> 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'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.
Hi Karen,
Wow! you're on two ADs and you're not manic? It sounds like you JUST started the Lamictal. A few weeks ago (two months) I tried WB w/ Trileptal and went loopey crazy. Previously and prior to my BPII dx I had tried Effexor and also went hypomanic on it. Zoloft made me a zombie. Celexa made me an insomniac and worse off. Serzone made me hypo and then just after Serzone exactly a year ago, I got the BPII dx.

I started Tril. when I was coming down off a hypo period two months ago and it seemed to soften the blow. But I do feel mildly depressed and anxious. I'm thinking about adding Paxil onto my Trileptal and doing away w/ the Lam. The lam is making my anxiety worse. When I was previously on it, I got that euphoria you talk about, but not this time. So who knows what trileptal is actually doing for me now. I just need to be less tense and anxious. I feel like I have an ulcer. It's terrible. I wake up in pain. Health suffers when there is anxiety.
I'm actually off to the doctor's now to inquire about it. Normally they don't tell me a whole lot. They will probably slap the label irritable bowel syndrome on me and send me off.

I have the same experiences w/ the noise. When I'm low, IT'S AWFUL. when I feel good, it's tolerable and when I"m up I fit right in.
