> I have been on Effexor XR 225 mg. for over 3 years now along with Klonopin 1 mg. for sleep. Recently diagnosed as BPII or somewhere in the spectrum and this is my 4th day on Lamictal 25 mg.
> I have periods intermittently throughout the day where I feel that I am "on something" and get some feelings of anxiety. The most discomfort seems to be about 3 hours after I take my dose, this being about 7PM. I also notice a decrease in appetite which is a good thing.
> How long does it take to get used to Lamictal and what can I do to combat this feeling of "uneasiness". Is the correct word akasthesia?
> What exactly does this word mean? Thanks so much for listening. :) Anne

I wish I could help but I didn't experience those feelings and I haven't heard of them. The only thing I can recommend is to maybe take it in the morning so you aren't kept awake at night. I know how it is to try new medication....I have tried more than I like to remember. I hope Lamictol ends up helping you. Good luck. :)
