I normally post on the BiPolar board, but figured u guys might know more.....:
about 4 weeks ago my pdoc reduced my Lamictal from 200mg daily to 100mg daily due to severe anxiety. He also added .50.g of Risperdal daily for anxiety. Within 48 hours, I started getting horrible headaches, just terrible pain from ear to ear, all across the top of my head, and about 70% of the time I had nausea also.
I called him and he put me on Fiorinal, which is a tension headache medication, to take for the headaches.
Two weeks later (two weeks ago) he INcreased my Lamictal back to 200mg daily and took me off the Risperdal, thinking maybe my headaches were caused by the change in medication. I have been on Lamictal since June 25th of this year and had NO problems until now.
Now, I am still getting the headaches. Twice in the past 2 weeks I thought about driving to ER - the Fiorinal doesn't even help any more, I also bought Sudafed, thinking it might be Sinus - but that didn't work either. It is like a constant headache, subsiding a bit every few days.
I do have an appointment tomorrow with my PCP for the headaches but wondered if anyone else has experienced this?? I am a bit scared.......
