> Hi, I'm not familiar with Nardil, but I can relate to your weight gain woes since I take Zyprexa, a notorious Fat Drug - an antipsychotic for my Bipolar - and have ballooned up from 140 to 164 lbs and climbing. I'm desperate to find an antidote and was very interested to hear of your use of Zonegran. I have a list of 'antidotes' that I've pitched to my PDOC who is going to talk to me about them on Monday so I'm going to add Zonegan to this list! Anymore info on this med would be helpful.
> Now as far as Lamictal goes, I've had some experience there. I take 100 mg of Lamictal, which I tried to go off of because my PDOC was concerned about it's use since I am trying to get pregnant. What a mistake. I have been extremely depressed, so I have titrated back up to 100 mg again and I am now just starting to feel better. I used it as a stand alone when I was first diagnosed with Bipolar because I presented with more depression than mania at the time, so I know that it works wonders as an antidepressant but it shot me up too high so I had to augment with Zyprexa.
> IMHO Lamictal it is a great antidepressant. No sexual side-effects and I've had my share of those with numerous SSRI's. I have no sexual side-effects from Lamictal.

Just google for Zonegran for lots of info!
