Mood Switches-Stupid Choices and Depression

Posted by AnneL on January 6, 2004, at 12:27:24


I am having problems. This is my second day of calling off work. I am waking up at 2AM and 4AM and worried about everything. I have been on Effexor 225 mg. for over 3 years along with Klonopin 1 mg. at night and recently started on Lamictal for newly diagnosed BP spectrum. I have titrated up to 100 mg. of Lamictal and the only thing I notice is some occasional jaw clenching.
IMHO, I did something really stupid and immature which involves tagging along to a piercing studio with my two teens (this is my 3rd visit) and I end up feeling compelled to get pierced. The same holds true for spending too much money, getting into credit card debt, buy a car for both my kids when I can't afford it and the list goes on. It feels great at the time and then I suffer the consequences. The piercings get taken out by the 2nd or 3rd day, but the money is spent nonetheless and my husband thinks I really am nutty, but nonetheless he loves me. I know I am in trouble when I don't go to work. I will call my pdoc. Could Lamictal be making me more depressed? I feel like I am just phoning in my life. Thanks for listening. Anne
