I have recently been having problems with lightheadedness. In fact, went into the hospital for that, muffled hearing and a horrible headache. They did an EEG and ruled out any seizure-related reasons for this. They said that I was disgustingly healthy. Doc thinks it's likely medication toxicity. She suspected Ambien and cut my dose in half or suggested Trazodone or Benadryl as alternatives. I think it's likely a combination of too much Ambien and the Trileptal/Lamictal combination as we recently increased the Trileptal.
I don't want to take Trazadone because it's an antidepressant and I've had problems with Prozac in the past. I tried Benadryl and it did nothing. My doc has a plan to eliminate the Lamictal over about a month's time.
My question here is whether other people have experienced similar problems while on Lamictal and/or Trileptal.
