No--the side effects from Lamictal went away over time. Usually, the side effects would erupt 2 weeks after raising the dose, then settle down after a few days or so. At some point during the titration, the side effects became overwhelming, so we stopped @200mg.
Psychiatrists just don't have the time to understand ALL of you. They speak in terms of symptoms--some of which they observe from what you say in your visits. That's their job--I don't think they mean to be impersonal--they just can't be too emotional. But I do know what you mean. I felt that way when I was first diagnosed. Now I almost like the über clinical setting.
Thanks for the well-wishing, Katia. I'm in a bad mood. I hope you are feeling better soon, too.
