I do tend to think the SSRI's make me worse without a major tranquilizer to counter that damned edgy, pressured feeling. And I can relate to the "dystonias." I am always clenching my teeth and my tongue never rest. It is always going back and forth on my lower teeth. Very annoying (and maybe not the TD from Mellaril).

I too have tried Wellbutrin, no luck, just sweats and anxiety, Serzone, not good!, and I am very leary of Effexor and MAOI's. I am thinking maybe just a bit of SJW with the Lamictal. Maybe that would be enough to give me the positive outlook I get when my seratonin level is tweeked. Don't know if the pdoc will agree!

I too have problems with my skin. Chronic ezcema makes it hard to know what is a "rash" and what is just my skin. The reason why I can't go up on Trileptal is that is has taken all the oil out of my skin til it hurts. I feel like I have a bad sunburn. And it gives me "folliculitis" where my hair follicles are so sensitive, I can't brush my (dried out) hair, or lie on a pillow.

i think Lamictal, after the initial start up period, has a lower side effect profile than Trileptal. so if I could get on it very slowly, and avoid the rash, it might be a more tolerable mood stabilizer than Trileptal.

I am not familiar with Adderall and what is CBT?

Hang in there!
