Hello all...I posted a few weeks ago when I had just started the mix of Neurontin and Lamictal,
I was in a manic state then -- instead of crashing into a deep depression I slowly entered this
unfamiliar balanced state. I am at 50 mgs of Lamictal, pdoc wants to put me at 150 - 200 when
it is time. My ADD has also been addressed, took Strattera before and it did nothing, now I am
on Adderall. Now I can focus, I slowed down and actually lost a couple of pounds which I do
not mind. I want more than anything to live a happy, productive life. I am not afraid of meds,
the proof for me was being in a psych ward and watching a severely psychotic woman being
held down to receive her meds through a syringe due to her refusal to take it...in 2 days she was
a normal person. I was amazed. SSRI's did not work ever for me, in fact maybe made me worse.
I pray for all of you out there, I know the pain that we all have gone through or going through.
I have been better to get along with --- not driving hubby crazy, and throwing fits. I wonder
if I will ever be able to function as a productive member of society. I should give myself a break
I guess but I feel as life has passed me by at 33. Mental illness affects every area of our lives.
God Bless all!!

Boomer, so glad to hear that things are going well and that you seem to be on your way with the new medication. It's a funny feeling when you finally have some peace in your life and you're not struggling to be stable - its almost foreign at times and makes you have to step back and figure out how to do it all again. Its all part of the process - baby steps and I wish you all the best.

Take care,
Putter
