In reply to Lamictal and HORRIBLE dreams.., posted by nolegirl23 on March 28, 2007, at 17:03:05

Hi nolegirl23,
When I was on Lamictal I had very vivid dreams too. They weren't so much frightening as incredibly disturbing and frustrating. Bad ones would put me in a lousy mood all day. They were hard to shake off.

Usually they involved me getting into some kind of trouble and spending the rest of the dream trying to fix things and getting deeper in the hole. Often they concerned variations and/or exaggerations of real things that happened to me from recently until back into childhood.

Bizarre stuff. I stopped taking Lamictal a few weeks ago because it exacerbated a urine retention problem to the point where I was afraid I'd have to be catheterized. That happened twice last year and that's more than enough for me.

(of course I was referred to a urologist during all this. And guess how he examined me? You got it - ANOTHER catheter!)

Anyway, the point is that I had to stop taking it. The dreams are starting to calm down but it's taken this long (a few weeks) for that to happen. Same thing with the retention.

Anyway, good luck with all that. I haven't read the updates in this thread yet but I'm hoping you've addressed these issues with your pdoc and that he/she is going to do something about it.

Take care,
Reggie BoStar
