I was on depakote and xanax for a few months now. Recently I have been gaining weight from the depakote plus it really wasn't helping my mood swings as much as I needed.
Has anybody been on Lamotrigine and how has it worked for you.
This was my Psych doctors new med of choice or me.

Lamictal is one of the meds I take. It's had worked good for me.

"It is not easy to live life sometimes and face the world with a smile when you're crying inside. It takes a lot of courage to reach down inside yourself, hold on to that strength that's still there, and know that tomorrow is a new day with new possibilities. But if you can hold on long enough to see this through, you'll come out a new person - stonger, with more understanding and with new pride in yourself from knowing you made it"       Kathy Obara

I am on lamictal for about 7 weeks now. Its one of my last resorts. I feel it has stopped me from crashing. Hopefully this will be one of my steady meds. I've been playing the med game for over a year now and this is the only thing that seems promising. I wish you all the best.
