fired pdoc 1, see new 10-20. Advice til then?

Posted by gardenergirl on October 8, 2006, at 21:06:59

Current meds:
200 mg Provigil for ADHD (modestly effective for ADHD, but helps me with sleep cycle)

52.5 mg Nardil for atypical depression

125 mg Lamictal to augment Nardil since I can't tolerate doses higher than 67.5 mg. And I'm not thrilled with side effects even at 60 mg.

When I went from 100 mg Lamictal to 125 mg, I was extremely irritable for about 2 weeks. It's smoothed out a lot, but I still feel more on the irritable side than my normal. I'm not sure if I'm in one of those in-between doses where I don't have enough to help, but I have too much to feel "okay" as it is, or if maybe Lamictal is not for me afterall.

Pdoc 1 said to increase to 150 mg, and if I get irritable again, to taper back down to 100 mg. Considering I see new pdoc in 10 days, I wonder if it's worth trying that.

Given that I'm seeing new doc in 10 days, should I try 150 mg, stay at 125 mg, or go back down to 100 mg (a dose that did not increase irritability, but may not have helped depression enough)?

I'm inclined to leave it alone, but anyone have suggestions?
