 12 per month, prn., Meds for High Blood Pressure, vary.

I've been feeling this way for a week now. I don't want to get off the couch, I want to stay in my pj's all day long, I don't want to shower and get ready, I ccurled up in a ball last night and cried myself to sleep (when I finally fell asleep at 4 a.m.) and just don't feel happy at all. I chase all men away because I'm fine one minute and then I expect too much attention/affection and then snap when I don't get it. It's tough, trust me, I know.
