I have been taking a low dose of Lamictal since January: 25 mg (added to my Celexa 40 mg). It has been working well for my depression -- it pulled me out of the low-grade depression I'd been for a few months prior -- but Wednesday before last I took a single 2.5 mg Zyprexa and it threw me for a loop for several days! The day after popping the Zyprexa I felt very stuporous, tired, and zonked out. My mind just didn't feel right. To self-medicate, I upped the dosage of Lamictal to 50 mg for a few days, but just felt as zonked as ever. This has persisted, but finally seems to be going away. Meanwhile, about 5 days after that night, I began having dizzy spells. Friday I had /several/ dizzy spells. I'd look up and the room would start spinning. Even after I'd dropped Lamictal to 25 mg again, I've had dizzy spells. What is going on? Is this possible from a SINGLE dose of Zyprexa? From /changing/ the Lamictal dose?
As of today, I'm dropping everything but the Celexa for a few weeks to detox. I feel more out of it than ever...
