> I'll keep you posted with my future lamictal increases and hope the anxiety stays at bay this March. I took klonopin years ago before I got a true diagnosis. It worked great for anxiety.

Hi Laura,

True, clonazepam is the most powerful benzo. It might be a better choice if you are able to get off clonazepam rapidly.

> Have you heard anything about the use of Zantac for weight loss from longterm AD induced weight gain? I saw a news segment on TV about this. The study done resulted in an average of a 25 lb weight loss over a period of a year for a high percentage who participated in the study.
> Thanks, Laura.

I didn't see the news on TV. However, i've heard about Zantac's properties. That sounds very promising. Zantac is a kind of HA-receptor antagonist, which reduces the production of stomach acid AND improves the metabolism's speed.

That's probably all i know about Zantac. But i would be **a little bit** worried about its interaction with the Lamictal on the liver and the sexual dysfunction.

Good luck!
