Lamictal: withdrawal, poop-out, effectiveness

Posted by Bela on August 22, 2003, at 12:23:54

I hope I am following the correct procedure for starting a new thread. This subject may have been addressed before, in which case, I apologize, but I can't find it. My drug history: I am currently taking 200 mg. of Lamictal per day (100 morning and night) and have only exhibited radical mood shifts since I started taking SSRIs a few years ago. Before that, the only psych problem I had was insomnia.I am now on my 4th SSRI; all of them poop out after a few months of use--at least for me.The Lamictal was added this past January 2003 to stabilize daily mood swings and hopefully help maintain the efficacy of the SSRIs. It doesn't. I want to get off all of them but very, very slowly because I think the drugs are creating much of the problem.

Questions: does anyone have any thoughts or experiences on Lamictal dose reduction, withdrawal and relapse, its effect on SSRIs, etc? Does anyone else suspect that these drugs actually have exacerbated their problems? If you can shed ANY light on this rather frustrating matter, I would be greatly appreciative.
