In reply to A LOT of anxious energy, maybe akathisia?, posted by obsidian on June 29, 2008, at 22:22:12

it dissipated thankfully...

the lamictal, while more recent, has been at the 100mg dose for a while. I do recall some very unpleasant agitation and irritability while going up on it. I was not very pleasant.

the thing is that it is hard to tease out what is me and what are the meds after so long on them.

I've always suspected some anxiety along with the effexor XR 225mgs. It does me good so I really hesitate to test the theory.
The very most recent thing has been the klonopin .5, and it has helped.
It seems also that when I am under stress (changes at work, etc, too much time socializing, and too little sleep) that the anxiety (which turns into agitation) can really soar.

If I were to change anything it would be
the effexor- if I really thought something else might work well (just because I think it might cause some anxiety)
seroquel- if I thought something would calm the anxiety without the sedation and weight gain
