Re: Histamine - low dose Lamictal? Phillipa

I agree, Phillipa, but no two docs have agreed on what type. It can be frustrating as it effects how they go about treatment.

I remember when I was young I could take antidepressants without them hurting my bladder, and I easily took Zoloft and Trazadone, great combo for me. I didn't have depression and slept great. It's just gotten more complicated as I've gotten older because I can't just pop an antidepressant - they all cause painful urinary problems, and SNRIs cause gastro problems. So I've had to turn to low dose AAPs and certain lower doses of anti-seizure meds.

I've been diagnosed with MDD with anxiety, ADD, Bipolar II, Bipolar NOS (whatever that means) etc. all depends on the doc. But because of my disastrous childhood, I've always had terrible anxiety. I have to keep a cap on that, which Trileptal and Klonopin take care of. Addressing the depression without weight gain has been hard. My maternal side of family has terrible anxiety & some depression, my father was the victim of terrible childhood abuse, which I think effected him mentally and flipped a switch in his brain.

Geodon worked well for a couple years, but turned on me with weight gain. My current doc really wants me on my July dose of 40mg and 600-750mg of Trileptal.

Right now, at least I know Trileptal works!
