Lamictal=Weight Gain Hair Loss? Great....

Posted by Leighwit on May 17, 2002, at 12:55:38

Does anyone have experience with Lamictal without weight gain?

I am so disappointed to read all of these threads when I searched on Lamictal about people gaining a significant to substantial amount of weight!

I cannot go through that again (I gained nearly 30 pounds on Celexa and had gained quite a bit on Paxil several years ago, too). Excess weight destabilizes my diabetes (insulin dosage requirements, etc.)

I have a prescription for Lamictal (to add to the WB I've been taking for years) and have been excited to learn that perhaps the ADs weren't the answer all along -- that I might have been needing a mood stabilizer instead.

Weight gain, however, is simply NOT an option. Unstable blood sugars don't help me to feel better. I'm wondering if all the mood-stabilizers are risky for weight gain.

Help anyone?
