Hi A girl named Maria,
I had good luck with lamictal too for a long time.
Just be totally honest with your doctor and let him know what you would like to try and why. Have honest discussion. It's a two way street. There are plenty of medication options out there, so if one isn't working for you there are others for your pdoc to try.
Wishing you wellness!
I'm glad that your pdoc is working with you and I really hope your new meds work out well for you.
I think it's great that your able to start them on your break from school so that you can get adjusted to it.
Best of luck. ~Happy Holidays~
