Hey, mental illness give you character! :)

> What meds are you on? Have you found that they help w/ this?

I am on 75mg Effexor, 150mg of Wellbutrin and 50mg of Lamictal (I've only been on the Lamictal for 3 weeks.) I find that there doesn't seem to be anything that improves it. Or rather, completely gets rid of it. If my mood is stable the effect isn't so grandiose. If at a low part of my cycle it's terrible! I think when I'm manic I don't care how much noise anyone makes because I'm probably making it right along with them :D

> I see my pdoc on Monday and will request Paxil. I need help w/ the anxiety part right now. I'm on 450mg of Trileptal and 25mg of Lamictal. The lam. is making me more agitated and anxious.

SSRIs are out for me. They make me completely manic. Zoloft pretty much sent me over the edge with a mixed state overdose that resulted in my first hospitalization. Lamictal has been known to induce hypomania at low doses and/or when starting out. I'm not sure if that's what's happening to me but I'm all for it...it's making me really productive and I'm feeling *smart* on it LOL...I don't think it's mania as a few components are missing from my normal highs. Maybe you need to up the Lamictal? How long have you been on it? Do you find the Trileptal does anything for you? I was on Tegretol (precursor of Trilep.) and it stopped my manias but did nothing for my depression.
