I'm back on 300mg of Trileptal and I feel so much better. 100mg of Lamictal was making me hypomanic and breaking out in canker sores and easily bruising.
I dropped down to 75mg of Lamictal and will go down to 50mg. I really like the antidepressant effect I receive from Lamictal I just want to keep the side effects away.
I will see how the next couple of weeks go. I'm just so amazed at how much better I feel back on Trileptal and shocked at how hypomanic I was.
If it ends up I can't use Lamictal as my antidepressant, what is a good low dose med to add for depression. Lithium wasn't helping for depression.
Wellbutrin is out if the question.
Is low dose Geodon a consideration? Abilify made me fat.
Let's hope I can keep taking Lamictal.
