Re: Help - yet another thread on Lamictal dosing. Chloe

Hi Chloe,
Now I'm kind of butting in ... I was wondering what meds you're on, if you don't mind me asking? I know Lithium is one, from your posts with Emme. Like you and Emme, I have grown so sensitive to meds it's kind of ridiculous, and I've had to try microdoses of lots of things, but still haven't found the right combo for me. I'm taking a break from Lamictal and Serzone right now -- I was going to try to get pregnant so I wanted to get off meds, but I'm not sure I'll be able to do so (I am still taking 0.5 mg. of Klonapin a day which seems to help keep the agitation at bay.)

Also, are you the Chloe who takes flax seed oil? If so, I printed out one of your posts about it, and I actually bought some the other day, but I'm afraid to try it. It seems there can be some adverse reactions to it (JohnX got permanent facial pain from it, I believe), and I did try it a few years ago in a capsule form and it made me quite sick (very nautious and fatigued). Would there be a difference from the actual cold pressed flax seed oil and the capsules as far as side effects go?

(If you're not the same Chloe, just disregard this part!)

Thanks!
cindy

So I am on small doses of 6 meds, to minimize side effects, but potentiate good effects. It's all chemisty! Finding the smallest dose that gives the greatest benefit. You did tell me you are a chemist, didn't you?
