Hi there,

I agree with you, that Lamictal at this point doesn't make any sense to continue.

You mentioned something about Zyprexa. I think that is a purely awesome idea. To really put the odds strongly in your favor though, take with a little bit of Prozac too. The combination is far superior than either alone, and you should be able to get away with minimum doses or lower.

I've tried Lamictal too. And a bunch of others too. Of them all, the combo of Prozac plus Zyprexa was very impressive.

As for your doc, that is disappointing. I had several docs like that too. Finally when I was shopping for a new one, I made it clear up front that I wanted to do as many short trials of different meds as possible (1 to 4 weeks each). I didn't want to be stuck on any med for 6 or more weeks. I wanted it to work within two weeks, I had faith that the right med for my brain chemistry would indeed work that fast, I didn't want some doc slowing me down.

I found the doc I was looking for. He was caring, and he let me try just about anything I wanted to, as long as I brought in research supporting what I wanted to do. He wanted me to be involved and to make my own decisions.

It does get better. Hang in there!
