I'd be curious to hear a little more about your
symptoms since they seem similar to mine. (I too
am an artist). I take neurotin, and it's not activating
for me (nor sedating), although it was a little activating
at first--had some trouble sleeping, but now it seems
to help me sleep. I don't feel flat on it. I'm not
bipolar (at least I don't think), just cyclothymic.
I take prozac too, for depression. Just got done
with a trial of sam-e--I only went as high as 600 mg's--
it didn't do much for my depression. It did help my
sore, arthritic feet though :-)
The neurotin helped some, I believe, in combination
with an AD, to cut back on the self hatred and ruminating
thoughts. My body seems to adjust to the neurotin
too quickly though, and I seem to need higher and higher
doses to keep that effect. I started gaining weight
at 1800 mg's, and I'm still getting an "ok" effect
from it (feel like it could be better), but I'm not
willing to go any higher b/c of the weight gain.
Mindfulness Meditation helps some with the self hatred and
negative thoughts, but that's a slower path than the
meds...hard work, but very gratifying....
Anyway, I'm rambling--tell me more about your symptoms
if you're up for it, and also keep me updated about
the lamactical--I've been curious about trying that one

Take Care, Ruth
