Re: Lamictal side effects SCFields

I have a dry mouth too, but I think it's due more to the Topamax I take, rather than the Lamictal. You're probably going to think this is weird, but since I started taking Lamictal, I can't back down the driveway straight anymore. I can't stand on one foot to put on my pants without falling over. I mentioned this in passing to my doctor and he wasn't the least bit surprised - apparently it changes one's perception or something like that. Memory problems are an ongoing thing with me. My doc chalks it up to depression taking its toll. He's pretty blunt and says I won't get back my long-term memory. I've come to accept that, but I could use a memory of the here and now. It's very annoying to take a shower, forget how far I've washed and end up having to start over again. I spend a lot of time writing notes to myself because I can't trust myself to remember much. I will be brushing my teeth and think of something I need to write down. By the time I finish brushing and get a pen, I've forgotten what it was I wanted to write down. I feel like such an idiot.

My girlfriend is on Prozac and she definitely suffers from reduced libido, as is well advertised (at least, she says it isn't me!). I know that is a different MOA.
