I have been back on Lamictal and Trazadone for two weeks now. I am getting sleep because of the Trazadone, but still feeling exhausted for most of the morning. I am getting huge headaches that last most of the day and also having an upset stomach. Woo-Hoo fun times over here! haha

I know it takes time for the meds to kick in, but it seems like the day after I started them my moods went out of control. I have been cycling pretty fast lately...like a different mood every couple of hrs. The other day my husband and I got into a fight with someone we thought was a friend. After that was over, I went and punched a wall and threw patio furniture...just kinda lost it for about an hr. I was shaking I was SOOOO mad! I've learned through out the years to control my temper, so that I don't get that way, but I just lost it...I couldn't control it at all. I don't think it helped that she called me a crazy, pathetic mom, who can't even take care of her own kids and has to be sent to a hospital to get the right kind of help....that hit hard....I know I'm a good mom and I take care of my kids just fine, but I still have doubts sometimes about whether me staying around is going to be better or worse for my kids. Everyone says I'm a great mom and have the best, sweetest, happiest, children in the world, but I still have my doubts because I am having such trouble controlling things right now and because they are seeing that. I hate it when people use this stuff against me. I know it's not my fault for having these problems....but to have someone throw them in my face like that makes me hate this disease that much more. I just want to be normal, not just for myself, but for my family also. That hurt so bad...

I understand that she has problems of her own, alot of depression, but to have someone who has been a friend for years and has seen all my ups and downs, throw all of it in my face, it just hurt. She knows exactly what's been going on, hell she was the one i called when they involuntaryily commited me in the hospital to come take care of my son! She knows I feel bad for putting my family through everything that I have. To have someone who doesn"t know me say something, it wouldn"t hurt so bad, but for her, who knws everything, it just hit home. My husband said the same thing though, to feel sorry for her. Thank you for the kind words though...it is aprecciated.

Does anyone know if these mood swings could be a bad reaction to the meds? Thankx for any help.
