  MY husband is taking 20 mg of prozac in the morning and 200 mg of Lamictal at night.The lamictal seems to be doing good. He has trouble getting going in the mornings. He has to have at least 2 hours to get up and get his mind stimulated before he can go to work. Just wondering if anyone else has this problem.

i'm on different meds and find that i have a hard time waking up also. like i'm groggy. for awhile. the sunshine helps me and one cup of coffee if i'm desperate. but i try not to do that. but yeah i'm groggy for about an hour or two in the morning. just depends on how much i am moving around. and sometimes a shower about a half hour after i wake up helps too.
I am bipolar, have social anxiety, panic attacks w/agoraphobia , diabetes, asthma and high blood pressure. Life is short but i am not.

I was on Lamictal for about 2 years in the past, and I needed at least an hour to be functional.  I needed a little more to be trully awake, I loved my caffeine and that is the only thing that got me through.

  Thanks for your replies. I work at night and am so ready to go to bed in the morning, but I have to stay up to make sure my husband gets up. However, I am thankful he is working most days. I hope all is going well with you all..
