The psychologist put me on lamictal about
a month ago. I've read up on this drug and I'm not comfortable taking it. I took it for 1 month then went off of it myself. The Dr. wants me to continue to take it. He has diagnosed me with a mood disorder. And this is supposed to be a mood stablizer. I also take zoloft and klonopon. I've been on both of these for about
15yrs. My reluctance about
taking this medication is, it is given for so many diferent reasons. Epilepsy,Bipolar,depression,mood disorders. Also , when I started taking it I noticed I started to get acne and very dry skin on my face. I did'nt like how it made me feel either. It was almost like I could'nt feel anything emotionally. I'm going to talk to him about
putting me on something else. Although i don't like the idea of having to take a medicine for a mood disorder. I've read up on this too, and I still don't quite understand exactly what that is. lol! I wanted to know if anyone has taken this medication, and if so how did it work for them and is it safe to take.
Any response would be appreciated. Thank You!
