I was given this combination to day.  I am supposed to start baking down on my lamicta, fromm 100 to 50mg.  I'm having really bad mood swings.  I have taken Zoloft in the past but can't remember if it helped.  Any one use this combination of med?  Any help would be appreciated.confused

Why are you backing down on Lamictal?  That's a pretty low dose anyway.  Are you weaning off of it?
I was on Zoloft and it caused bad mood swings for me.  I think it is pretty typical response since it is an SSRI.

Hi Jenkies,

Welcome to HealingWell. Hope you find some support and information here.

I'm also perplexed that you're lowering your dose of lamictal if you're having mood swings. Are you seeing a psychiatrist?
