My medication **UPDATE**

Posted by cloudydaze on September 20, 2007, at 16:46:58

So, Last month I started seeing a pdoc again for the first time in years.

He started me on Lamictal, and it immediately threw me right into a manic episode. By the time I went back, I hadn't slept in about 2 weeks, I was all twitchy, and was having severe anxiety, weird bursts of energy, rapid thoughts & speech, and weird OCD type symptoms (a cup was hanging about a centimeter off the edge of a table, and it freaked me out so bad - I obsessed over it).

Well, because of all this, he added abilify to my Lamictal - and it's GREAT. I am sleeping and doing much better - but I just realized the other day that the strange Vertigo sensations (I feel like I'm gonna black out!) Are actually panic attacks, and not related to the cyst in my sphenoid sinus (supposedly, its not causing any problems - i thought the vertigo was because of the cyst).

So, to make a long story short, I have been having SEVERE panic atttacks since May, and I didn't know that's what they were.

So, in addition to my Lamictal and Abilify, i am now as of today taking Xanax also. We will see how this works.
