I have never been on lamictal,but have read numerous posts from members that tell us it works.
Most meds can take 4-6 weeks to take full effect. The side effects are different for everyone. That is just the case with these types of meds.
If your doctor thinks that you should be on them,then they obviously are worried about you.
What is the worst thing that can happen? It doesn't work then you go off of it and that is that. But you do need to give it time to start feeling the advantages.
Now,meds do not take all of the pain away,they help with depression but what you have to do is find out what triggered the depression in the first place and deal with that the best you can.
Are you in counseling? Do you have family that you can talk to?
Please stay strong and keep us posted.
