My therapist today said she wondered why he took me off Trileptal and lithium. She said besides some depression I seemed stable then compared to now with Lamictal

I also hate eating like a pig.

Too bad I couldn't have stayed on lithium and Trileptal and added something for depression. At least then I felt more in control.

This is hard. My therapist didn't like my new docs attitude and said to give him one more visit before interviewing another doc. In the meantime she said if I had extra Klonopin to take it until I was able to get stable.

I feel like I did when I took geodon - at first manic and then stable.

I think I have to go slow with Lamictal because I have failed it in the past. I have to watch out for mouth and gum issues. My gums feel odd now, but nothing bad has happened so I'm staying the course.

Too bad I couldn't get higher on lithium.

But I know if I had to, I could always go back to Trileptal and lithium and figure out the depression end of it.

Why couldn't a low dose of Lamictal work with that combo to lift and brighten the mood?

If Lamictal fails he want to try depakote!

Seriously, I will not put back on the 50 lbs I have worked so hard to lose.

Depakote, seroquel, ugh! Lithium and Trileptal didn't make me gain any weight. In fact I was able to stop my binge eating on those meds.

I hate this. I want my old doc back.
