quitting Lamictal - Parnate is working!

Posted by blackcat23 on November 14, 2005, at 19:29:28

Hello all,

I've been on Parnate for the past 2 weeks or so, and my depression has lifted-- finally!

I had an appointment with my pdoc today, and he wants me to taper off of Lamictal for 2 weeks and then stop taking it completely.

I've been taking 200 mg for about a year and a half (maybe more), and it's never been clear that it has benefited me. I went through my worst depression within a few months after starting it, but had relief for several months after adding 50 mg of Cytomel to the Lamictal. Besides Parnate, Cytomel has been the only med that has helped me. I've been through all the rest of them! I'm a bit nervous to mess with my meds now that I'm feeling better, but I also like the idea of having to take less medicine.

My diagnosis has always been unipolar depression with atypical symptoms.

If anyone has any thoughts about this or similar experiences in quitting Lamictal, I would be very interested to hear. Thank you.
