I've heard that about lamictal and cognition. What was your highest dose?

(Now I am spooked by drugs beginning with 'L'. Lyrica was scare-ee. But here goes my magical thinking again... :-/ )

I have read that AAP's are not really nuerodenerative as first posited. But they can sculpt the brain in ways I don't understand. My biggest concern, again, is the endocrine changes that accompany most of them. But I have a wonky
endocrine system. So I need to watch that aspect.

Let me know what that journal is, will you? She sounds like a good doc.

Most docs and therapists are very rah-rah about lamictal. I am wary of trends, but that doesn't necessarily discount lamictal. My concern is that, since it's mode of efficacy is 'not fully understood' as they say, it will be more fully understood in a few more years.....

Oh well. I balance all this by saying that depression and ups and downs are very proven to damage the brain, so even the unknowns could be worth a risk. A calculated risk.

(I can't imagine I took that much depakote. 150 3x per day maybe?)


I dig a pony.
