> For treatment of BP dis, lamictal is the only esp indicated for bp's who tend to remain treament resitant and lean twoards the depressive pole of the disorder. The flatness often associated with mood stabs often need to be seen thru the normal eye vs our own. when manic, we are high...we taste life and know it tastes better than normal....mood medsw take that from us by design

Tony, I appreciate your input about the falttening effect. Here is an interesting thing that happened to me:
About 10 years ago I was put on verapmil for a heart condition - before I ever new about the mild mood stabilizing properties of this drug. After 3 weeks on it I felt extremely screwed up. I thought for sure it was deppresion or psychosis. I finally figured out that I started feeling this way around the time I started Verapmil. Upon stopping I started to feel ok. I was again prescribed this verapamil a year or so later for the same condition but I could'nt remember why I discontinued it in the past. A short time after starting up again I remembered. It was that same scary feeling. Like I was about to loose my mind and could'nt quite explain how I felt. Not right, is the best words I could use to desribe the feeling. So I was put back on my beta blocker med. Now I read in dr. Bob how it has been used for mild mood stabilization. Go figure? Why do pdocs want to keep giving me these things? Can anyone help me out here? What is wrong with me?
I wish pdocs should warn their patients before presribing such powerfull drugs.
