Well, today is my first day of increasing my dosage for both Lamictal and Celexa...Doc has me doubling both meds for the next two weeks. I'm still not feeling anything all that wildly different except for some pretty bad shakiness in my hands. I'm really hoping this passes. I'm a music teacher and with that comes the need to play piano and guitar. Thankfully it's summer break but I'm a little worried about if it continues when school starts back up again. Could make for an interesting situation. Since I started the meds at the same time, I don't know which drug would be causing the shakes. Anyone else have this problem with either of these drugs? Anyone know of any other side effects from the drugs? Thanks!

How long have you been on the current dose? Two things: meds can take several weeks to work and side effects can go away with time on the dose you end up on. I always tell my pdoc when I am having side effects....I hope you start feeling better soon and don't be afraid to talk to pdoc with any questions or concerns with the meds. That is what they are there for.

I don't think skakiness is a normal Lamictal side effect.
