My insurance is giving me trouble with one of my meds, Latical (SP?). has anyone just suddenly get dropped from a med? How does the body react to something like that?
Are you having a good day :) or a bad day :(
Either which way glad to meet you. :D

I've had to change meds several times, and mostly because one is very expensive/doesn't work/side effects are bad.

I have not had major reactions switching from one to another.  If you are on a higher dose of a med, then you should talk to your Dr. about weaning from one and starting another med.

Lamictal is a very expensive med, and I did not have insurance when I was taking it for about 2 years and mostly paid for it out of pocket, or got samples when I could.  So I am sorry that your insurance wont cover it.

There are a few other meds that also work as mood stabilizers, so don't despair. 

Best Wishes!
