My nurse practitioner just increased my lamictal. I am wondering how long until my mood evens out. It is making me have very angry thoughs, ruminating thoughts. I can't stand myself. I can't get out of my own mind. I am extremely borded and want to do nothing. I am depressed.

Learning 2 Deal,

How long have you been on the lamictal? Lamictal needs to be increased very slowly and it gets into your system very slowly. Usually it takes several weeks to see a difference. It's probably not the med making you have those thoughts, but your disorder. Time to call your therapist in for a counseling session.

Well, I didn't call the therapist yet. I did get out of the house today with the family. That really helped my mood but I did get a nasty sunburn. Still it was fun.
