So Lamictal + Lithium it is!

Posted by CK1 on April 6, 2005, at 18:00:34

Hi all,
Just got back from my doctor and said the Lamictal (at 50mg) was causing anger, rage, and crying spells, but since I backed down to 25mg, I've been doing much better.
He is keeping me on 25mg Lamictal and adding 300mg Lithium Carbonate to settle down the agitation/anxiety caused by the Lamictal. He said he used this combo a lot and it works better than Lithium or Lamictal alone??
Has anyone tried it? I'm not depressed now, but my anxiety is as bad as ever (due to Lamictal I'm thinking). He's also getting me off the 5mg of Paxil I'm taking saying it could be making things worse.
So, for the moment, I'm trying Lithium 300mg and Lamictal 25mg. He wants to up the Lithium to 600mg in a week.

Any comments about this combo, experiences, support would be great!!! Thanks!
