Lamictal + Lithium, honeymoon is OVER!!!

Posted by Maximus on November 2, 2002, at 14:19:48

Hello guys,

My dx: bipolar II.

I was "virtually" cured. I thought i was. I had been in an euthymic (normal), pleasant and peaceful state for 8 months. My sanity was back and my problems were gone.

10 days ago, the hell came back. 4 days of hypomania followed by 1 day of mixed state, then the dreaded depression hit me again with vengeance.

My medication was:
- Lamictal 200 mg a day
- Lithium 0.65 to 0.85 mmol/L
- Rivotril (clonazepam) 1 mg a day

Since 2 days my medication is:

- Lamictal 200 mg a day (sadly, i can not take more)
- Lithium re-targeted for 0.8 to 0.9 mmol/L
- Neurontin 300 mg x 3 (for anxiety) as Rivotril's replacement.
- Effexor XR 75 mg a day.

So much meds, isn't it? Sigh...

I'm tired, anxious, vulnerable. I know for sure that things will get better with time, one more time. But life is such a mess sometimes.

P.S. I've tried all the meds known to the mankind and available on earth, (except Topimarate and all anti-psychotics drugs). I even tried the dreaded ECT. Bi-lateral treatments. A mess, waist of time (for me anyway). Memory loss and worsening state were at the rendez-vous.

So i keep my finger crossed.

Thanks to read or share.

n.b. as a native french-canadian, be indulgent with my english ;-) Bye.
