I hear ya. Interested in other replies. I have no patience anymore with new drugs. I have no advice other than to share your experience and feel for you. I gave up on Lamictal after a week or two. A Sports PDoc says it's great for athletes but I was lethargic and just couldn't wait for the titration, etc. I'm starting to think that the guy telling us to quit the meds has a point, to a degree. I have tried 28 different meds in the past 7 years and am none the better for it. Right now my weight's the highest it's ever been, my social anxiety is worse. I, too, plan things and then freak out and can't go when the day arrives, etc. It's a very lonely, loney existence. And now that I look worse, it seems I'm ignored more.
