I am on 3mg per day Xanax and 200mg per day Lamictal for PD and have been on this combo for a few months with reasonable success.
Lately I have been becoming more and more fatigued to the point where it is adversely affecting my work.
I don't know what is going on, but I am wondering if Ativan or Klonopin is less sedating than Xanax? Maybe this could help me in the short term. Personally I suspect Lamictal poop-out is starting to happen, but if that is the case I still need to buy some time to find an alternative.
On the side, I have turned up very high gliadin antibody levels and am going to the gastrodoc next month on suspicion of celiac disease (maybe people with plain ol' IBS should see their doc for celiac testing?).
I think I will be quite pissed if I have been treated symptomatically for 10 years with hellish ADs while celiac has been the underlying cause and steadily ripping my guts apart and playing havoc with my nervous system.
Such is life.
