Gotcha. That's what I figured you meant :)
It may be that the Lamictal is just too hard on your tummy. That is not an unheard of reason for discontinuing a med.
It's hard to remember as I've been on so many meds--I lose track of the specifics--but I think Lamictal's sides hung around a little bit longer than ADs and such...maybe I'm wrong though.
I don't know what to suggest. Vomiting does now sound promising, however. I guess it's a judgement call between the benefit of the drug vs. the toleration of the side effects. Have you tried any other anticonvulsants?
I'm sorry to hear about the Meniere's Disease! My grandmother has it but fares quite well. Does the ativan help?
