Hi Colin:

I have been taking Lamitcal with 90 mg of Parnate for a little over 2 months now. I had a tremendous response when I was at 150 mg. In fact, I cannot remember when I felt better. I have been trying for 25 years to get the right combination of meds and never imagined that this would happen.

However, it did begin to 'poop out' so my pdoc has upped it and I am now at 225 mg. I am not as depressed as I used to be, which I should be thankful for, but it was such a tease.

Why, why, does this drug do this. I would really like to understand.

I am losing a lot of my hair as well, which had started with the Lithium I was taking before the Lamitcal. When I felt so good, I would have taken baldness and wearing a wig, to have such a feeling of wellness and not be depressed.

I have treatment resistant depression. Of course, I will hang it with the Lamitcal, but it is so very frustrating.
