lamictal - nuerontin

Posted by rjlockhart37 on June 27, 2021, at 16:02:30

i've been on nuerontin now for about 6 months, it's anticonvultant same thing with lamotragine, i take them both at moderate dose. I feel calm, more able to sit calmly. But if there withdrawn im afraid siezures could happen. I don't have siezures, never did but lamictal and nuerontin were given as mood stablizers. I don't have bipolar disorder, i have majoor depressive, generralized anxiety, but they were used for depression with fluoxetine. Anticonvultants seem to stablize sites, and keep mood at bay. They seem to have a calming antidepressant effect when combined. Does anyone know about this kinda combination with botoh of them? there both siezure (but not phenytoin, or phenobarbital which are more potent siezure meds)

it's not so much an antidepressant effect, it seems more calming, or able to stay at a stable mood and not go up and down. Prozac is the depression, which is max'd dose. Right now i feel a bit calm but i can't get into a manic mood, or (hyper mood) even when i have caffeine. I'll just sit there and be kinda calm

Gabapentin would be the best drug for me in terms of anger, paranoid thinking, interpersonal connection, if I could tolerate even the smallest doses.

Possibly because I'm taking it with Lamictal 100 mgs, which I can't do at higher than 150mgs because the cognitive problems are absurd.

I've never had withdrawal symptoms but I've never taken the gabapentin consistently or at a higher dose.

Lyrica on the other hand....
