In reply to Lamictil or neurontin in bpII/psychotic depression, posted by CraigD on September 1, 2004, at 16:02:43

> I'm on week two of lamictal, which has been added to my Celexa 40 mgs to try and balance out my unhinged behavior from the latter. My dad and sister are BP1 and I have a schizo nana.
> The pdoc said I will have to stay on the celexa to handle the anxiety end of things, but after two weeks, I'm finding the lamictal is having an anti-ruminating/social anxiety/paranoia effect. This is mostly why I take the Celexa.
> I'm hoping to ween off the Celexa because I feel awfully flat no (worse sex drive than before), but I'm a bit nervous.
> I also thought, seeing as I am likely BPII based on my success with Lamictal, that Neurontin might be a better choice given my tendency toward anxiety.
> Has anyone had similar experinces

I am responding to my own message bc it disappeared into the Babble cyber-ether. Finding the social anxiety to be returning at 20 mgs Celexa and 100 mgs Lamictal. So far I love it, but I'm wondering if I should keep titrating up with the Lamictal.
