My doc lowered my Lamictal last week to 50mg due to side effects. He said to call if I am having some issues (high/low emotions) which I am (rapid cycling). I'm going to call today and ask about Topomax and an antidepressent. I really appreciate your telling me about your experiences. I hope that your stress has lessened for you.
I am on 600mg Seroquel/1200mg Lithium/25mg topomax.
I got up to 125mg Topamax-was prescribed for weight loss. I found I was irritable, had some undesirable/bizarre neurlogical symptoms , hair loss (still on 25mg). Being on 25mg I feel alright but I am not losing weight so I wonder, what is the point?
Everyone is different on this stuff. Make sure you give it a chance, but keep track of side effects. I have been on sooooo many meds in the last year and a half, takes awhile to find your cocktail!
