> Thanks for your reply. At least I am not imagining this. What dose are you currently at? I've been on Lam in that past as high as 200 mgs. and while it does keep the major depressive episodes from recurring, I tend to feel left in a sort of low grade depression or somewhat dysphoric mood. I'm also on 20 mgs. Prozac, and 75 mgs. bupropion. I don't know if I can deal with the obsessing though. I don't have that problem except on Lamictal. Do you notice any difference in the evening on Lamictal? For me, evenings are the worst..I become anxious, dysphoric, and obsess. Don't know if I can deal with this.
> I have been as high as 100mg, but for me it's only tolerable at 25mg. I would really like to go down to 12.5, but the depression/rapid cycling comes back. Evenings are DEFINATELY the worst for me. I don't need to exercise any more because I pace a mile before I go to sleep! Slight exageration, but still. I too feel that, while it stops the horrible suicidal depressions, it leaves me feeling slightly depressed. When I took the Wellbutrin, the dysphoria went away but the anxiety and jumpiness got slightly worse. The best I've felt in years was when I took Wellbutrin and Paxil together, but it gave me such horrible insomnia that I started cycling again. I would really like to stop Lamictal. People don't realize how debilitating the obsessions/ruminations are.
