redface  Hi Everyone:
I have noticed, since I began taking Paxil and Lamictal in Jan. 09 tat, well, I don't have many emotions going on.  It kind of causes a sadness in me.  I was wondering if anyone else experiences this?  Also, maybe, since the meds balance me out, neither up nor down much, that I am "missing" the old manic/hypo-manic intense emotions I used to feel?? I was like that for so many many years because I wasalways mis-diagnoses and never had the right med.  I'm doing better in my life really but I just can't FEEL much.  confused

I wouldn't call that alright. I would let your doc know. It could be your meds are over-sedating you a bit.
