hey all, I just finally got my pdoc to dc my lamictal I had to call 3 times to let his nurse know that I felt It was making me feel like a decrepit old man with aches and pains from hell...goofy insomnia related issues and increased anxiety which in turn made it harder to sleep etc...I pointed out that I thought It was giving me some benefit and asked to go down to just 100 mg or even 150mg to see if I could still benefit me w/o neg. s/e's and they called back and said no just take 100mg for 5 days then 50mg for 5 days then D/C it. IT IS SOOO FRUSTRATING THAT WE KNOW OUR OWN BODIES BETTER THAN THESE DOC'S AND WE JUST CAN'T SEEM TO FIND A MIDDLE GROUND! Anyhow I hope that it was not giving me more benefit than I realized and maybe the s/e's would have subsided in time- but you know my depression and anxiety already cause me enough bodily symptoms and it's hard to differentiate what the illness is and what is S/e's. any body else feel this way?
