Hi!
This is my first post but I have found so many helpful!!!
 
I got put on Lamactil today to try to combat my major depressive disorder (no manic) first of all has anyone gained weight with it? I am so sensitive to wieght gain and side effects I am so worried. How does lamictal make you feel?
 
I have been on about 6 or 7 cocktails with the only success being cymbalta which gave me health-compromising side-effects and the most horrible withdrawals. Oh what a road it has been.
 
Still in the throws of depression so today my doctor decided to put my on lamictal and ween off celexa (i am also on wellbutrin).
 
I guess I really dont know what i am asking but if anyone has any info i would greatly appreciate it! I just wanat to get better :)

Hi Simone,

I am not familiar with these medications and the side effects, but wanted to welcome you to HealingWell. I think you will find that this is a good place to come and let things out. Or seek support. Everybody here is so kind and compassionate.

I hope that you continue to post. I think that you will be happy that you joined and somebody will come along who has been on these medications who can help you. I hear that cymbalta is a hard med to come off of. I take effexor and it is also hard. I also take xanax and abilify. So far they have all worked well for me.

I hopw that you have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen

I've been taking Lamictal for about 6 weeks, I've had no weight gain. I can't really explain how I "feel" on it because I'm also taking another med but it's definately made a difference! I also haven't had any side effects. Hope this helps you and I wish you the best with this new med.
