Re: Could this be why?

In reply to Re: Poll: Does Lamictal Increase Social Phobia?, posted by englishman006! on March 27, 2007, at 11:54:08

I noticed a slight increase in situational phobia at 25 mgs - let's say between days 7-25. I should also note that this period included a Prozac withdraw, which now has been at least 2 weeks totally off of this after a 4 week taper.

I'm at 6 weeks, still at 25 mgs (for now, because I am still doing well) and the phobic reactions seem to have subsided a couple of weeks ago.

My guess is that this increase in phobia could be the interaction between the Lexapro and Lamictal.

Did you feel increased anxiety when you first started Lexapro? I have read about Lexapro paradoxically increasing anxiety of many people when they begin taking it, and (here's the zinger) I found Lamictal to increase the effectiveness of Prozac 2-3 times over. In this sense, the Lamictal might be making the Lexapro feel like it did when you first started it. YOu might even have to lower the dose of the Lexapro, as I did the prozac, which started me on my withdrawal.
