For what it's worth, Wellbutrin made me unbearably rage-ful. Lamictal sometimes made me irritable when I increased the dosage, but it only last for about 3 days. I seem to need Lithium with my Lamictal. There's no doubt Lamictal is the only thing that relieved my depression, when I got to a high dose (300mg for me.)

I never ever ever drink coffee - NO WAY. But it's got nothing to do with Lamictal. I think it has to do with my bipolar, cause it always takes me on a teeth cletching horrible icky not fun "high."

And I'm sure you know, I don't think any of these things work unless you take them regularly.


> I don't understand. I've just read almost all your posts (which is a miracle in itself since wellbutrin makes me rapid cycle, apparently although we only just figured that out, but it explains a lot) anyway--I'm stopping the wellbutrin--BECAUSE--
> my pdoc wants me starting on lamictal, but I have MAJOR rage problems (when I'm not morbidly depressed) but from a lot of these posts it sounds like Lamictal is going to be just as bad as Wellbutrin?
> I actually had two relatively stable years on tegratol and wellbutrin, but I went off the tegratol because I was worried about my liver and it was screwing up my skin--but I'm afraid everything does that.....oh yeah, and coffee....BAD NEWS!!! As if I'm not already clenching my teeth without any caffiene in my system.
> I don't know. I never want to take my meds--until I'm so effing miserable that I go crying to my pdoc willing to take anything he says, for a little while.......
