Thank you Scott, its kind of you to respond, and any other response would be appreciated, when you hve time.
Only generics are available to me here in uk, and the brand seems to change with every prescription. Right now the lamotrigine I have Torrent and Relonchem. I envy you in USA with your choice of psychiatrists and meds.
I also know of someone who went up to 400 lamotrigine and it also stopped working, but in his case after 2 years - but it did help him during that time.
It is so scary that meds stop working. I was so well on Parnate alone. But it seems as soon as I reduce meds they stop working.
I did suffer from bad memory loss on lamotrigine, and feel afraid of increasing so much - it would take time, and I dont trust the opinion of the pschychiatrist here, who I rarely see anyway. Lamotrigine between 100-200 was not that different, it stopped the anxiety - but when it stopped working after 3 months, I decreased it. Do you really think I should ask to increase it again? Would it help if they do decide to give me marplan and have me come off parnate, which they have said would be very painful and drawn out, after 6 years on it.
Im sorry for blabbering on. I am in so much pain and fear, can barely type. Thank you for your help. Its nice to know that someone so knowledgeable is trying to help.
