Hi everyone...  after many years of suffering from anxiety (constant worry about my kids health, if they have a headache, it's high blood pressure, or if they are tired, they have diabetes...  always a horrible outcome, in my mind)  My kids are 20 & 18 so that's how long it's been going on.  I have been on you name it, meds.  I just started lamictal 2 days ago.  Any imputs on this med???  I have been so down for so long, I am praying this works..... turn

Lamictal was a good drug and work for me for a short time.  However when my Pdoc wanted to increase the dose I did not agree to go any higher as I take so many meds and this med can have serious side effects that I chose to wean off of it.
I do think if you know the risks and benefits then choosing to try Lamictal is a good choice.

Lamictal was very effective for my husband, he took it with effexor and the difference was amazing.

As you know, everyone is different but I hope this one works for you.

Take care
