I survived Lamictal without incident. Unfortunately, although it seemed to work quickly in helping lift my unipolar depression, I decided to discontinue the combo I had been taking which included Lamictal after 4 months because I was not getting the sustained depression relief I was looking for. I am currently taking only Nardil and after only 3 weeks, I seem to be getting less and less depressed. I will know for sure in another 3 to 4 weeks if Nardil will work out for me. Good luck with the Lamictal as many who have taken it have had good results and of course, others who have not.
> I just wanted to thank you for absolutely terrifying me. By the way I wasn't "yucking it up" in my recent discourse. Of course I know that there can be long term side effects from the rash I got. I'm not stupid. However, your overly graphic information really did nothing more than to cause me to have a major panic attack. I am terribly sorry about what happened to you and I can only pray to God that it does not happen to me. The thought of something so horrid happening because I wanted to be a happy person as opposed to a weak, timid person terrified of leaving behind those she adore or causing them any stress is all I wanted to do. Now, thanks to your uplifting words, I'm sure I'll have such pleasant dreams. By the way, have you ever thought that maybe I was "yucking it up" because I was scared? Next time, think before you type...support is so much better than terror.
