Lamictal as stand alone AD

Posted by Nardil on February 5, 2006, at 9:12:46

I have been on 90 mg of Nardil for about six months. I started out at 30 mg per day for one year, 45 mg for nine months, then rapidly moved from 60, 75 to 90. I am gaining weight at the rate of 6 pounds per month and I have not been able to influence that rate by exercise or diet. In addition, I have been anorgasmic since 60 mg. Finally, my mood started to decline about two months ago (poop out at 90).

At that time, my pdoc added Lamictal. I am now at 125 mg per day and my mood is excellent. I have also just started Zonegran at 100 mg, with the intention of ramping up to 300 mg. This is to bring my weight down. I am at 180 pounds and should weigh normally 130.

My question is, with Lamictal working well, would it be possible to get the Nardil down to 45 mg per day or perhaps even eliminate it? I would like not to battle weight and sexual dysfunction my entire life. My pdoc is concerned that Parnate may be too activating for me.

Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.
