Hi Laura,
Thanks for asking. I'm doing crummy. All the naturopathic treatments helped for a while and then I went back to work because of financial havoc. First time in 1-1/2 years and I lasted 1 week before having to take off sick - I felt horribly ill and my brain was frozen. I'll try again next week cause I desperately need the money, but don't think it's good for me in my present condition.

I am SO GLAD you sent me this post and so very happy that you are doing well on Lamictal. I have an appt with my pdoc today and I am out of ideas and so obviously is he. I was going to tell him that I've decided to just live with these awful symptoms because there's no hope in meds for me. I was also tempted to tell him to take a flying leap. Our 20 minute visits every 8 weeks are ludicrous. I've reduced Remeron to basically a homeopathic dose because it wasn't helping and all I'm on right now is lithium and lorezapam. Can't lose weight, feel blasted and wired, crying alot, and I'm losing faith pretty fast. I will tell him I want to try Lamictal and Xanax instead of lorezapam. I've been on all the other ADs but perhaps this combo will be different. Guess I'm not out of hope completely. If you have time, I'd love to hear a more detailed account of how Lamictal's helped you vs. other things you've been on. I'll let you know how it goes. Many blessings to you. - Barbara
