Hi everyone, I just joined today, I found this on a search for "Lamictal". I'm 45, I've been taking Prozac forever, 15 years maybe. 3 years ago I moved from NYC to Arizona, and my new doctor determined that I was bi-polar. That's the first I've heard of that...........I do not have manic episodes where I stay awake all night, just the opposite, I could sleep for weeks. I love to sleep, and I'm afraid I'm going to sleep my life away, and that I'm missing out on so much. I've messed up many wonderful opportunities with my alcoholism and addiction. I've been mostly clean since moving here. I was on Prozac and Klonapin (I know it's addicting, but I've never abused it) and now I'm on Lexipro, Klonapin, Wellbutrin, Serequel, and Lamictal. I cut off the Lamictal about two months ago without telling my doctor. Because I was/am taking so much, so tired all the time, I thought getting rid of one would help. I have so little energy. Oh, and 4 -ish months ago I talked him into prescribing Adderall, 20 mgs. This helps, but after work I still am exhausted. I called my psychiatrist in NYC, and he said if I feel a difference, more depressed, then GET back on the Lamictal. I was trying to look up Lamictal to see if it causes fatigue, and found this forum. I'll stop writing now, because I know a lot of us get distracted and stop reading. Does anyone relate?
