Re: Anyone else on effexor + lamictal

I am taking Effexor XR and Lamictal for bipolar, and have received no relief/response from the Lamictal. The Effexor is working great for the depression. I'm sure I will be coming off of the Lamictal this week, and starting something else. Depakote worked REALLY well for me, but it caused too much hair loss. Your daughter should NOT stop the Effexor cold turkey!! Her bipolar symptoms, along with the withdrawal from the Effexor could definately cause some intense problems! Try to persuade her to continue the Effexor and to SLOWLY reduce the dosage, just so she can avoid the "brain-zaps", confusion, nausea, etc.
Good luck and keep me posted.
